I was in legendary Halloween kids movie – now I've quit fame to run a cannabis business | The Sun
AN actor who was in the original Hocus Pocus has quit fame to run a cannabis farm.
Hocus Pocus was released in 1993 and has became a cult classic with star performances from Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as three witches.
Omri Katz was just 16 when he landed the part of Max Dennison in the movie, with his character being the one to accidentally resurrect them in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween.
It's down to Max to stop Winifred, Sarah and Mary taking over Salem with the help of his little sister Dani [Thora Birch] and crush Alison [Vinessa Shaw].
While Bette, 77, Sarah Jessica, 58, and Kathy, 66, all made an appearance in Hocus Pocus 2 – released in 2022 – Omri, now 47, was noticeably absent.
But in 2020 he revealed he actually quit acting more than two decades ago and now runs a company called The Mary Danksters, which sells cannabis-themed merchandise.

Writing on Instagram previously, Omri said: "Lots of people wondering what I’ve been up to.
"Being a member of the cannabis community for almost 20 years now and jumping thru hoops of fire to get here I’m proud to announce our online apparel store will be opening up soon."
And Omri has revealed he was high while shooting some scenes for Hocus Pocus.
He told Entertainment Weekly last year: "That was at an age where I started experimenting with cannabis. Let's just say, some of those scenes, I was having a good old time."
