Barbara Walters

That Girl (I know it's Marlo Thomas)

Bill Macy

Ted Danson

Marvel Girl, Jean Grey, uh. . .dammit. Famke, something.

Near malfunction

I'm getting better at recognizing these people. Yes, I know her show. No, I don't remember her name.

Mr. Streisand

I got nothing.

Providence. Do I get half points for remembering her show?

Sharon Stone. No, really.

As the sun set over the truck farm, I can't help but wonder who's covering my regular shift.

I LOVE Arrested Development. I actually was in fear that it would be taken off the air because no one knows about it or so few watch it. Maybe with the award the audience will grow. I also think Scrubs is great and very under-rated. I was surprised Curb your Enthusiasum didn't do better and what happened to Six Feet Under? For some reason this past year, after David's assault, I tuned out. Maybe because of my assault? I don't know. Nice pictures, up close and personal. Very very nice, thanks for sharing them! (excuse the rambling, thread drift)

I can put a few more names to some of these, with some help from IMDb.

The woman on William H Macy is his wife, Felicity Huffman of Sports Night and other shows.

Below that is Famke Janssen, who I first saw on Star Trek: Next Gen. Seen more recently in a Bond flick, and in X-Men.

Below her I believe is Teri Hatcher, of Superman and another James Bond flick. One-time most downloaded celeb on the internet. Great shot of her, beFrank! (Although I'm not 100% it's Teri Hatcher.) Whoever she is... woot!

The actress from Providence is Melina Kanakaredes, now starring on the new CSI: New York.

Terri said...

Yes, that's Teri Hatcher and it looks like it's almost Teri Hatcher and "guest." Remember the Seinfeld episode with Elaine's Christmas photo. The "nip?" As Kramer would say, Hoochie Mama!

I so want to beYou, I love your job. :)

SidDawgone said...

These must be the be-youtiful people of Hollywood! Good job, 'b! (especially nice one of Brad, too!)

Oh, and Michael Jackson? I think he's a freak.

gemmak said...

Wow! just Wooowwwwww! Sorry to be so star struck, I know its naff, its just we Brits don't ever see all that for 'real'. I'm with True Willow on this one and Sid on MJ! Oh and Tyne Daly I assume believes in the Non Hollywood ethos of 'growing old gracegully'? Meow, sorry. :o)

magz said...

WAY, 'b!! Nice shots... and I for 1 think Stockard Channing is looking particularly beautiful.. whotta classy lady! Do ya 'spose any of these celebs read ya? and if not.. how do ya get em to? They should you know....

Tara said...

Lucky you! And cute in a tux, too. :)

TLJ- Aw, shucks. Thanks for the little boost to my ego.

Grace said...

hey I was there- sorry i didn't see ya- as for celeb sightings, I'm not a fan type, few impress me BUT - I did get to meet a childhood idol- Ms. Barbara Walters...SHE IS AN INSPIRATION.

Grace said...

oh and anyone who reads my journals knows that I was hugely influenced by THAT GIRL Marlo Thomas and her hubby PHIL DONAHUE...didnt see them there-glad u got a photo of her.

Grace said...

mr. streisand- lol

beFrank said...

Terri- I've missed most of the Sopranos since the rape of Dr. Melfi. In the last couple of years I've found realistic violence in movies and TV a whole lot less entertaining.

Remember "OZ"? I don't.

Scrubs and Arrested Development get Tivo'd.

beFrank said...

SidDawgone and true willow- I cracked up when I actually caught the creative use of the "be" in your comments. I think I let a couple slip by recently. Just letting everyone know, I really do think it's cool when somebody else does it.

gemmak- You want them? I'd be willing to ship off the lot of them to your side of the world. I think too many of these celebs are "naff" and me also for standing in the sun for three hours to record what they say. ("naff" means crazy, right?)

magz- I'm working on business cards to get the word out. There are one or two celebs that I think might find some of this interesting. I'd be interested in hearing more from them on what it's like to be facing the business end of what I do.

beFrank said...

Thomai- Sometimes I'm easy to pick out in a crowd. News camera, bandana, pained and/or bored look on my face. More pained than bored for this weekend.

How was the show?

beFrank said...

dkgoodman- Thanks again for putting names with the faces. I'm just happy that everyone I took a picture of was a celebrity this time.

Terri said...

Re: Teri Hatcher... I can't help thinking "they're real, and they're spectacular!"

My father, a producer/director for ABC (currently retired) went to school in Dayton and was friends with Phil Donahue. Literally my dad helped create the idea for his talk show. My Dad also create the morning talk shows like "Good Morning LA" (except it was in Boston) The cool part was growing up I got to go to work with my dad. Some of the people I met were, The Beatles (I got to go to their hotel room and George made me eat or said I would faint - I was in 6th or 7th grade and obviously this one event made me incredibly popular that year - people just wanted to touch me because I had touched 'them' - how weird is that???!), Frank Zappa, Alfred Hitchcock, The Monkees, Phyllis Diller, (you know what I just thought? Probably half the people reading here don't remember these people huh?)...anyway, it was cool having a dad with a cool job. My dad started his career as a disc jockey so I also had a huge record collection by the time I was 7. Wish I had even 1/3 of the 45's (yes, even in radio stations they had 45's in "those days.") I had when I was young.

Brian said...

Wow. Great pics! Your work must be fascinating. Great blog...I'll be back to visit frequently.

MsOktober said...

I actually think Stockard Channing looks really pretty in the shot you took of her. She's aging well.

I'd been hoping Dylan McDermott might be presenting since he was on The Practice and James Spader was up for an Emmy for his role on the show....but no luck.

Man, Dylan....he's hunk-o-licious.

beFrank said...

Terri- Real? Maybe, but spectacular? I think Stockard Channing wins hands down for being a classy woman who showed just the right amounts of everything. We did not get a chance to speak directly to her, but I found her to be my favorite celebrity this year. I liked a couple of others, but she stood out. Teri Hatcher? Sharon Stone? Nothing against them, but Stockard Channing had my attention without being as daring in her attire.

beFrank said...

Aime- I'm a big advocate for free speach, but gosh, "hunk-o-licious". (gag!)

beFrank said...

Brian- Interesting, yet all I want to do in life is have a beer and a bowl of chili with the people I've met through my blog. I love my job, but it's at the end of the day, the family I come home to is what makes it all worthwhile.

magz said...

yay! i win, being first up to recognize ms channing as the 'class act'... she looks just like our all-time favorite auntie! 'beRyan? the chili's crockpottin.. this weeks feature is rattlesnake chili with fresh habenero's.. bring yer own vaseline. Dave commented on ally's that his vocabulary was gettin stretchmarks from bloggin...lol. hunk-o-licious indeed!

MsOktober said...

Goodness ~ can't have you or your other readers gagging!

Let me rephrase: Dylan is a very attractive representative of American manhood.

beFrank said...

Ggggggggaaaaaaaaaaaaaaggggg.

Stockard Channing is looking rather Elizabeth Taylor-ish, isn't she?
