When you think of iconic acting roles, what comes to mind?
Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry?
Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow?
Harrison Ford as Han Solo?
How about Dennis Haskins as Mr. Belding on Saved by the Bell?
Laugh if you want, but Clint, Johnny, and Harrison don’t make their decent living simply by hanging out at bars. Mr. Haskins on the other hand… Well, why don’t you just do a Google image search and see how many pictures of pretty (albeit inebriated) ladies you see hanging on him in shadowy bars across the country…
And if pictures aren’t enough for you, be one of those ladies (or guys, I guess) tonight at Sully’s Saloon on 4th Street when the bar presents “Saved By the Booze,” hosted by – you guessed it – Dennis Haskins.
This trend of bars hiring “celebrity” hosts is one that fascinates me. What are you going to say to Dennis Haskins - REALLY? But I guess a picture is worth a thousand drunken words…
I wonder if he is happy in life…
