Why is there no ILX celebrity sighting thread?

We are better than Pop Bitch.

I was looking for one because me and kyle saw K3anu R33v3s at The Black Rider in SF last night. He had a nice chocolate brown suit on and had a great dirty beard that covered most of his face. He was pretty tall and was accompanied by a lady with crazy hair. I thought he looked good but both of the wives said he looked like ass, so I assume that they were probably more right than I.

Long may the sightings (and observations) continue. Maybe keep them googleproof tho'.

I was in the pub earlier tonight, and Rob Newman was in there looking like an absolute tramp. His hair was long and unkempt, he had a huge beard, and he was slumping across the bar in a very drunken manner. It was a bit depressing, truth be told.

Less recently, I saw Ricky Gervais on Oxford Street wearing a very Brentesque leather jacket.

this is not a celebrity but i've been working on a video project for somebody and we had to do some last minute work today and at the end of it her coworker made us a nice meal. during dinner they dropped the info that he had a bit part in "Murder in Coweta County", the 1983 made-for-tv movie staring Andy Griffith and Johnny Cash. he never actually met them but he did go to the premier party and Johnny and June Carter Cash were there. so that's pretty sweet.

We had about a dozen program directors in my 11 years at the radio station. My favorite one was this older guy named Jimmy. Kind of a shorter fella, kind of a rugged Bob Costas thing about him, if you can imagine something so crazy. Brass pipes that sounded just as sonorous in his office as it did on the radio.

He was always vague about his background, just listing a bunch of WXXXs and KXXXs real fast if asked. He once said how "the boys" used to love a big yard he had back in Virginia, but never mentioned them again. But one time, he let it slip that he had played the bad guy in an 80s made-for-TV movie starring Mean Joe Greene.

Say the fuck what? This was 15 years ago, so with an hour of searching online and an hour of waiting for the video to buffer, we finally found some clips. Apparently, the plot began soon after the moment in the Coca-Cola commercial where MJG throws his jersey to the kid. There's Jimmy, with 80s porn stache, walking in on MJG in the locker room, admonishing him for giving up the jersey. "You should've never given away that property. It's worth a lot of money. For someone as washed up as you, Joe, with his better days behind him, that money might be worth something."

"The jersey belongs to the kid now!" says Greene, as he storms out of the room.

(Looking this up on imdb, I guess Greene tries to adopt the kid? That's one way to get your jersey back.)

My co-workers and I stared at the screen. What the fuck is this? Who is this guy? On cue, Jimmy comes down the hall, sees what we're watching. "Oh you finally found it, huh? Now put that away. We've got Bert Sugar calling in!"

So like Adam, maybe this post doesn't belong here. But then again, maybe it's Jimmy who's the real celebrity here.
