Vernon Wells in "Weird Science" (1985)

Vernon Wells (Ransik, Time Force) appeared in the 80's cult favorite "Weird Science." Wells appeared in one extended scene late in the film, playing Lord General, a madman who may or may not have been created by Lisa (played by Kelly LeBrock), the artificial woman created by the film's two main characters, Gary & Wyatt. In an effort to help the geeks appear courageous and powerful to their peers at a house party, Lisa calls upon Lord General and his biker gang to bust up the festivities and take hold of the boys' teen crushes who are in attendance. Lord General asserts his strength, but the boys don't back down and stand up to the challenge, even pulling a gun on the crazed man, forcing him to back down and release their girls.

"Weird Science" is available on DVD
