Some Old Friends

Hi.

This Wednesday, November 22, 2006, the new Christopher Guest movie For Your Consideration will be released nationwide. You should totally go see it. I mean, you HAVE to go see it. And not just because I've met a bunch of the cast members (though I am kind of implying that that is why you should see it).

So, if that works to get you to the theater, great! See the movie.

If you're wondering just who in the cast I have met (because it really all does come back to me), check out these portroids:

Here are some video clips from this past weekend's press junket:





Consider it!

Two New, and Who Knew.

This weekend we attended a screening of Steel Toes at the Denver International Film Festival. In attendance was David Strathairn. I got his portroid. See it here. I also got the portroid of his co-star Andrew Walker. You should look for great things from this actor. He's talented. Here's his portroid.

This was on Saturday.

Sunday I got an email from the Film Society briefly discussing events from the previous day, and inclusive was a small photo gallery. Oh, hey, there's David Strathairn. I saw him. Cool. And there's ... huh? what??? Ian Somerhalder??

So, I yell down the stairs to Erica, "You'll never believe who was at the film festival yesterday! Ian Somerhalder!" To which she responds with a confused look, furthering my further explanation, "He was Boone on Lost!"

She smiles. "I saw him! He was sitting right behind us at the movie!"

"WHAT?"

"I wasn't sure it was him, but now that you say it, he was definitely there. A couple seats away."

"Why didn't you tell me?"

"I didn't want to look foolish if it wasn't really him, and I didn't want to call him 'Boone' and have him overhear that."


And so it is, that I once again missed getting a portroid of Ian Somerhalder. The first time was after the play Dog Sees God in NYC.

The sad part is that I actually saw him come into the theater, but was only looking for David Strathairn, and so was blinded to other possibilities.

The moral here is that I'm kind of stupid. And oblivious.

Bye for now,
Rick
