I remember watching the very first episode of Malcolm in the Middle. It started in the kitchen, where the shirtless dad (Hal) was getting his back hair trimmed by his wife as the kids were eating breakfast.
It was so horrible, you had to laugh!
So I was interested in this interview where the actor who played the dad, Bryan Cranston, talks about the scene. Apparently, to give him enough back hair, they glued YAK hair to his body! Yak hair looks sort of like human hair, it’s just longer. (If you want to hear his funny description of it, go to NPR here and listen at 9:30.)
Hey, you know what would be REALLY gross? Seeing someone with a hairy back who was sagging. Yuck!
