What These Movie Monsters Look Like Without Makeup

You might think Ray Wise plays Dr. Alec Holland, a.k.a. Swamp Thing, in the unfortunate 1982 eponymous cult film. If you’re a fan of Alan Moore and David Lynch, like some of us here at Looper, then maybe that thought makes you happy.

Well, we hate to bum you out, but Wise only plays Holland before his transformation into the Defender of the Green. The actor doing most of the heavy lifting in both Swamp Thing movies and the original TV series would be Dick Durock. Despite his awesome-sounding, alliterative name, Durock is not a porn star or a Stan Lee character.

Outside of Swamp Thing-related matters, Durock spent much of his career as a relative unknown. However, he got to play the love interest of two 1980s sex symbols, Adrienne Barbeau in Swamp Thing and Heather Locklear in 1989’s Return Of The Swamp Thing. And in Stand By Me, Lardass Hogan projectile vomits blueberry pie directly into Durock’s face in the infamous pie eating contest. Durock shuffled off this mortal coil in 2009, but at least he spent some of his time on this ridiculous space rock contributing to wacky 1980s film culture.
