  • Mr. T - Back in the early '80s, I was working for a casino in Lake Tahoe as a security guard. One evening I was asked to go to the front entrance to help escort a guest. I arrived with about four other security personel to find a gentleman with a parka on, which covered most of his face. Well, he turned out to be Mr. T. We escorted him through the casino without any problems, but now I tell people that once upon a time I was a body guard for Mr. T (for about 15 minutes).

  • Jane Fonda - I met Jane Fonda at Kingsford Smith Airport in Sydney, Australia in February 2006. We were both waiting at the departure gate. Our flight was majorly delayed and we got to talking about how misinformed we all were about the status of the flight. She was very nice and very funny, that is until someone asked her for her autograph. Things went downhill after that. I did get her to autograph my boarding pass and had a few laughs after when I tried to give her a stuffed wombat but the more people that bothered her, the quieter she got. I don't blame her one bit though. I can't imagine what fame is like and all she wanted was to get on the flight and go home. I didn't see her again after we boarded the flight. My joke for the rest of the trip was "I wonder what Jane's doing right now".

  • Martin Sheen - In 1986 I was working as an usher in Toronto, helping to put myself through university, when, during a screening of 'Stand by Me', Martin Sheen came up to me and said 'I don't have a ticket, but I'm with those guys' as he pointed to a couple of men in the corner. I was thinking 'this is Martin Sheen! He can go in if he wants...I'm not going to stop him!' So I said, 'Go ahead, Mr Sheen, I'm a big fan of yours' and he flashed me a smile and went on through. It was during this time that I noticed a scent of scotch on his breath. I figured 'this is Martin Sheen, if he wants to knock back a couple of drinks, so be it!'

  • George Jones - In the early '80s I worked for a radio station in Greenville, SC. We were having a "Family Reunion" Corcert at an outdoor venue. Then came the rains, tornado warnings to be exact. There was so much of his equiptment on stage we all (DJs) had to carry it to his trucks. We we're up to our knees in mud laughing about some jokes we we're telling to each other...then we heard a new voice I turned around and behind me with the handles of the equipment in his hands was George up to HIS knees in the mud. He was just like us, nothing was beneath him. Thanks George !!

  • Jonathan Harris - I met the famous "Dr. Smith" at a sci-fi rally in Cleveland early 2001. I had him autograph a picture to my name and he actually said my name in that "scheming" voice along with..."What an interesting name". Too cool.

  • Michael Learned - I went to a play in Jacksonville, Florida with my friend and his new girlfriend. The play was "Love Letters", starring Michael Learned (mother on "The Waltons") and Gavin McCloud ("Love Boat"). My friend's girlfriend claimed to know Michael Learned and said she could get us backstage and also dinner with her. I didn't believe it because she always claimed to know a lot of celebrities. Well we did go backstage and did go to dinner with her. What a nice lady and really down-to-earth. PS: We just attended another play in Tampa, December 2006 ("On Golden Pond") and had dinner with her again. Once again a superb individual.

  • Larry David - I am a caricature artist and was drawing at an event in a suburb near Chicago, around March 2003 when a man and woman sat down before me. I asked the man what he was famous for. He looked down and kind of hesitantly said he was "Larry David", then explained, when he saw my puzzled look, that he was the writer/producer of "Seinfeld" and had a new program out called "Curb Your Enthusiasm." I drew Larry and the woman and titled it, "A caricature about nothing." When I got home, I looked up Larry David on the Internet, just to see if this guy was telling the truth. The balding man I drew had a completely buzz cut hair style and an oddly bent nose, glasses, but not the bushy white hair I saw of the man known as Larry David. I was uncertain. Some time down the road, I checked out a video of CYE and in one episode Larry was wearing a cap, his bushy hair tucked up inside it. He turned his head and there was the unmistakable nose. It was confirmed. I drew Larry David!

  • Robert Kennedy - When Robert Kennedy was running for the presidency, my uncle, Angelo Geocaris, was one of his inner circle in Chicago for a dinner honoring Kennedy which was themed, "Excellence in Politics". I attended and afterward walked up to the stage where Bobby was alone, gathering some papers. I wanted to get his autograph. When he saw me walking straight up to him, he blanched and looked very frightened. I was surprised and said, "No, Mr. Kennedy, I am Angelo Geocaris' nephew. I just want your autograph," which I got and still have on the program. The surprising thing is that a very short time later he was murdered by Sirhan Sirhan right after a similar event. I am a dark-complected Greek-American and have often been taken for a Middle Easterner. I wondered if Kennedy saw me and had a premonition!
