The Way Way Back Movie Premiere Report! Toni Collette! Allison Janney! Jim Rash! And Disses From Steve Carell & AnnaSophia Robb! Autographs! And More!

It’s funny sometimes with all the loud crashing giant summer blockbusters, it does seem odd that a small film like The Way Way Back can rise above everything. When I heard that there was a small premiere for the film here in Los Angeles, I told Scotty we had to go for one reason and one reason only… Toni Collette.

I have been a huge Toni Collette fan ever since I saw Muriel’s Wedding with my friend Vanessa back in the day. I love her. The United States of Tara, Fright Night, The Sixth Sense, Little Miss Sunshine, Etc.. It’s amazing how many amazing films she was in!

So, Scotty and I, along with Billy Beer and DVD Dave headed to the cold barren streets of Downtown Los Angeles. Also in The Way Way Back is Steve Carell, Allison Janney, AnnaSophia Robb, Sam Rockwell, etc…

11:31 a.m – This is an early premiere and there was some debate as to when we should arrive. I just said, hell, I’m going to go first since everyone always saves me a spot. It’s the least I can do.

11:42 a.m. – I parked and just arrived as Scotty walked up. I’m such a slow driver. I don’t know how Scotty made it here before me. Ah well…

11:54 a.m. – I told Scotty we need signs! LOL… The security is really nice and coming over and chatting with us. They put the barricade up and we got a great spot. Did I mention there are no other fans here? It’s funny, I’m not used to having no one here. It’s strange though, because you just never know. One day you think, no one cares about these people, it’ll be empty and then you show up and there are ninety people!

12:31 p.m. – Scotty finished his sign. Once again he has mastered the ability to make signs. LOL…He’s just so good at it!

1:41 p.m. – It’s so windy. Like, I feel like I’m blowing away it’s so windy.

2:09 p.m. – DVD Dave is sorting his DVD covers.

2:39 p.m. – I brought way way too much stuff as usual… My Muriel’s Wedding mini poster, my Fright Night mini poster, my The United States of Tara seasons 1 and 2 mini posters plus the season 3 presskit, i also have stuff for Steve Carell, AnnaSophia Robb, Allison Janney, Sam Rockwell… Yeah, I got stuff. lol..

3:11 p.m. – Scott has his sign in place and I’m feeling good. I just saw Ryan, which is always awesome and Daryl is here as well. He doesn’t have anything for Toni, so he said he would help me which was super nice of him.

4:09 p.m. – Okay, let’s get the proverbial party started!

4:11 p.m. – People are starting to arrive. It’s always a cluster of randomness. Jim Rash is here and we are calling him over. He looks over and waves but it doesn’t look like he’s going to come over.

4:15 p.m. – Oh wait… Jim Rash is coming over.

He’s signing pretty much anything and everything people have.

4:18 p.m. – Steve Carell just arrived and we are all yelling and yelling and yelling for him.

He wouldn’t even look over at us. Seriously, you can’t even wave. Wow, Steve Carell… Nice.

4:20 p.m. – Allison Janney is here now. We’re yelling for her and she points to the carpet and says she will come over after.

4:31 p.m. – Oh, oh, there she is!

Scotty and I yell and yell for her. Toni is so nice, she just comes walking over!

We keep telling Toni how much we love her. Someone asks her to start at the end and Toni looks over and says, “No… I’m going to start with them!” Love her! She signs for Scotty and then I ask her to sign my Muriel’s Wedding mini poster, “You’re terrible Mike” OMG I’m so stoked.

Very cool. I really think it’s awesome that Allison Janney came over after.

How many times has someone said, “I’ll do it after and then never do!”

And that as we say is that. I have to tell you, even though we didn’t get Steve Carell or AnnaSophia Robb, I’m super happy to get Toni Collette!
Until next time kids…
