Raiders Of The Lost Auditions

I snapped this photo in front of my Starbucks. It's directly across from Gower Studios and is always filled with people waiting to be discovered.

On any given day theses various groups of men are talking show business. One day I collected my soy non-fat latte and then headed for the door. A gentleman jumped ahead of me and quickly opened it. I thanked him and he replied, "Gotta take care of all the Screen Actor's Guild people." I asked him how he knew I was in SAG and he said he saw it in my wallet while I was paying. Obsessed much?

See the man with a blue polyester suit and sky blue tie? When I walked past him he was saying, "My distributors in New York are working on back end deals for my 13 films."

I hope they're working on getting him a better hairpiece too.

End of chat.

  3. That man is pure comedy. Don't even have to do much work to make that cat perfectly hilarious. He's a cartoon himself!

  4. So sad. I could understand an absolutely hot babe hanging out thinking someone will see her hotness but...

    these guys need to just find a job/get a life. I wonder if their wife/girlfriend knows that they spend all day sipping coffee. I would kick their ass out!!!

  20. Back in the day Kahuna worked in "the business". He always laughs at people who talks about their film deals. He says most of the time the only film deals those guys know are on their shower doors.

  22. Okay, so that's the L.A. version of our local liars table at Mable's Grab N Go. Except your guys are telling wild tales of Hollywood and my guys are telling tales of cotton farming.

  24. I don't know how I missed reading this post before, but this is brilliant! If I may make a blog request I'd like regular updates on your local Starbuck's RatPack. I miss the sheer insanity of the elderly-but-still-waiting-for their-big-break in Hollywood. More please!

    Hoping this is just the pilot in your Guys at Starbucks series. ; )
