Watch: ‘The Hands of Hollywood’ Chronicles the World’s Most Famous Manual Movie Extra

By  · Published on April 26th, 2012

Why Watch? Someone had to play the hands of Bill Bixby just before turning into The Hulk.

That man was Steve Hershon, a remarkably prolific hand insert model. This documentary is joyous in its trivia and complete in how cool and unexpected finding a Hollywood career can be. It’s also bittersweet, showing how fragile a perfect set up can be.

Watch as, like all things, Hershon’s hand job comes to an end.

What will it cost? Only 8 minutes.
