    If so who?

    The only remotely famous person that I have met was the British Bull Dog, Davie-Boy Smith.

    I Also had the pleasure of wrestling his ex-wife...she kicked my ass..


    Also who would you like to meet, if had the chance?

    I was thinking either Will Smith or Michael Moore...

    I've met Will Smith. He was o.k. I've also met Matt Damon, Charlize Theron, John Travolta, Kenneth Brannagh, Tom Hanks, Gary Sinise, Demi Moore, Christina Ricci, Ben Affleck, Sandra Bulloch, Jennifer Lopez, etc., etc., etc.

    But the coolest were Romero, Savini, and Tarantino.

    Hmm that is kind of hare to define...
    I suppose I was talking about nationally known or recognized, but if there are lesser know ones, post away!

    While not internationally known or anything, my uncle and aunt enjoyed some considerable fame in Venezuela back in the day. My uncle had a successful sketch comedy show, while my aunt was a well-recognised actress in several Venezuelan soap-operas (as well as the occasional movie).

    She's actually on IMDB, which is pretty neat.

    When I was 14 I had a wrestling match with my friend at a wrestling party. Wayne Bloom, Mike Eaton, Smash from Demolition, Road Warriors, Masa Sieto, Brad Rheingans, and some others were their. Kinda surreal wrestling in front of those guys. My buddy got yelled at for doing a moonsault on me by his uncle. Too risky I guess, but the wrestling scout was impressed.

    Afterwords we had a battle royal with a bunch of Japanese kids. That was a blast. I turned heel on a Japanese kid I was helping. None of us could speak to each other, but we gave a lot of hints and helped each other out.

    Wayne Bloom was an ass. Smash was infact smashed. The rest were pretty cool. Animal's arms were the size of my waist.

    I haven't met anyone really famous, but I've met some famous-type people.

    Norm Abram of The New Yankee Workshop and This Old House, though that was more of me being there with my dad when I was young (though I still think it was kinda cool to see him in person).

    Got to see Scott McNeil at Otakon last year and got his autograph. He even did his Waspinator voice. *obligatory photo pimp* (I also have a picture of him holding Silverbolt, but that's an actual photo, not digital)

    I've met both Dave Taylor (former hockey player) and Andy Kubert (comic artist) and gotten their autographs.


    I've seen a couple celebrity look-alikes, too. Like this guy that looked like Hulk Hogan at Hershey Park, and just a few days ago I sat not too far from a Ron White look-alike at a Ron White show. And my 9th Grade History teacher looks like Leslie Nielsen.


    As for people I'd like to meet, I have to go with William Shatner, Christopher Walken, and the cast of Whose Line is it Anyway?

    Well, we've already covered the fact that I met Mr. T recently.

    I met George Takai right after an autograph session; he recognized me because I waited in line until I was like 3 people away from getting the autograph and then I had to go find out why my Mom was calling for me, so he autographed an 8 x 10 glossy for me. So he's cool.

    I got Marina Sirtis' autograph, but that was a quick "wait in line, shake hands, autograph, next" deal.

    I know some of the members of The Dismemberment Plan, but they broke up. :( 

    I had class with Dave Baker, the trombonist for Miles Davis back in the day. Baker and I are both part of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia!

    I met Rosa Parks and Jesse Jackson at a Democratic National Convention meeting in Durham, NC, waaaaay back when I was a kid.

    If I think of more, I'll edit this post.

    My list is pretty short. Not counting things like comic cons because well, that's what those famous people are there for lol.

    Mean Gene Okerlund was on a plane with Vince MacMahon and Gorilla Monsoon that we were also on. Got Mean Gene's autograph. This was back in the days of kayfabe, when Vince was just a babyface announcer on WWF.

    Dicky Barrett of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. One of my favorite bands and he was really cool. It was before a show of theirs and the opening band didn't show up. So Dicky and a few other Bosstones were just hanging out with the fans until they felt like it was time to get ready for the show.

    And that's it :D

    When I was in elementary school I met Washington Redskins Gary Clark (signing autographs at the opening of a Texaco) and Rick Walker (owned a restaurant in Fairfax City for a little while). That's about it, though.

    I've seen, like with my own two eyes, about as few celebrities. Went to a Rob Zombie concert and saw him from a distance, and saw Frank Cho signing autographs at my local comic shop one Saturday.

    I rarely encounter celebrities.
