Are there any good Roddy Piper movies besides "They Live"?

Big wrestling fan, big Roddy Piper fan, big "They Live" fan. That said he's got close to 60 acting credits and all I've seen is They Live. Has he done anything else worth a damn? Any suggestions?

The timing on this made me laugh, not a day ago the local arthouse put up a showing of They Live w/ Rowdy Roddy Piper in attendance w/ q&a. Wonder what his best lesser known flick is, should get that signed.

"Good" and Roddy Piper don't belong in the same sentence.

I think it's his alter ego. There's "Rowdy Roddy Piper" and then there's his less adventurous alter ego "Good Roddy Piper".

"Immortal Combat" definitely appears to have the best "I've got everything under control." "Yes, I can see that." scene in history. And there's been a lot of those scenes!

Nope, that was his co-star from They Live. I can't remember her name right now. Meg…..

EDIT - Meg Foster

Meg Foster, I knew her from somewhere...

I must have watched Body Slam a hundred times on HBO when I was a kid.
