I have met and stayed in the house of gerry patrick hemming. He was hired to kill jfk in miami a few weeks before his death in Dallas. From what I was told he turned whomever down because he knew what was up. No joke.

I have a female second cousin who took worlds in powerlifting. She took out a russian a few years ago in her weight class.

Said cousins uncle was an extra in "ferris bueller's day off" and "The great outdoors" as an extra.

He was also in the last episodes of "Growing pains".

Also was in the series "The tour of duty" as a medic. His name is Christopher.

Iirc he got paid 8k per last 11 episodes for his time in "Growing Pains".

The guy who trained me to drive truck was in the opening chase scene of the movie "Bullitt". Look for him right before the chase scene standing nest to his old dodge.

His name is Randy and he grew up in Oakland. He still has shot in his hands from being peppered by the black panthers while coming out a mall.

My wife's aunt was once "engaged" to Joel Douglas, brother of Michael Douglas and son of Kirk Douglas (not that that's anything to be proud of). I say "engaged" loosely as it was not really engaged, but almost. In fact she ended up producing Romancing the Stone while he sat around and got drunk the whole time. When the movie came out Joel got credit as co-producer while the aunt was listed way at the bottom as "Production Secretary: USA". Eventually her aunt went on to other Hollywood productions, ultimately producing Michael Jackson's last music video, Blood on the Dancefloor. She said she remembers that Michael would show up on time, but sit in his trailer for hours before coming in to shoot the video. She would often go check on him and he would giggle "in a minute". He ended up getting sick about half way through the shoot and they had to just use the footage they had shot.

Also, according to my dad, I'm cousins with Princess Diana.

My girlfriend is best friends with a guy related to Ardal O'Hanlon (Irish actor) who worked on the TV show Father Ted. He also worked with Graham Norton on the same show, who is now a TV talk show host, who has also worked with two of my favorite actresses, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders.

My mom lived down the block from a woman whose house was used for some of the filming in, "Homeward Bound". She used to take her kids to Story Time at the library my mom works in.

One of my ex-boyfriends from high school was an extra in, "The Ring Two".

I've met Catfish Hunter, Goose Gossage, Jerome Kersey, Patrick Ewing, Brent Spiner, Robert Picardo, Terry Farrell, Melissa Ferrick, various members of Le Tigre, Beth Ditto, Ron Wyden, Earl Blumenauer, Bill Sizemore (Oregonians would know this one) and Tonya Harding.

My dad lived down the road from Kevin Duckworth when I was a kid, and when I was living in the Tigard/Tualatin area I ran into Chris Dudley on occasion.

I also met the executive producers of Oregon Field Guide while doing a school project.

That's about all I can think of.

My wife's uncle (her mom's brother) is Eden Pastora

And I had beers in Reagan National airport in 1988 with Adam Ant who I must admit was about as cool as it gets. I was in Marine Corps dress uniform Alpha sitting at the bar waiting on a flt. he came up asked if he could buy me a beer. We talked and when I went to catch my flt the dude actually thanked me for serving the country even though he is a Brit. Seriously, a very nice straight up guy.

I do have to admit that initially before he introduced himself I thought he was a gay dude lookin for some action I was in full on get the fuck away from me mode when he intro'd himself and said let me buy you a beer.

And finally I masturbated a lot to Farrah Fawcett's bikini poster when I was a kid. We did some crazy shit together in my head.

Oh and my dad dated and almost married the blonde haired chick who used to be the color commentator for the miss America pageant. She was on the show in the 70s.

I have met/seen quite a few celebrities, too many to list but Clint Eastwood stands out for me. The others, I was just....meh.

Drew Barrymore "checked" me out in Washington Square Park, and Tiffany Amber Theissen "checked" me out in Saks. Seriously, I know when someone is making the eyes with me. I know people will call BS on that.

Mena Suvari came into my room when I was at The Citadel, and asked to use my hairbrush. Her brother was my corporal. Met a lot of the big time models($10,000 a day models) when I was in NY(I did a couple of modeling gigs). They really are dumb, I mean dumb.

I sat in and rode around in that ferrari and his matching black ferrari. Sammy purchased them legally in the late 70's. The importer tried to smuggle them into the US without bringing them up to emission standards. He had those two cars, a few maserati's, porsche's, lambroghini's and a host of other exotic cars all driven through the border station in the small Maine town I grew up in. All the cars came across the border late at night, an hour apart and had Mass. plates. Needless to say, the border guards knew something was up when the third $100k+ car came through in the dead of the night.

Sammy had to sue the USBP/Customs to get his Ferrari's back. In the meantime, a good friend of the family was the head of the Customs station. He let us sit in the cars and go for rides in them with other officers. I was 8 or 9 at the time.

Sharon Stone grew up in my town. A teacher of mine lost the Miss Crawford county beauty pageant to her. (all before my time)

Tom Ridge used to work out at the same gym as me.

Two summers ago I road in an elevator with Fred Thompson, John Edwards and Ari Fleischer. There was a fourth person in the elevator, and I have a sneaking suspicion it may have been Edward's mistress, but at the time I had no idea.

I met Brooke Shields when she was filiming a made-for-TV movie in Topeka called "I Can Make You Love Me." One of my teachers in high school knew someone from the production crew and got us in. We met her just after the filming of a scene where she gets shot. She was covered in fake blood and was still amazingly hot.

I worked security for a small company while living in Dodge City. A pretty famous singer from Mexico, Jenni Rivera, had a concert there and we helped supplement her security while in town. She really didn't talk to us much, but did thank us for doing a good job.
