I will admit it… I’m a huge fan of Matthew Broderick. I loved his work back in the day, Ferris Bueller, Project X, Wargames, Biloxi Blues and his more recents classic Election was brilliant!
Problem is… Matthew is rarely in Los Angeles! Grumble… Scotty however was in the city that never sleeps and met Matthew Broderick before his play Nice Work If You Can Get It! Gosh, I wish there was more theatre in Los Angeles! Ah well…
Anyway, check out Scotty’s encounter with Ferris… I mean Matthew Broderick after the jump!
OH YEAH! Chic-Chicachaaaa…. I Met Ferris Bueller in New York!
July 18, 2012
On my recent trip to New York, I was able to have a great one-on-one encounter with Matthew Broderick before he made his way into the theater where he is currently starring in “Nice Work If You Can Get It.”
I had heard he was nice about signing, so I made my way to the theater. I went armed with my Sharpies and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and “Ladyhawke” Laserdics. I had two other things for Matthew to sign, but did not want to be greedy.
I waited for about 20 minutes and I saw Matthew making his way down the street toward the stage door. I asked him if he wouldn’t mind signing a couple of autographs for me. He kindly obliged and wished me a good day. I would have loved to taken a picture with him, but some of the autograph collectors in New York said that he usually turned down photos.
I did not want to ruin the moment, so I took my Laserdiscs and returned to my hotel room happy. Thank you Matthew!
