Pacino, Kenan, The Wire & More OZ!

Post by heelorton79 » August 27th, 2017, 2:23 am

I stopped by a spot where Pacino would be to help my friend get a photo with him and an autograph. Unfortunately, there was already a line of people waiting for him. The good news was that we didn't have to wait for long. Pacino was taken back when he saw the Michael Corleone Pop, asking ,"is that me??" He happily gave us the full signature, not the crap he sometimes gives out. Of course, I took another photo with one of the greatest ever. After the effortless excursion, we left and went home. On another evening, I took a trip into an area that was known to be..well let's just say "not the safest". However, I knew some police officers would be taking part in the actual event, and it was a community gathering, so I figured it probably wouldn't be that bad. I met some friends there, and as it turned out, it was quite safe. My main reason for going was to meet Reg E. Cathey, for his work on "OZ". The excellent actor also appeared on "The Wire". Other "Wire" cast members here included cast members Sonja Sohn, Deirdre Lovejoy, who also appeared on "The Blacklist", and 'Shameless" (two shows I enjoy a great deal), and Frankie Faison. While Faison has done a variety of things, I made sure to tell him I remember him the most watching him on the short-lived early FOX series, "True Colors". Everyone was friendly, with Sohn being the most preoccupied...but still stopping for us. Being that I had been unintentionally accumulating a "Wire" collection over the past year, and since I heard such great things about it, I may start watching it. Other names here include, Kenan Thompson, one of the more recent SNL cast members I still needed, and "OZ" actor Craig "muMS" Grant, who were both very accommodating.

Nice ones, yeah, Sonja Sohn remains a want for me from The Wire. She was great, one of the few actors that really hooked me onto the show.

still puzzled why people want photos with people most famous from shows they haven't watched (especially The Wire which is one of the greatest shows ever made!), Otherwise, good job as always.
