So, as you all know, I love me some Mary Louise Parker… LOVE HER!
Weeds is one of my all time favorite shows, and she’s so nice! Swoon. Sigh… So, because I was in a Mary Louise Parker mood and honestly when are we all NOT in a Mary Louise Parker mood? I don’t think it’s possible. I thought I would showcase the Weeds, Fried Green Tomatoes, Boys on the Side, Angels in America actress for Today’s Throwback Thurs.
Also, with The Dark Tower opening this weekend, Idris Elba… Another awesome Fav!
Check it out below!
Happy Mary Louise Parker week!
I know I’m a tad crazy, but when Mary Louise Parker is in town it’s definitely Mary Louise Parker week. As you all know, I love me Mary Louise Parker, Weeds, Angels in America, Boys on the Side, Fried Green Tomatoes… the list goes on and on and on….
So, when I heard that Mary Louise Parker was going to be doing a talk show to promote Red 2 and R.I.P.D., I knew I had to be there.
When I arrived there were about 15 people already lined up. Also on the show today is Idris Elba from Prometheus and Thor. He was great in Rock-N-Rolla and I’m looking forward to Pacific Rim.
4:31 p.m. – I’m here and chilling out. Jack just arrived and we’re hanging out in the sun. Oh, farmer tan, my old friend. It’s all good.
4:42 p.m. – The Other Mike is here as well. We’re all just relaxing. I could go on and on about all the stuff I have for Mary Louise Parker but really… It’ll never end. There will always be another magazine cover another poster, you know… There are some people I really like that I collect stuff for. What can I say?
5:09 p.m. – It looks like something is happening… Oh, it’s Idris Elba. He’s here and there’s not even a barricade set up!
We all yell for him and he comes right on over.
Such a nice guy. I have two Prometheus mini posters for Idris. One regular mini poster and one lenticular mini poster as well.
5:11 p.m. – Idris goes down the line signing and taking photos. So nice.
He signs both posters for me and loved seeing the lenticular mini poster.
I have to tell you, the lenticular poster is so cool. Then I managed to snag a really quick photo with Idris before he continued signing.
5:19 p.m. – And now we wait for Mary Louise Parker. I’m so excited! Nancy Botwin!
5:34 p.m. – Oh and there she is!
Mary is here and waves at us and looks like she’s going to come over but then gets a phone call. She waits for a second and talks and then waves at us, like she will come over after.
5:45 p.m. – Personally, I would rather it not be rushed so I’m fine with it.
5:52 p.m. – Pinky just arrived and I’m talking to her for a hot second. She was very nice and says she will get my Weeds season 3/Californication season 1 press kit signed for me. God bless Pinky. That was very nice of her, she’s a grapher even though she’s in denial about it.
6:01 p.m. – thankfully, it’s much much cooler now, the set has set, and it’s much more relaxed. I like it lined up like this. It’s so much better.
6:14 p.m. – I’m getting really really hungry. Damn…
6:22 p.m. – Jack brought a couple blu-ray covers with him.. He didn’t bring the bag of stuff that I have. LOL… What can I say. I am trying to narrow down what I want signed. I’m thinking of going with the two lithographs I have. I believe that they were taken by Marc Seliger, I’m not 100% sure don’t quote me. And I have a standee that only needs Mary to finish it.
6:39 p.m. – It’s getting to be time! Everyone is making fun of me that I’m going to totally freak out… It’s not going to happen. I’m going to keep it cool.
6:45 p.m. – Suddenly, as if without warning, Jack looks over and yells “Mary” no one was paying attention and Mary Louise Parker was leaving and coming right on over.
Her hair blowing in the wind, and looking amazing! AMAZING! She is so sweet. Security takes her to the end of the line and as she walks by, Mary Louise Parker says hi to everyone.
Then, one by one she greets everyone and signs.
Pinky got my press kit signed and gets a photo with Mary.
Can I tell you how nice she is. It’s just so kind of her.
Jack has Mary signed his two blu-ray covers and mentions he loved her in Angels in America.
She is genuinely thankful and even personalizes one of his blu-ray covers. Mary then signs my lithograph by Mark Seliger and my Weeds standee.
I talked to Mary about Weeds and how much of a fan I am. I also mention her performance of Hedda Gabler at the Roundabout Theater Co. I’m sure I babbled… I’m positive I babbled. Yep, I babbled. But it was a good babble!
Then Mary was happy to sign the other lithograph as well. So nice!
I love it when someone you’re a huge fan of turns out to be so awesome!
What a great day!
Thanks again to Jack for actually spotting Mary out of the thirty people looking for her. LOL…
Until next time kids…
