The part of "Prison Guard #4", portrayed by Deputy Warden David Franchina, was originally supposed to be played by John Robert Mallernee, who was a Correctional Supervisor. However, due to the snowstorm, filming was behind schedule, so John Robert Mallernee had to go on duty, and can be seen at the window of the watchtower (Tower #2) when Gary Mark Gilmore, portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones is being taken to the vehicle that will transport him to his execution. Even though he did not actually perform the role of "Prison Guard #4", because John Robert Mallernee had been signed to a contract, he still received a royalty check, and subsequent residual checks. John Robert Mallernee, an amateur singer/songwriter and disabled war veteran, is a resident in the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport, Mississippi. See more »
