Did You Know? Hazard shares his name with the animated lead character from Small Soldiers, a 1998 DreamWorks film. Hazard doesn’t own the video or DVD, but at one point he had five Chip Hazard action figures adorning his desk. Today those toys have been turned over to his son. Wonder if Hazard will ever see his mini-me’s again.
