Pictured is Derrick “Skip” Engblom and Heath Ledger who played as him in ‘Lords of Dogtown’ (2005). . . The pair appeared in an interview together conducted on June 4, 2005 by The Orange County Register (Barry Koltnow). Upon being asked about what he thought when he heard Heath Ledger was going to play him, Engblom replied, “Five years ago, someone asked me who I thought should play me and I said that guy in the Mel Gibson movie.” He wanted it to be Ledger after seeing ‘The Patriot’ (2000). “I’m telling you that we have a weird connection that is almost supernatural. I knew right away. Two years later, they came to me again and I told them it had to be him, and they said it would never happen. Six months before filming began, I said the same thing. Finally, I told them to get Whoopi Goldberg because if they werent interested in getting this right person, they might as well get Whoopi Goldberg.” Engblom told of how it was no surprise when he found out Heath was going to play him because “it was meant to be”. . . Heath Ledger gave much devotion to his role of Skip Engblom. Not only was his accent striking to that of the real Engblom’s, he went as far as getting fake teeth to further enhance his character development. “I had an accent coach. I always do. Being an Australian, I have to do accents all the time. But, I also had fake teeth. So, I worked on the accent for a couple of weeks, and I got it down. Then the teeth arrived, and I put them in my mouth. I was whistling and spitting all over the place. So, I had to go back to the drawing board and I had to learn how to speak with the teeth in as well,” Ledger told on ‘Live with Regis and Kelly’. He also wore a wig and some of Skip Engblom’s clothes that his wife had saved and lent to Heath for his adaptation. Journalist Joe Donnelly, a friend of Engblom, wrote after Ledger’s death, “He’s almost eerie in how precisely he nailed not only the mannerisms, cadence and physical presence of Skip, but also how he raises Skip’s spirit.”

I couldn't come to LA without visiting @dogtowncoffee - the original Zephyr Surf Shop & home to the Zephyr Skate Team back in the day. Formed by @therealjeffho the Z-Boys included @peraltastacy @thetonyalva1957 & Jay Adams who as a team revolutionised the sport & turned skating into a global phenomenon. Being part of a subculture myself - the custom classic car scene - as well as a big fan of skating & it's roots, I find Dogtown & the Z-Boys incredibly inspiring. They were proof that being the underdog is a good thing & it makes me proud to be just that. . . . . . . . 📷 @huaweimobileuk @huaweimobile P20 Pro . . . . . . . . . #dogtown #zboys #venicebeach #pop #SantaMonica #California #LosAngeles #LA #encourage #motivate #inspire #TonyAlva #stacyperalta #jayboyadams #Revolutionary #skating #skateboards #jeffho #zephyrsurfshop #zephyrskateteam #happyplace #mainstreet #subculture #underdog
