Along the same lines, but somehow even crazier, is a subplot involving a young fan who wants Ed Harris' autograph. He shows up at the beginning of the film, trying to get Harris to sign a motorcycle magazine for him, but Harris refuses because that's not what being a Knightrider is about, man. You know that bit in the trailer where Harris yells, "I'm not trying to be a hero! I'M FIGHTING THE DRAGON!"? That's what it's about. I paid very close attention in this movie and didn't see a single dragon, but I suspect it might be a metaphor for actual buckets of cocaine. Point being, it doesn't make much sense in context, either.
Regardless of dragon presence, Harris eventually realizes that this is a dick move, so after he beats up the sheriff, he seeks to rectify it in the weirdest possible way: by straight up rolling into the kid's elementary school, covered in blood, interrupting the Pledge of Allegiance, and giving him his actual bloodstained longsword.
Can you spot the five modern day felonies in just these two frames?
Yes, that Stephen King. The novelist. As an actor.
He plays "Hoagie Man" and appears in the opening dirt bike jousting tournament, loudly telling everyone around him that the tournament is rigged, like pro wrestling. The lady next to him? Novelist Tabitha King, Stephen King's real-life wife, Tabitha King. She plays "Wife of Hoagie Man."
