Back on October 26, 1995, Woody Harrelson, Bill Murray and Randy Quaid were in rural Mars, Pennsylvania to shoot some scenes from the comedy Kingpin.
Kingpin was directed by the Farrelly Brothers who were also the duo behind many hilarious comedy hits such as Dumb & Dumber, There's Something About Mary, and the upcoming The Three Stooges movie. The film follows Roy Munson (Harrelson), a former pro-bowler who loses his bowling hand. Years after his accident, Munson teams up with a Quaker bowling prodigy and the two set out to take down Munson's bowling arch-nemesis: Ernie McCracken (Murray).
The actors did decide to have some fun during their busy work schedule by stopping at a local bowling alley between scenes. The Farrelly brothers, Harrelson, Murray and Quaid all took turns showing off their impressive bowling skills for the camera.
