Before They Were Stars: Benicio Del Toro as the Dog-Faced Boy in “Big Top Pee-Wee”

Long before he was the Wolf Man, Benicio Del Toro was Duke the Dog-Faced Boy and had to play second fiddle to Pee-Wee Herman. Benicio’s film debut came in 1988 when he appeared in Big Top Pee-Wee, which told the story of a circus coming to a small town and seeking solace at Pee-Wee Herman’s farm. You can first see Benicio wearing some really creepy makeup as the Dog-Faced Boy at the 3:27 mark of this clip.
