There is a long and proud tradition in Hollywood of actors playing mentally retarded people. From Rain Man to Benny and Joon, there have been some amazing tard performances. Today I want to salute one such performance.
Movie tard history was changed one day when a 6 foot 8 inch tall plumber from Syndey Australia was cast in his first acting roll.
As Blaster in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Blaster was the muscle that ran Bartertown, and along with the guidance of a midget, they formed the duo known as Master Blaster. They ran the methane power plant that gave Bartertown its electricity.
The hero Max is hired to face Blaster in a fight to the death. But after discovering Blaster could hear a dog whistle, Max was able to knock the metal helmet off the giant. That’s when the real Blaster was revealed
Blaster was a tard. Master begged for his life to be spared. But Blaster was shot with a crossbow.
Is Blaster the greatest Movie tard ever?
What’s your favorite midget/tard combo?
