What's really distracting when you go back and rewatch Mallrats
is when you notice that Brandi Svenning's dad is Merle from Walking Dead.
Michael Rooker already had a bit of a rep for playing dark and dangerous roles all the way back in 1995 because he had starred in Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
, but now it's hard to see him doing anything but walking around with a missing right hand and stabbing zombies through the neck and head.
Honestly, it makes Jared Svenning more of a badass.
Don't give him the chocolate pretzel, Brodie....he'll tie you to a chair and beat you.
What's more amazing is that Michael Rooker doesn't actually appear to age, a bit like Adam Baldwin...
