So many films, has anyone on this forum made it on the imdb.com, as an actor/actress or producer etc.? I have known too people who were stunt doubles etc. andd made it to the list. One guy i painted with, was the guy Amanda Judd sees on the crowded street in Eye of the Beholder, and another was one of the warriors in the 13th Warrior. Would have loved to have been an extra on 16 Candles!

Sorry, best I can do is my elder brother, who worked on the backstage crew during some of the location shooting for Top Secret (remember the scene with the Nazi war-room wneh they pick up that huge telephone?)

Also, a friend of mine worked with the FX crew on all the Harry Potters.....

I'm not on the IMDB.com, though I appeared as an extra during a street scene in a short-lived TV detective series called "Partners In Crime", which starred Loni Anderson and Lynda Carter. It aired on the NBC-TV network for one year in 1984. The exterior scenes was shot in San Francisco.

Since I was only an extra, I was unbilled in the credits.

Hmmm....perhaps I should add myself on the IMDB cast list? [Smile]

In addition, my sister once dated a guy who did some special effects work on the TV show "Twin Peaks". He was also the screenwriter for a 1993 movie called "Just One Of The Girls", which was alternatively known as "Anything for Love". That one starred Corey Haim, Nicole Eggert, and Cameron Bancroft. A then-unknown Alanis Morissette sings a few songs in it, but appears unbilled in the credits.

My whole hometown was made in to the movie Groundhog Day, but it wasn't even filmed in my hometown..so I didn't get in it, but I lived it..hehehe. My friend is a stand up comedian and he has meet every celebrity you want to know, because he books all the comedians for the David Lettermen Show,and warms up the audience, and he has been a guest comedian on there 8 times, he also has been in a bunch of B-movies like..Stuck on You, Burnsey's Last Call,and Drop Dead Rock-with Adam Ant and Debbie Harry. I was his travel agent, and then I became the travel agent to 2 of his friends, when they came to the local college near me, for a show, and I meet them, that was on my 21st birthday. The one guy-is now the executive producer of Everybody Loves Raymond, his name is Lew Schneider, and the other guy-Jeff Garlin, was just in Daddy Day Care with Eddie Murphy, and has been in a video with Sheryl Crow and been a regular on Mad About You. I went to New York City in 1989 and went to Caroline's, with my friend-Eddie, and I got to Meet John Mendosa and I talked to Colin Quinn on the telephone. My friend is very good friends with Dennis Leary, and just did a comedy show for a benefit with Dennis. He asked me to come to New York several times, and I could get to meet David Letterman, but I am not planning on going there any time soon. My Aunt's family had a Walt Disney movie made about their life, called the Snowball Express- Johnny Whitaker plays my uncle in the movie. They live near Michael J. Fox, and James Burrows- who is the producer of Cheers and Fraiser. My Aunt meet Bruce Willis. I meet Lyle Alzando-sp? in Hawaii- I think he died years ago, there were a bunch of professional football players staying at the hotel I was at. I meet Nancy Culp, who played Jane Hathaway on the Beverly Hillbillies, I was her travel agent too, she is from my state. A friend of mine has meet Rick Springfield, and danced on stage with Michael Damian. I could never be in a movie-I have no desire to..I helped make a commercial for a local tv station for a charity group once, and I hated doing that. My name was just in a national magazine-that's about it for fame for me.

My high school art teacher and friend's cousin directed the movie Krippendorf's Tribe with Richard Dreyfus and Jenna Elfman, and he was the producer of The Larry Sanders Show on HBO with Gary Shandling, and when he won an Emmy for that show, my old art teacher/friend went with him to the Emmy's, and she is in the clips when he accepted the emmy, they did a pan to her in the audience. Also, my friend who's the comedian has been to the Emmy's. He has meet everyone from Cindy Crawford,Farrah Fawcett, to he did a show in NYC, prior to an Aretha Franklin concert in front of 10,000 people. He knows Rosie O'Donnell, Louie Anderson, Eddie Murphy, Roseanne, Andrew Dice Clay-he opened for all of them, and once at a club he called me on the phone, and I could hear Andrew Dice Clay doing his comedy routine in the background-which was so cool-cause his voice is unmistakable.

