Daily Trivia: 1/31/13

Question: What burger chain was hyped in ads by the milkshake-loving Sir Shakes-A-Lot?

Last Question: What 1986 science fiction film cast Jenette Goldstein as Pvt. Vasquez, even though she thought she was auditioning for a movie about illegal immigrants?

Answer: Aliens

Great job Kickin’ It Old School (@oldschool80s) and Wednesday’s Child!!

Aliens was Jenette Goldstein’s first movie. Due to the title, she thought the role was about immigration. So she showed up to the audition, to play a tough-as-nails space marine, in a short skirt and high heels.
Goldstein would go on to appear on some other successful movies such as the vampire Diamondback in Near Dark (1987), Officer Meagan Shapiro in Lethal Weapon 2 (1989), Janelle Voight in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), the Enterprise-B science officer in Star Trek Generations (1994), and an Irish immigrant mother in Titanic (1997).

Here is the movie trailer for the classic, Aliens:
