Zack Ward, who played playground bully Scut Farkus in the holiday film “A Christmas Story” says he was cut out of royalties on a lot of merch — that’s Hollywood slang, dontcha know — over the years and that they used his image without his permission. Interesting to see what happens.

Ward is a prolific character actor. You’ve probably seen his adult visage on many popular TV series, but you may not have connected it with the bully Jean Shepherd described as having “yellow eyes!”

BTW — I’m kind of “A Christmas Story” nut. It’s my favorite Christmas movie. I just went to see the new Broadway version. Here’s what I thought about that.
