Is This YOU?
I'm asking for a reason
So now there’s going to be a big backstory book…
In the summer of 1998 this guy and some friends went to play extras on the set of a film. The director David Fincher passed among them offering items from a cardboard box, and our guy took a pair of prop eyeglasses. After the day’s shooting, he bailed, taking the glasses with him.
More recently, he approached me in New York, wearing the iconic glasses and grey shirt. That’s him just behind Brad Pitt’s left shoulder in the movie still.
The powers that be are producing a lavish book to document the Fight Club film production. Memories are being dredged. I’d like to give credit where it’s due, so I’ll be posting this and similar pictures and hope to include the names of those shown.
So, is this you? And don’t even try to say it’s you if you’re Brandan.

One letter off. It’s me.
My favourite thing about this Substack is the pure refusal to ever spell Brandon's name correctly. I love it, I'm here for it.
