Hey Michigan ‘Christmas Story’ Fans! Here’s Your Chance to Meet Scut Farkus
Christmas movie season is about to go full throttle with all your favorite holiday classics heading to television and a streaming platform near you. Sure, we all have our favorite we continue to watch year after year, but is any movie as iconic as A Christmas Story? Well, get ready Michigan, the head bully himself is heading your way to spice up your holiday season.
He didn't shoot his eye out, but he did give poor Ralphie one hell of a time. It's time to relive the nostalgia and magic of A Christmas Story as Zack Ward, the actor who immortalized the role of the notorious yellow-eyed, fur-capped, coonskin-capped bully, Scut Farkus, makes a special appearance right here in Michigan.
Sarge & Red's Toys and Collectables in Utica is ready to roll out the red carpet for this extraordinary opportunity to meet the man behind the memorable character. The popular collector's store is bringing Ward to town just in time for Christmas for some meet-and-greet fun and conversation.
Ward, who is 53 now, is probably best remembered as a piece of nostalgia for his role as the tyrant bully, but he actually went on to have a pretty amazing career. He went on to star in such films as Almost Famous and Transformers and appeared in the horror films Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Freddy vs. Jason. Last year he reprised his role as Skut Farkus in the sequel to the classic holiday flick, A Christmas Story Christmas.
