I'm really Meryl Streep.
You didn't know it 'cause, well, I'm the greatest f*cking actress on the planet.

I helped Harrison Ford once and didn't even realize it was him until my coworker mentioned it to me. I also helped Tom Hanks. Al Pacino (nice guy gave people his autograph) saw him twice, it looked like he had a rough night. Chris O'Donell, Hally Berry, Wesley Snipes (asshole), Arnold (before and after he became the governator) and his wife, Cuba Gooding (real nice guy), Jamie Lee Curtis (total bitch!).

At last years JoeCon I had the pleasure of meeting and have a beer with Ron Rudat. Very cool guy. His room was a couple down from mine. My 8 year old son and I were walking out at the same time as Ron and some of his family came out of their room. He was very cool to my son and signed his convention name tag.

Met a few DOCTOR WHO (old version) cast members at conventions (Sylvester McCoy, Nicholas Courtney, Frazer Hines, Sophie Aldred), BLAKE'S 7 stars (Paul Darrow, Micheal Keating) but I guess most people won't have heard of them.
Slightly more famous (maybe) were a lot of British comedy stalwarts at a DAD'S ARMY 'Blue Plaque' unveiling (Liz Fraser, Spike Milligan, Norman Wisdom, Ian Lavender, Andrew Sachs).

I know cj and Stevie from Drowning Pool, Worked with Eric from Bowling for Soup, Used to party a lot with Dimebag RIP,Vinnie Paul and Monster RIP. Darrell and Vinnie's mom lived two blocks from where I used to bar tend and would get Bloody Mary Shots at 11 am. LOL
At a Scifi convention I had a Cigarette with Jason Carter (Who played Marcus Cole on Babylon 5. Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker happen to just be out there hanging out away from the crowd. Was kinda cool to just sit and talk to them. Like mentioned above.. I treated them like normal people and didn't think anything of it.
Growing up in Texas specifically the DFW area.. I have met just about every old school wrestler there is.. When I was younger one of our neighbors would have the wrestlers over after the event was over.. so I got to know quiet a few of them on real first name basis.
I also used to fight in the UFA (United fighting Alliance) It was set up for people who were training to join the UFC. Founded by Anthony Anderson from UFC 1 & 3, Don Fry, Dan Severn and Ken Shamrock. Most of our training was at the Shamrocks Lions Den here in Dallas. So I have met and hung out with several of those guys..including other not listed above.
I went to school with Amy Ackers, Her son Jackson James Carpinello was born on my birthday 2005. How awesome is that. She was an excellent dancer, quiet and somewhat recluse... who would have ever thought she would have blossomed into the girl who played Fred on Angel. LOL
then there are my relations.. Cousins.. Waylon Jennings (4th Cousin), Clint Black (2nd Cousin), Bill Medley (3rd cousin for those who don't know.. he is the other guy from the Righteous Bros. You know.. unchained melody.. Lost that Lovin Feeling.. etc.etc..) William the Conqueror.. .o.k so he's long gone, but his influence remains..he build the white chapel in the Tower of London. Just ask anyone in England. LOL
I'm sure there have been others.. just cant think right now.. it really late and I just got home from work.
Looking for one Danger at the Docks Exc.

I've met a lot of Battlestar Galactica (the newer one) actors at Cons before. Mary McDonnell (the Prez), Jamie Bamber (Apollo), James Callis (Baltar), and Mark Sheppard(Romo). The coolest though was Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck). I was at this smaller Con in Orlando in this hotel a few years ago and it was very easy to approach their guests because of that fact. She was really awesome to me. So personable and easy to talk to.
