Where have I seen Danny the Drug Dealer before?

The character Danny the Drug Dealer from Withnail and I - has he appeared as a roadie in another movie basically playing the same character?

I've looked on IMDB at the actor Ralph Brown and couldn't spot the movie, but I'm sure that I've seen this character in a different movie. Can you help?

It's definitely something to do with his voice.

I think you're thinking of Wayne's World 2.

Yep,
Del Preston: So there I am, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweets shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me, and Keith Moon, and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweets shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shopowner and his son... that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business, really. But, sure enough, I got the M&Ms, and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show.
