Keith David cameo


He was the Gate Guard in the beginning of the movie, possibly he was filming "Saigon" aka "Off Limits" (also about Vietname War) starring Gregory Hines and Willem Dafoe that was made at the same time and place, and Norris used him in his soldier full costume (he also played a soldier in "Saigon").

Yeah, I noticed that too - seems odd that he made this small cameo six years after starring in The Thing (1982).. but I guess stardom didn't come easy for him, so he must've taken all kinds of small parts to make it big, even after having a leading part in one of the greatest sci-fi horror-movies of all time!

Really? I didn't remember he was in this movie!

Prostitute: What the *beep* are you doing?
Johnny: I'm gonna kill a bunch of people.

i thought it was weird how he didn't get credited in the beginning credits if it was really keith david. also i was surprised when it said keith david in the end credits because he didn't get credited in the beginning of the movie. you would think he would have been credited in the beginning as wasn't he by this time an established actor? but i guess his role was so small that he didn't get credited in the beginning.
