"the Red Carpet"... an American thing
Just back from L.A. shooting at the Creative Coalition's
annual gala and we shot up the red carpet as celebs arrived. The Red Carpet is one of those strange American things that EXTRA
has made as needed at any event as VIP gift bags with Botox gift certificates. The PR firms (and they all do this) will print up a list of every celeb* they claim is attending (* celeb may be attending if a VM message regarding said event was left on the William Morris agent's phone). IS attending if VM message left on same agent's cell phone). But we did get to chat with director Frank Oz (who said he's 'unemployed' - quick, call Ms. Piggy!), Barry Levinson (producer-about-town AND writer of my fave Mel Brook's comedy "High Anxiety"). The most disturbing actor on the carpet? Charles Fleischer ("Roger Rabbit" & "The Polar Express")... he was on *something* and could do a bang-up job in the "Bi-Polar Express". along with Seth Green who had an extreeeme mohawk (which actually made him taller than me). I asked him to come to Dallas to shoot a film and he said he needed provacation... 'provacation' I asked? Is that a new SAG term?
.............. Seth Green could pass as my younger, shorter, insipid brother
