Actor on the comeback trail takes a ‘side trip’
He knew turning over a new leaf wouldn’t be that easy—and if he did manage to get back on his shaky feet again, it would take some doing to get Disturbed Jock’s (DJ) rusty and crusty show biz engine up and running again.
Expecting to have a lot of doors slammed in his face, DJ got in touch with Occasional Handler (OH) to help him make a quick buck—by calling affluent gender-bending benefactors and quick-fixers who would only be too happy to get him through the financial wringer.
Indeed, for some people, there’s more excitement to be had when an element of danger accompanies their hush-hush “midnight” transactions. Who knew DJ could be this versatile, onscreen and off?