Not in any films i'm afraid the best i can do is I was an extra in Shine on Harvey Moon a series that was pretty big over here in the uk, It was filmed on my Base at the time and they needed Airman marching in the background so i got to be one of them, I was also in Jim Davidson Basra bound show that was shown earlier this year and i've been on Sky news and CNN a few times when the war was on. nothing good (apart from Jim Davidson of course) but it is a claim to fame. Oh Yes my best mate was on Police camera Action Being arrested for Dangerous driving. [Wink]

I was an extra in the independent film "In the Company of Men". It was directed by Neil LaBute and won some awards at the Sundance Film Festival. I got screen credit and am now immortalized on the imdb. [Smile] I'm listed under my maiden name. It's pretty cool to see me on there. I really wish I could be an actress so it's nice to think that imdb says I'm one! [Smile]

I was in a movie called Escape that they was filming in North Carolina, in the city that I lived in for a couple of years or so when I was real little.

It starred Kim Richards who is most known for her role as Tia in Disney big hits "Escape from Witch Mountain, and Return from Witch Mountain"

Also starred soap star Kin Shriner, Judson Earney Scott

My mother got autographs from Kim for me and her, took her picture, and Kins, and autograph of him. I just got Kim's since I loved watching her in movies.

I don't know about the people out there, but my family tried many times to find the movie to watch since none of us ever seen it. A couple of years or so ago I found the movie at a local used movie store. Now it is easy to find it on the net, and most times cheap.

Also my cousin Aaron had a few scenes in Major League Back to the Minors.

Karl, that's cool you got to work with Kim Richards. Loved her in Meatballs 2 and Tuff Turf. Is she as pretty in person as on screen?

I remember Kim Richards on the TV show "Nanny & the Professor", from the early 70's.

To anyone interested, try this site:

Kim is the aunt of Paris Hilton!

I love Kim Richards too, I belong to her fan club on Yahoo Groups, nobody ever writes on those-I wish they did.

I loved the show Hello Larry, I was a huge fan of Donna Wilkes too, and she just totally disappeared too.

We just bought Return to Witch Mountain-with Kim. I loved it. Kylie Richards her little sister is in one of my favorite Disney movies... The Watcher in the Woods.

I can't believe she's related to Paris Hilton. I was reading a magazine article yesterday about Paris's new show, with Lionel Ritchie's daughter, and they go shopping at Wal-Mart-woo, yippee, who doesn't, what else is there? They have drove every other buisness out of buisness. But, geez I am glad she thinks of that as being something to make a show about, because it is so beneath her or why else would it matter?

Paris is only 22 years old, and pretty hard to like. There is a video tape out there with the ex husband of Shannen Dougherty..it's like who cares, do you feel sorry for her, if she's embarrassed? Like she has no diginity anyway.

A friend of our family's worked on the set of the movie..."I am the Cheese" with Robert Wagner and Robert McNaughton-who was the older brother in E.T. She has his t-shirt he gave her. My Aunt has seen alot of movies being made in Vermont, one was Ghost Story, which is a really great scary movie..has anyone else seen it?? And they just filmed the movie What Lies Beneath, near her, a few years ago, in Burlington Vermont, and there is one scene that took place in Middlebury, VT, where my cousins were in private school there then. They have seen alot of famous people walking the streets in Vermont. Sean Connery was one. Also, they got to meet Bruce Wills at Planet Hollywood in New York City, he came in there to eat, and went around and shook hands with everyone, and they got their picture taken with him, and an autograph. They said he looks alot smaller in person! Hehehe.

My dad's best friend for the past 40 years has done about 8 B horror movies by Troma and other companies. He was the star in several of them. Three of his films are listed on imdb.com under Patrick Butler. My favorite is FROSTBITER!!! Can go wrong with a movie with a song about baked beans and chili by Iggy Pop's band!!! LOL

Well it's kinda pathetic what my "claim" to fame was... I was on the Sunday Morning Mass for the shut ~in's. It was a church service filmed for people who couldn't leave the house. I carried up the communion and sang some songs.

I was also interviewed at the "Red Wing Parade" by the local new stations when the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup in 1997.

And I was on a Radio show in Duluth Minn as a guest speaker and interview by their local news..

I also did voice overs for a local jewelry store's radio commericals...

It's a very little known fact that I was actually the original 5th Ghostbuster, but they cut me out because they said the beard look wasn't cool enough [Frown]

This is an incredibly rare still from before I was cut out, that's me, 2nd in on the right:
