Hollywood Homecoming: A Starring Role

It was standing room only in Cabot 085 on Friday evening during Homecoming Weekend as Norwich University hosted the East Coast premiere of Gentlemen’s Fury, a new movie starring Jake Head ’97 (pictured in center). The film’s release coincided with Head’s reunion year, and his classmates made a generous showing—as did dozens of rooks, many of whom stayed afterward to collect his autograph on souvenir movie posters and talk with Head about the life of a professional actor.

The previous afternoon, Head and classmate Bobby Carroll reprised their roles as Norwich deejays in the WNUB studios in a marathon talk-radio session to promote the screening of Gentlemen’s Fury. Several members of the Class of 1997, upon realizing who was on the air, made a beeline to the station. The first to arrive was Father Matthew Westcott ’97 (not pictured) who told the story on air about how Head gave him the Muppet nickname Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, with a little help from then-c/SSG Kirk Lagerquist ’95.
