Carpool (Film)

I was Tom Arnold’s double in the feature film comedy Carpool, released on August 23, 1996, directed by Arthur Hiller, written by Mark Christopher and Don Rhymer with Cinematography by David M. Walsh. Produced by Arnon Milchan and Michael G. Nathanson, for Warner Bros., Regency Enterprises and Monarchy Enterprises 

Starring Tom Arnold, Rhea Perlman, David Paymer, Rod Steiger, Kim Coates and Rachael Leigh Cook.

Often doing many of my scenes in a single take, Arthur Hiller once called out after reviewing the rushes to me on set “you’re a better Tom Arnold than Tom Arnold – he takes 10 shoots, you do it in one, thanks kid

Buttoned-down company man Daniel Miller (David Paymer), who reluctantly drives the carpool for his children and their friends when his wife is ill, stops to pick up some breakfast — and some thugs try to carjack him. To the rescue comes Franklin Laszlo (Tom Arnold), the struggling manager of a carnival who had been considering whether to rob a bank, but instead has opted to rob the robbers. Due to complications, Franklin has to take Daniel and the whole van full of kids along for his getaway.
