2. Fought aliens with Kurt Russell in THE THING
In The horror movie classic, THE THING, David played a station worker named Childs who was pretty much the surliest dude in the entire movie (which was saying something considering the cast was made up of a bunch of guys who were trapped in a research station in the Antarctic with a parasitic, shape-shifting alien monster) and hated Kurt Russell’s MacReady with a passion. So it was only fitting that the last two survivors would turn out to be Childs and MacReady and neither guy knew for sure whether the other one was possibly the alien in disguise. Great movie and great performance by David.
