Alan Ruck, of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Spin City," started work yesterday on "Booted," the indie comedy that has been shooting for a week. Jerry Blavat, rapper Azizz, NBC10's Bill Henley, Doug Shimell and DJ Omega, 610 WIP's Howard Eskin and Marc Farzetta, 94 WYSP's Gordon and sandwich mogul Tony Luke, Jr. are among those who have shot cameos for the film, by Shaun Paul Costello.
Ruck plays a meter maid in the film and shot a scene yesterday with Ryan Dunn of "Jackass." During a visit to the set yesterday we asked Ruck about the death of filmmaker John Hughes, who directed him in "Bueller."
"We weren't buds, but he gave me the greatest film role I've ever had and I will be forever grateful," Ruck said. As for Dunn, he says he's soon off to shoot "Jackass 3" and also a new show for Spike TV that also features Bam Margera.
