Smith, Danza together in buddy-cop movie

Tuesday, October 19th, 1999 - 5:13 am PDT

Veteran actor Tony Danza will team-up with Rev. Smith this fall to film the buddy-cop action movie Hard to Swallow.  Danza will star as Tony Spazamazoni, a tough but fair cop who’s been around the block.  His partner, an over-eager beginner named Dan Chase, will be played by Macaulay Culkin.  Their arch nemesis, an evil drug-running psychotic killer will be played by the venerable Tom Skerrit.  It is believed that Smith will have a brief role as an extra somewhere during the film’s opening credits.
