Independence Day Fireworks Make Dane Cook Nervous

The comedian said he always wanted to be a firefighter or a policeman growing up, and the potential hazards from fireworks scared him

Comedian Dane Cook stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live and talked about how, as a kid, he spent Independence Day worrying about wind advisories and fireworks.

“I remember like, you know, walking around and warning neighbors,” he told Kimmel. “I’d be like, ‘Listen, you have some dry brush in your backyard,’ handing out like, goggles. I was very concerned.”

Cook was on the show to promote his latest movie, Planes: Fire & Rescue, out July 18, where he again takes the role of Dusty Crophopper, an airplane that leaves the glory of the racing world behind to help out a crew of firefighting aircrafts.
