1. Percodan. Carried a bottle with me all the time. When a stuntman got hurt, they’d call Hal and tell him to bring his Percodan. When I’d go on location — maybe Mexico or something like that — hell, I’d take 100 with me. Because I know I’d be the only one who had them. So I could pass them out when the guys got hurt. You work a lot when you’re hurt when you’re a good stuntman, because you’re going to be hurt quite a bit. And you can’t let a sore leg or a bruise or something stop you, so you just take a Percodan and go to work.
