Randy Quaid is an actor. Since we know actors don’t have to stop being actors when they are not in official movies, then it should be easy to understand that Randy could be acting a 220;real world” ongoing role, attaching crazy to anyone who questions Hollywool and their role in creating our manufactured reality.
While I like movies, I don’t attach any special powers to actors. Sadly, most people do, and the PRC knows this. Therefore, a good many people will actually pay attention to Randy Quaid, which is why he’s used. While he may not be an “A” level actor, he certainly can still be used to play a “B” or “C” level role outside the traditional roles.
Who better to attach crazy to than Randy Quaid? After all, in the public’s mind, he defines crazy from his most famous movie role. It’s a simple link, but fooling the public is simple.
