Dane Cook, Jeremy Piven, and Kid Rock.

CAVEAT: I'm only happy about this one because I like to pretend that the ceiling caved in two seconds after this photo was taken killing all three where they stood.

I like this photo, not totally unlikely, but still a whole lot of famous. Saw first on an ILM thread, I think.

after I posted that I was wondering if I'd ever posted the Jimmy Savile, Peter Sutcliffe, Frank Bruno photo

Savile probably has as many 'pictured with random other famous* person' photos as Alice Cooper

* Britisher of an era famous

Liz Taylor, innit?

Vanishing Point (Chinaski), Monday, 21 September 2020 21:19 (two months ago) link

The story behind that photo is that Liz really wanted to meet Bowie, so they arranged some kind of hotel meetup. And he made her wait for HOURS and HOURS... maybe just trying to out-diva the diva, but this photo looks like he was deep in the coke years, so that's another possibility.

Hadn't even thought of that.

I mean, they weren't in the same scenes or anything.

Those three definitely never worked together on a film.

you'd think they would have!

at this point though, it's too late for even two of them to work together again. :(

@ KM - George Lucas produced Labyrinth starring David Bowie and with puppets by Jim Henson

Doctor Casino, Thursday, 12 November 2020 20:57 (two weeks ago) link

kid with Andre the Giant is US sitcom star Fred Savage; the photo is presumably from the set or promotional campaign of The Princess Bride, which features both actors although not in the same scenes.

Charlie McCarthy was a popular ventriloquist dummy circa the 1940s

Doctor Casino, Thursday, 12 November 2020 20:58 (two weeks ago) link

Sadly no photos but I’m sure you can picture it, even if the story has been somewhat embellished in the telling.
