John Larroquette claims he was paid to narrate ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ in weed

He was paid a high price.

John Larroquette revealed Thursday that he and the director of the 1974 slasher film “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” made a deal that Larroquette would narrate the prologue of the film in exchange for marijuana, reports Parade.

“Totally true,” confirmed Larroquette, 75, “He gave me some marijuana or a matchbox or whatever you called it in those days. I walked out of the [recording] studio and patted him on the back side, and said, ‘Good luck to you!’”

According to the “Night Court” actor, he and Tobe Hooper struck up a friendship when Larroquette was working as a bartender in 1969.

“Tobe heard I was in town and asked for an hour of my time to narrate something for this movie he just did,” Larroquette recalled. “I said, ‘Fine!’ It was a favor.”

Laroquette did eventually get paid — in cash this time — as he went on to narrate several “Massacre” sequels.

“You do something for free in the 1970s and get a little money in the ’90s,” he said. “It’s certainly the one credit that’s stuck strongly to my resume.”

“Texas Chainsaw Massacre” killed at the box office making $30 billion out of its $100,000 budget and has since produced several spinoffs.

In a twist, Larroquette revealed that he had never seen any of the “Massacre” films.

“I’m not a big horror movie fan,”  explained the 75-year-old.
