How can you not love two acting legends like Sam Elliott and Lily Tomlin? Both are legends and both have done such an impressive amount of work.
There was a q and a for the film Grandma starring Lily Tomlin and Sam Elliott and I knew I had to go. I’ve never met Sam Elliott and I’ve always been a big fan, and I love me some Lily Tomlin!
Billy, Scotty and I headed down and shockingly there was only one other person there. Nice!
Billy was getting into the spirit of things.
Hey, he’s from Michigan what do you expect?
The first person to arrive was Lily Tomlin.
Can I tell you how nice Lily is? The most cordial and kind woman. She was happy to come over, signed everything we had and did pictures. So sweet. She loved Scotty’s poster and was joking with Billy.
Then a few minutes later Sam Elliott arrived. He pulled up in front of us and we asked him to to sign and he didn’t say anything, and so we asked again and he came over. He was exactly how you would expect Sam Elliott to be. He was gruff and funny.
I had my Tombstone mini poster that Scotty helped me with and also my Big Lebowski poster as well.
I said, I have one more, and Sam Elliott said, “You guys always have one more!” I said, that’s it, I only have two and he and I both laughed. It doesn’t sound funny when I write it, but trust me it was funny.
He posed for pictures with all of us and then said goodbye. Such a nice man. And I was really excited because I’ve never met Sam and he’s just a cool cat.
And that, as we say is that!
Until next time kids…
