December was busy for me with a two days on the press junket for Valkyrie.
Nothing crazy like the Iron Man press junket happened.
But I did have a weird experience with Tom Cruise as he left for the day. The crew was all hanging around after a long day of shooting and Tom Cruise came from his room and walked to the elevator. But on the way, I guess he felt like he needed to recognize the crew. He acted really strange. Instead of just saying a general, “Thanks!” to the whole hallway of crew, he awkwardly picked certain crew members out of the crowd to shake hands with and introduce himself. It seemed like he was trying too hard to be a normal guy. Anyway, all the actors seemed to really like him.
Later in December I got to do a PSA with Matthew Modine, who was much more normal than Tom Cruise. (But that isn’t saying much.)
I’ll keep you updated on my Hollywood lifestyle. 🙂
I hope to see you all in 2009!
