guess who would not talk to us...

I experienced my first (of many) celebrity burn(s) last night. Told we'd get another red carpet interview, videographer Ferguson and I waited all evening. And Bigshot wouldn't even deign to acknowledge us. 
But guess who would!!!!
That's Seymour Cassel, or as I call him, Bert Fischer. The full report will be up on the Appeal Monday, as well as a video of the big diss. But I just want everyone to know that Seymour is a class act and someone else...is not. 
Here's a clue: I'm never recycling again...

Seymour Cassel is in a bunch of really incredible Cassavettes films. He's a legend! Can't wait to hear what he had to say.
Very cool, Beth.

At first I thought the "Bert Fischer" reference was Bert from "Soap", whom that fellow would also pass for.

Lemme guess... Al Gore?

@anonymous: I hope you like it. We were excited.

@DJ: That's Richard Mulligan, star of Empty Nest who would also probably have been very charming had he not died. And nope, not Al Gore.

A favorite Cassel role of mine was Uncle Leo in Dream for an Insomniac, the SF based movie written/directed by Tiffanie DeBartolo. It was a great role in a great movie. Can't wait until Monday to see the tape!

I love that when I click on Bert Fischer this is what I get, "This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document you requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.

My browser doesn't understand OMG!!!
Do I feel chastised!

Love you

Isn't Harrelson a vegan or something disgusting like that? It would go a long ways to explaining his actions.

I *knew* it was Woody! Can't wait to see The Big Diss.

I'm sure you will have some choice words about it, too!

Seymour Cassel is so much more awesome than Woody.

I have a friend who went on an Outward Bound trip (hiking with inner city kids) with Woody some years ago, after he was sentenced to community service for climbing the GG Bridge in an Earth First protest. She said he was nice, but crazy... he brought whole coconuts along as his idea of a convenient trail snack, and then wanted to just throw the coconut shells off into the brush instead of packing them out b/c they're organic after all, right?

then he took the other volunteers out to dinner, which I guess is nice but it was to a raw food vegan restaurant and my friend, though a vegetarian, said the food was awful and all Woody did was talk about himself.

I'd forgotten all about that story till I read this blog entry, so thanks for reminding me!
