“He is having trouble pronouncing mulligatawny….I changed my mind No SOUP FOR YOU!!!!!!!

He was all smiles posing for pictures and signing autographs, “My episode of the soup Nazi was in 1995. There was one soup Nazi episode and then I did a cameo with a lot of other guest stars in the finale. So I was only on the show twice.”

Thomas says he is working a bunch on Indy films. One a western and says he has high hopes for it.
