Steven Seagal and Zooey Deschanel in Hollywood on Jimmy Kimmel! Autographs! Photos!

I actually like Steven Seagal and still don't get the fascination with Zooey (though I did like her in 500 Days of Summer) and I HATE doing the Kimmel show now with people who show up at 10AM to wait for Channing Tatum but figured why not and they both signed so it was worth it.

The Killing Premiere w Billy Campbell, Joel Kinnaman, Jamie Anne Allman and MORE! Autographs! Photos! Videos!

Recently I started watching this show and really liked it so I thought I would go to the 2nd season premiere and  hopefully as a bonus some of the talent from other AMC shows would make an appearance but as Mick Jagger once said, "You can't always get what you want."

I worked on 2 8x10 cast shots.

I got Billy Campbell, Brent Sexton, Jamie Anne Allman, Tom Butler, Brandon Jay Maclaren, Veena Sud, Liam James, Joel Kinnamon, Eric Ladin and Kristin Lehman on this.

Cast member Jamie Anne Allman is married to True Blood star Marshall Allman so when they showed up I had him sign my True Blood cast shots.

I printed 3 cast shots of which I have a feeling are going to be difficult to complete based on this premiere. Michelle Forbes didn't show up to the premiere, Kristen Lehman is a horrible signer (I didn't get her on this night as she wouldn't do it, I got her at the Mad Men after party and even there she was not cool), Brent Sexton looked like he was forced to sign and Mireille Enos finally signed on the way out of the after party but only after getting in her car and then rolling down.

I still need Kristen, Mireille, and Michelle on this.

I still need Mireille and Michelle on this as well.

 I also got Brent Sexton to sign my 24 cast shot.

Joel Kinnamon was by far the nicest of the cast and signed whatever anyone had and I got him on 5 cast shots and my Dragon Tattoo photo and a dual shot of him and Mireille which I completed.

To give you an idea of how crazy some of these events can be, I go to this premiere hoping for AMC talent and leave being the happiest about getting a random arrival, Sean Hayes. I have 2 cast shots of Will and Grace I have been working on for almost 5 years (!) and he showed up last night and I completed them!!!

Christopher Heyerdahl also showed up and I got a picture with him.

26th Genesis Awards w Jon Bernthal, Tricia Helfer, Kesha, Ian Somerhalder, Moby, UGGIE and MORE! Autographs! Photos! Videos!

This was by far one of the weirdest nights I have had in quite some time. A protester wouldn't leave private property and the police had to be called. Security seemed to disappear at times which led to a circus atmosphere. Drunk people coming out of the venue barely able to walk or speak. A celebrity remembering me from over 2 months ago. So called true fans getting photo ops and then coming over to us and asking who they just got a picture with - which drives me CRAZY! Ian Somerhalder getting really close for a photo op with me! A fun night indeed.

Dawn Olivieri was an early arrival and I didn't know she was going to be there so I just got a picture with her.

Jason Ritter, Owain Yeoman, Wilmer Valderrama, Angela Kinsey, Carrie Ann Inaba, Michael Cooper, Steven Bernheim and Tony Denison were some more celebs who arrived who I didn't have any photos for so I just got pictures with them.

I have to be honest that I didn't know who this guy was (Steven Bernheim) but his girlfriend gave me one of his business cards so I asked him to sign it and he seemed quite thrilled. He even turned around to his girlfriend and told her he couldn't believe I had one of his business cards!

This was one of the highlights of my night as I got a photo op with UGGIE from The Artist!

Michael Vartan of Alias showed up and I was thankful to finally add someone else to my Alias cast shots! I also got him to sign my Columbiana photo.

Several times on my blog I have mentioned that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is one of the coolest celebrities I have ever met but Jon Bernthal is one of the coolest people I have ever met! I mentioned to him that he did a shout out to my wife in a video a couple months before and he remembered and then he did another shout out to her in a video for me last night! He signed everything everyone had. He took pictures with everyone. He talked to everyone like they were his best friend. Last year I named him my best signer of 2011 and apparently he isn't ready to give up that crown!

Tricia Helfer, someone who I dont see alot, signed on the way in and way out which enabled me to get 7 signed by her.

I usually don't like printing photos for musicians as I don't have much luck with them but a friend of mine who went with me said he thought that Colbie Caillat looked like someone who would be nice and of course she wasn't! She signed one each and acted like she was doing it against her will and then after she signed kept remarking that she couldn't wait to see them on eBay.

Rose McGowan was another who signed on the way in and way out and I got all 6 photos signed and I got a picture with her.

Ian Somerhalder signed on the way in and I got both done so on the way out I thought I would try for a picture with him as he doesn't usually like to do photo ops but when I asked him he ran right over and leaned his head against mine for the photo!

Moby showed up and I asked him to draw a sketch for me which he kindly did and I told him that I loved "One of These Mornings," especially the way it was used in Miami Vice and then he said Michael Mann was a genius to which I agreed.

Over 2 and a half months ago I met Fiona Gubelmann in Pasadena. On this night, after she came out of the event she walked up to me and said, " Didn't I meet you in Pasadena?" Yes you did and what a memory! It completely shocked me that she remembered me and she was just as cool this night as she was then.

Kristin Bauer of True Blood showed up and I got her on my cast piece and on 3 photos.

Ke$ha was another musician who showed up and she signed one each on the way in and was nicer than I expected as she also did a few photo ops with fans.

Constance Marie, from the George Lopez show, arrived and signed all my photos.

Pauley Perrette was on my list for the best signers of last year and she will be on it again this year. She signed all of my photos for me, all 12!, and talked to us the whole time and took photos with everyone who asked. She is truly a great signer.

Cloris Leachman came out last, around midnight!, and signed both of my photos for me.

A really good night, crazy at times, and the only person who didn't sign the whole night was Sophia Bush.
