Dana Olsen's cameo


Obviously Dana Olsen, the guy who wrote "The Burbs" has a cameo in the movie as a cop. Does anybody know which cop it is?

I guess he's the one who asks: "What is the problem here?" seconds before the Klopek's house blows up, but I'm not sure.

Has he done much other than the Burbs? I guess the IMDB would tell us.

Most noteworthy seem to be "George of the Jungle" and "Inspector Gadget".

But I heard he was the host of some comedy special show a couple of years ago (although it's not credited on imdb).

Re: Dana Olsen's cameo


Sorry, but this is not Dana Olsen, as I've learned. This person we were talking about is "Kevin Gage".

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0300824/

Further proof can be found on his homepage:

http://www.kevingage.com/movies/burbs.php

So we have one more riddle to solve: Who was Dana Olsen?

Re: Dana Olsen's cameo


I always thought he was the one who says "Did I ask you" and "Is that your house Dr Klopek?"

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's go over the fence and not come back until we find an answer to this. I always thought that it was that guy as well. The old cop is Rance Howard - Ron Howard's father. I think the black detective is Franklin Ajaye? What other cops are there? I just searched and there are no photos for him in the first dozen sites I went to including the IMDB.
