#SummerStreetMeets 4 HUGE wants!! Bonus HVFF from JUNE

Post by lanza218 » November 8th, 2019, 2:19 am

Yes Yes, it has been awhile, so i will combine some of my summer meets into one report! Without wasting too much time, lets get right to it.

Good friend Greg Izzi gave me a tip on Helen Hunt, who is hardly in NYC area and not very nice. But he got her the night before so I figured i would try. Of course the same people who got photos and autos the night before came up and brought friends.....well Helen was as accommodating as could be with autos but said no pics...lovely...she starts doing them but again people who got her the night before get...i run up to her and she says take it while walking....could have been worse, could have been better, but got the shot.

A White Whale of mine for years has been Jacob Benjamin "Jake" Gyllenhaal literally it is either wrong night or wrong place wrong time or he denies or skips me for YEARS. Tried again and thankfully righted the wrong Was too nervous to have Greg take my pic, as handlers screamed no flash and Jake wasnt really looking and skipping people. Hell, even got an auto out of it.

Onto last week, where we begin the night with me at the right spot and greg misreading the address and at the wrong spot- i inform him where to go and get a call- he sees me a block away and informs me to hurry over as he sees a BIG random- Gerard Butler another huge want, who I missed the few times I tried for him. He was on his bike chatting with a friend so waited for that to finish, as soon as he did he gets a call....I hand greg my phone ask for a pic, he puts the woman on hold and bam, i get the shot! and a worst pic nominaion!

Bonus Report! Attended HVFF for only 2 names so lets include that here- con was about 20 min away- first name Donal Logue say it with me, a huge want of mine since Grounded for Life aired. Line was a long just because he was so nice to everyone, even came over to the line to shake our hands and apologize- he had to break for a panel, but made sure the entire line was take care of, small chit chat, and got the op

Next only wanted another, yep, you guessed it, BIG WANT in Rick Gonzalez Spanish from old School- he had no one in line but of course, life stories from the 2 in front of me, got up to him, he was expecting an Arrow question but hit him with Old School and he was thrilled, said he didn't really hang out with the main guys but the other characters and him bonded a lot. Took 2 pics and was on my way
