Bigfoot, starring Bonaduce (The Partridge Family) and Barry Williams (The Brady Bunch). Airs June 30.
“I had one condition, and that was that I could beat the heck out of Danny Bonaduce at some point in the movie,” says Williams, best known for playing squeaky clean Greg Brady. (In a 2002 match on Fox’s Celebrity Boxing, Bonaduce, who played the mischief-making Danny Partridge, bested him.)
Williams knows that casting him and Bonaduce is a publicity stunt with the potential to draw curious fans of these vintage ’70s shows. “When you team Barry Williams and Danny Bonaduce in a movie, that’s inescapable,” he says.
Bonaduce shares the sentiment. “If you took The Partridge Family-Brady Bunch quantum out of this, you’d have yourself a pretty good sci-fi movie about Bigfoot. It’s just that big numbers (of viewers) are going to be coming because of Greg Brady vs. Danny Partridge going after Bigfoot. Otherwise, you’d just have the Bigfoot cult and the sci-fi cult.”
