To anyone who reads my blog (thank you loyal readers!) they know that The Wire is my all-time favorite show so even if I just got Michael's autograph I would of been happy but I did need Steve Buscemi on my all-time favorite movie Pulp Fiction, as well.
The first to show up was creator Terrence Winter and he came over and signed and I added him to my cast shot.
I now have Terrence Winter, Michael Pitt, Paul Sparks, Michael Shannon, Jack Huston, Martin Scorsese, Michael Kenneth Williams, Christopher Mcdonald, Vincent Piazza, Molly Parker and Mark Povinelli on this.
When it comes to graphing one of the craziest moments is when more than one celebrity is signing at the same time so of course this event really starts rolling when not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 celebrities show up at the same time and come over to sign! To say it was chaotic is like saying if you stood inside a tornado it would be breezy! Michael Pitt, Michael Kenneth Williams, Kelly MacDonald and Steve Buscemi all arrive at the same and all hell breaks loose! To make matters worse, I then see Vincent Piazza, Michael Shannon and Michael Stuhlbarg signing as well!
However, I am here mainly for MKW so I go to his spot and get all my photos signed, get him to write Omar RIP on one and get a photo op with him! This alone made me happy but I didn't have alot of time to gloat as I immediately had to grab photos for the next celeb.
I grabbed my photos for Buscemi and ran to his spot and got him to sign my Pulp Fiction and while he was signing (for about a total of ten seconds!) he tells everyone don't worry I will do the whole line and a second later hands the pen back and doesn't sign anymore the rest of the night.
I then grabbed my Michael Shannon photos ( I forgot that Kelly was signing who is someone I wanted real bad but luckily for me she signed the most) and I got Michael to sign all 4 of my photos and he even wrote "Zod" on one of them. Once again Michael is a great signer (and I really appreciate that he gives full signatures) and I need to make room for him on my best signers list for this year.
I finally get around to going for Kelly and since she is racking I am able to get her to sign multiple photos. I would of loved a photo op with her but it was just too crazy.
I already had Ewan McGregor on this.
Next up for me is Vincent Piazza and I had to move quick as he didn't sign for long but I did get him on all 3 photos I had for him (one being the cast shot).
Next up is Michael Stuhlbarg and it doesn't go well for me. He comes over, doesn't sign much, stays in one spot and I can't get close enough to him so I don't get his autograph. I got photos of him signing but that is it!
I have had a bad experience with Michael Pitt in the past so I honestly didn't expect him to sign but he shocks me and comes over and signs and I got him on all my photos.
As I am going through my photos I hear someone yell for Gretchen Mol so I grab my photos of her and run to the beginning of the line and get seriously lucky. For whatever reason, at almost every event, a publicist or security guard will focus on one person and try to prevent them from getting multiples signed while meantime almost every other person is racking that celeb! Well, it happened again. I hear her publicist trying to prevent someone and I just keep getting all my photos signed and got every last one done!
