Oompa Loompa Imposters
For years Ezzy Dame has been living a lie. Thirty four years ago he padded his resume with the claim that he had played an Oompa Loompa in the 1971 version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
. With the release of the recent version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
, reporters sought him out for his opinion, as an ex-Oompa Loompa, about the film. This caught the attention of a real ex-Oompa Looma, Rusty Goff, who outed him
. Goff claims that he's aware of other "Oomposters."
There are other Oomposters, Goff said. One little entertainer in New York tried to pass himself off this year as an Oompa Loompa, evading reporters from The Times in London when they compiled a story on the original stars.
I'm tempted to add a line to my resume claiming that I was an Oompa Loompa.
