You have seen him opposite the Luscious
Jackson crew in the "Naked Eye" music video
and also in the Adam Horovitz's
movies Cityscrapes: Lost Angeles (1994) and Lost
Angels (1989). But who exactly is Max Perlich?
Ahh... Max Perlich, where to begin?
He is a talented character actor, skater, musician, Jamaican
music aficionado, car collector & friend of Beastie
Boys. Max's resume is as diverse as the Ricky Powell's.
He got his start playing small parts in movies and also
on television. For the skate rats and Beastie fiends, he
became better known for showing up in the presence of skaters
and musicians. If you own it, you may recall seeing Max
not only skate in the SKTHARD video that Hosoi
put out in 1988, but also making the beats for it.
Around the same time, you may have
also seen Max rocking a Beastie Boys shirt in Can't Buy
Me Love (1987). After a while, he became a ubiquitous
fixture showing up at various Beastie Boys concerts and
also on Ricky Powell's Manhattan
cable access show Rappin' With The Rickster.
Recently, Max has been refining his
craft as an actor. Having been in over fifty movies, appearing
in everything from Ferris Buller's Day Off (1986)
to Deadrockstar (2002), Max only continues to improve
and amaze audiences. Audiences all of the world saw him
play the role of Kevin Dulli, in the 2001 Johnny Depp blockbuster
movie Blow. As a side note and a little piece of
trivia, Max Perlich's father is a famous radio disc jockey
in Los Angeles, CA.
