Lloyd Kaufman: The Toxic Director

The filmmaker gets his close-up after 40 years of Troma (more or less)

De Jesus, who has a 10-month-old daughter, works at Times Scare and still encounters people who say they're afraid of little people. "Sometimes, I would let it slide. But sometimes, when they got more crazy with it and sarcastic with it, I'd jump in their face and be like, 'You scared of little people?'" He's telling me this over the phone, and even I'm terrified. "They start running, and I run after them," he says, laughing. "I actually made a bunch of people pee on themselves."

He told me this story on Sunday night. By Monday, he had been offered the part.
