my buddys sister was an extra in Pulp.. Tonya Richardson. she was an asst for Torrintino and the day of the 50's bar shoot, they needed more extras so he told her to goto wardrobe . she is sitting at the bar when they walk in with i think 2 guys next to her. no speaking parts.
I got to work with Sir Richard Attenborough when he was directing Grey Owl. He even gave me credit for a 3 second part scene between him and I lol. I also got to hang out with Roger Pratt (Director of photography) and after the movie was over he sent me a 12 Monkeys shirt that Bruce Willis had given him.
That is awesome.. Part of 12 Monkeys was filmed in a retired electrical plant where my dad worked if not mistaken?The whole Attenborough family are icons. My Cuz is into acting, she went to USC won all sorts of awards (david dukes and jack Nicholson award) then she went to Juliard . Robin Williams paid her tuition her sr yr(the yr he died) :( ... she was just on Blue Bloods in Jan and New Amsterdam in Dec. she was on the pi,ot of "How to get away with murder" and also did "The good wife" and "Elementary".. she mainly does plays tho.Got to meet Gary Marshall a few yrs ago too because she did "Frankie n johnny" play.
There were a couple famous writters and actors at my HS, Marta Kauffman (Friends) and Naomi Zaslow (nyt?). actor Andiran Pasdar was a grade or 3 ahead of me and one of my good pals sister is Suzy Pai (big trouble in little china and Sharkys Machine). she still is gorgeous.My gf was pals with her.
One of our teachers was in prolly the most famous movie of all time "The Wizzard of Oz" Mienhardt Rabbe played the Coroner"The wicked witch is truly dead".. He taught Horticulture but all the "lil ppl" were all germans so the language arts teacher would bring him in to talk about introduction to German. We just talked about the movie most of the time tho lol..He was also "Little Oscar" for oscar myer weiner. His wife was the smallest Ballerina gal in the movie. They moved to fla from se pa. Think he accidentally ran her over . Ironically he hit my buddys sister (that was in pulp fiction)with his vw micro bus walking to school one day, she didnt get hurt bad.
We are getting movies shot around here. The Judge with Robert Downey Jr was shot about mile down the road. Everyone said he is super nice. Newest movie is The man who killed Hitler and then Bigfoot with Sam Elliott. There’s a scene in a bar I use to frequent. Plus Penn Jillette went to my school.
buddy of mine is from Barbados, he was a prof Body builder. first time he went to north america was Canada in the winter wearing a polyester leisure suit. He said the cold actually made him feel intense pain for the first time lol..
