Glazer: Rubicon Star Rip-Off Repaid in Kind

A brief followup to my story about former Kansas City actor Arlis Howard, the star of TV’s new hit drama RUBICON on TBS…

Arlis showed up in KC a couple years back to promote his new film, Big, Bad, Love, co starring his wife Debra Winger. And I met with Les – his bartender monicker when he worked for my dad at Stanford’s in Westport years ago. So Les and former Stanford’s general manager Larry Marks and I had lunch together that day. Larry had been close with Les when he bartended there in the early 80’s.

In fact it was Larry, a Vietnam war vet, who’d showed Arlis how he and other field troops has cooked eggs in their helmets during the war. They’d cracked the eggs, salted and peppered them in the helmet, took a lighter and cooked it all up in the helmet bottoms and then ate them.

Later this turned up in a scene a scene in a movie Arlis starred in called Full Metal Jacket.

But Les and I never got close again after he moved to LA.

    Iam a vet, that is true about the eggs, I did it myself. I saw Full Metal Jacket and remember that in the film, hope Howard gave that Larry guy a couple bucks too.

    Arlis is bigger than I thought. Didn’t know who he was but now I do, love Rubicon.

    Your bartenders robbed you cause they didn’t like you guys. At Kellys everyone is honest.

    Stumbled onto this site from another KC blog. Should have stayed put. I mean, while I know Howard’s work, I’ve not one inkling who the jackass of an author is.

    HC: Let me get this straight, you read stuff only if you know the writer is? You must really get around.

    Knew Les very well in the Indy “hood”. Happy for the guys success. When we met in the first grade he was living in about a 800 sq ft track house in “Pinedale”. Also enjoyed you referring to him as “Les”. Can’t get use to the “Arlis”. Good coverage Craig.

    Craig good story. Sounds like Morty with the stealing. And for Kellyguy your a joke. Concentrate on your beer/pizza parlor. Drove by westport last night for grins and the only bright spot in Your bar,Kelly’s is the sign out front. As for an honest family I happen to be in it. Fuck yourself you don’t and won’t know Shit. Keep going Craig. Do a story about my step dad Morty. Ritchey

    Reminds of the story about the old retired Jewish guy who buys a bar. Not knowing anything about the business he goes there on a nightly basis just to observe
