The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story is premiering soon and I keep hearing how good it is. They had a small premiere in Westwood for the series and John Travolta was scheduled to show.
Now, John is usually really nice, I just haven’t seen him out much lately. Scotty and I both decided to check it out and when we got there… It wasn’t packed. In fact, I think there was only like 20 people waiting. XXX Will was there and a few other usual suspects but not many others.
We got a decent spot and waited.
It was pretty fast and arrivals started. The first person to show up was Cuba Gooding Jr. I didn’t have anything, but Scotty had a Boyz N The Hood poster for him. He was really nice and came running over before anyone even called him.
He signed for the entire line and was really cool.
The next arrival was Courtney B. Vance. He was also nice enough to come over and sign. I didn’t have anything for him but he was very cool. Angela Bassett wasn’t with him but he said that she was coming later.
Bruce Greenwood was also here and came running over to sign a few.
Sarah Paulson dropped and she came over really quick. I love Sarah, she’s not only an amazing actress but super nice. She signed a couple American Horror Story photos for me.
Next David Schwimmer showed up. I was surprised because I was told he wasn’t coming. Doh! He signed for pretty much everyone, I wish I was better prepared, I know a few friends needed him. Sadness.
Then Angela Bassett arrived and she just went to the carpet.
Selma Blair dropped and signed on the opposite end. Doh!
Then John Travolta and Kelly Preston dropped.
Both were super nice and signed for the entire line.
John was just over the top cool. He signed my Grease mini poster, and then my Saturday Night Fever mini poster as well. Then he signed my Urban Cowboy poster. I was like, Damn, I wish I had more!
Kelly Preston was behind John and signed for Scotty and I. We both totally geeked out on her. We had Spacecamp and A View From The Top. Sadly Kelly smeared her signature on the A View From The Top poster. She went back because she said, ‘I have to put a heart on the top’ and then she smeared it. Doh!
We went to the other side of the carpet and watch people go in. John Travolta signed AGAIN, I was able to get Selma Blair on my Legally Blonde poster and to top it off I got Connie Britton on my Friday Night Lights poster! I was so excited because I love that show!
Overall, it was a really successful night! I was pretty stoked!
Until next time kids…
