Youk on The Silver Screen?

Today on his site, The Joy of Sox, Allan pointed out something I never knew. Our very own first baseman, Kevin Youkilis, once appeared in a film as a youngster. It was "Milk Money," a feature film from 1994 that starred Ed Harris and Melanie Griffith.

He has an extremely brief appearance, one that lasts just a few seconds. In the following clip from YouTube, you can see a young Youk on the far right of the scene collecting money from kids as they enter a room. Youk is about 14 years old. And yes, he has hair.

But it's on the top of his head. The famous goatee is still a thing of the future. (My thanks to Allan for pointing this out and the link to the clip.)

Enjoy.
