The Man who would be SHREK



Today he would have  celebrated his 51st birthday,
he was meant to be the actor to voice the character of Shrek,
but a heroin and cocaine overdose ended his life on December 18 1997.
His name: Chris Farley


He rose to fame in America as one of the stars of Saturday Night Live,
just like the man he idolized: John Belushi.
He even made the switch to Hollywood with a couple of successful comedies,
such as Tommy Boy, Wayne's World (1 and 2) and Beverly Hills Ninja,
just like the man he idolized: John Belushi.
And unfortunately enough
He wanted to be taken serious as an actor and died as a result of drugs,
just like the man he idolized: John Belushi.


Irony has it that at the time of his death Farley had already recorded the dialogue 
for the part of Shrek, a role that would have made him a household name.
After his death however the part was taken over by his fellow Saturday Nigh Live companion 
(and the man who gave him his first film-role in a feature film): Mike Meyers.
