His greatest work.

That does not look like Ghost Dog.

Ghost Dog killed all of Steve Martin's family in the film. That's what I'm going with. (He was on an episode of the Simpsons one time.)

When Jim Jarmusch talked with Lisa he said at Stranger than Paradise and Down by Law are also about social misfits experiencing the dark side of the American dream at he mentioned at he doing it again in his next film, Cheaper by the Dozen 3. Lisa said then at that doesn't sound like his kind of movie. Jarmusch show her then a poster of the movie

I feel like this feels like the right thread to say I'm being dragged by the girlfriend and her brother to go see Pauly Shore do standup at the Brea Improv tonight. 

I have seen zero of his stand-up, but I'm pretty sure I can imagine.

Yeah, his stand-up gimmick is pretty annoying, but I thought we were talking about people who were obnoxious in real life.

But this came up in a Google Search, so it looks like you posted this in the correct thread.

This thread makes me happy I have met basically no celebrities at all, and the only one I've spoken to more than a few times (Lera Lynn, who appeared on True Detective S2 and did a lot of the soundtrack) was someone I knew nearly a decade ago, long before she was remotely famous. She's pretty awesome.

Saw Shore open for Sam Kinison in Oct. '90. I laughed.

Pretty cool. Her dreamy lounge singing reminded me a lot of Twin Peaks. She was by far my favourite part of that disappointing second season.

I forgot one. Fred Talbot, the weatherman from This Morning (he's in jail now, disgraced and all that) told me to Fuck Off once. Basically, when I was doing my A-Levels (polite version*) we were going on a trip to an Art Gallery in Albert Dock, Liverpool (where the floating weathermap was). One of the lads in the group started talking about how we had to go out and watch while he was doing the weather, so being the obnoxious 19 year old that I was, I started going off on how stupid it was an nobody liked him. And then this voice from the balcony shouts "Oi, you with the long hair!", so I look round, and then there's Fred Talbot with a fag in his mouth, flicking the V's at me and shouting Fuck Off. It was hilarious.

* Private joke, but look on Urban dictionary for the alternate meaning.

I work on sets for movies and tv shows, so I've been interacting with a lot of celebs lately. Kyle Chandler is a total sweetheart. Took time to thank all the "below the line" folks like me individually, not in a condescending or self-aggrandizing way, but in the way of a dude who is happy to be where he is. Could not have been cooler. John Cena was awesome, too. I was wearing one of my "Krav Maga" training shirts and he walked up to me and asked why a man my size needed Krav Maga. We talked for 20 minutes. Just the nicest guy in the world. Met AJ Styles at a Dicks Sporting Goods in Buford, GA. He was there with his family, but we were looking at the same item, so I quietly told him I was a fan of his work and didn't want to make a scene. He thanked me for being quiet and shook my hand. We talked for a minute. Maybe the most gracious dude I've ever met. Ryan Gosling was cool but "out there". John C. McGinley was very nice, but quiet. Jennifer Lawrence was nice, but seemed to be waiting for people to make a bigger deal of her being on set. Lucy Hale sat next to me at catering on a pilot we shot last year, and was very sweet and unassuming. I even had a good encounter with Vanessa Williams after seeing her fire two other people that day. I had to install a table I'd built for a set piece on a show, and she was standing exactly where i needed to work. I was polite and quiet, and she gave me a big smile and said to do whatever i needed. It was mildly terrifying and slightly arousing all at the same time. I also watched the door at a tavern in Buckhead in Atlanta several years back, and met several current and former Braves. Freddie Freeman is a human golden retriever. He's just the sweetest guy in the world. Dan Uggla was nice but dumber than a bag of hammers. I'd heard horror stories about Chipper Jones, but guy was never anything but gracious and accommodating to our staff. He would sign autographs and take pictures, he just asked that we go to the VIP room or somewhere else out of public eye to do it. Signed a cap, several cards, and a few Starting Lineup figures I had in the box. He even chuckled when he saw the figures. Just a really nice guy who I think bristles at too much attention. Took time to make small talk with our servers and always overtipped. Jeff Foxworthy is a nice guy, but I think is very averse to public attention. Who else? I waited on Katt Williams at another restaurant in Atlanta. Guy came in with 3 companions. Spent 640 dollars at lunch. Gave me 10 Benjamins and told me to keep the rest. He's even shorter than you'd imagine. When I lived in Peachtree City I became acquaintances with Katherine Heigl due to seeing her at the gym every day of her shoot and telling her about the best places to "get in trouble" in our small town. She's very striking in person. Another one I'd heard bad things about that defied my expectations. She signed a couple items for me. Super sweet.

 

Oh, holy shit, I almost forgot the best one. The things they say about Shia LeBoeuf are true. Kid is fucking nuts. He was shooting LAWLESS in Senoia, and would come into our dive bar in peachtree city at night. There's a very nice resort hotel all the actors stay at when filming in the area, and that bar is less than a mile from there. My friend's wife waits tables at this bar, and we'd go up there and shoot pool and see if any celebrities were coming in. Well, TheBeef is drunk and talking shit to anyone within earshot about how much our town sucks and how he could buy and sell the whole place if he wanted to. There were several people out from LA on the production there that night, and they all looked embarrassed. Finally he grabbed my buddies wife by the ass and made a lewd comment. My buddy and two of our other friends jumped into action. They're all around 5'8 and less than 170, so they were held back by security. I looked to intervene and felt an iron grip on my shirt at the same time I heard a low voice with an accent say "let it go, mate." The owner of this voice raised his head to where I could see under his hat brim and TOM fucking HARDY is the owner of the iron grip and low voice. He was far cooler than he could've been about the whole thing, and ended up paying our tab. He even stood around shooting the shit and took a few shots at the pool table.  Tom was maybe the nicest and most unassuming celebrity I've ever been around. TheBeef was escorted out and ended up getting a DUI later that week. My friends still joke about "the night big Andy almost fought Bane." I don't think it's nearly as funny as they do.

My little sister got to meet Shore earlier this year. I want to stress that she was over the moon happy about this and told everyone she knows, with great pride "he told me I have huge boobs." Then she hung out with him at an after party.

That's borderline strange, creepy and/or interesting?

I found it creepy, but since it didn't bother her... *shrug*

Same situation at the show - he basically stopped the show for 5 minutes to hit on the chick in the front row but yea ... she seemed to enjoy it.

I just saw Kevin Smith and Ralph Garmen do their Hollywood Babble On show at the Boulder Theater.  I briefly met both guys before the show and they were both awesome.

I have friends that live out in Burbank now and they see celebrities at random. The guy who played Harvey on Sabrina about a half a dozen times. Ke$ha once doing whatever. Jay Leno drives around like a maniac at random. My friend's acting coach is the old man in the fishing outfit in that TV ad for some insurance company holding a dollar over some woman in a store, so that's amusing. He's made plenty off that.

He is amazing in that ad. 

Important note: He was also in this:

When you've never even heard of the two top listed actors, you know you've hit DTV heaven or hell.

 

ETA:  Wait, the then-15-year-old girl (who had only done an episode each of House and ER) gets billing over both the adult female lead and Corin "Parker Lewis" Nemec?  That makes no sense.
