It was fun to have Tuckerton's own Mike Dupree and his best friend Horace on the Lite Rock Morning Show today.

After years as an amateur ventriloquist, Mike got the phone call of a lifetime from a booking agent back in 2019 asking him to audition for a role in a movie. Producers were looking for someone to cast for the part of a ventriloquist in a movie that turned out to be "Halloween Kills".

Well, Mike got the role and shot his scenes for the film.

Unfortunately, then the pandemic hit, and the release of the movie was pushed back until just recently.

"Halloween Kills" debuted as the number one movie in America at the box office earlier this month and suddenly Mike had a pretty good story to tell.

Mike told me about his experience shooting the movie and the way it has changed his life. It's a very cool one-in-a-million story and it was great having him and his better half, Horace, on the show!

Here's a little off-air video we shot to commemorate Mike's appearance on the Lite Rock Morning Show.
