I worked in 30 Rock at the time. Oddly we almost never saw anyone.
Not many people in the building on a Saturday.
When Bill Murray was new, he took my tour.
I didn't recognize him. Neither did anyone on the tour.
He bribed me with tickets to the show that weekend.
I told him everyone at NBC swore they worked for that show when they wanted something for free. (Like going up to the roof)
He convinced me. It was a very interesting tour!
At the end everyone on the tour asked him for an autograph (mostly to find out who the hell he was)
He signed "Write if you get work" Which was a old Bob and Ray routine. (Chris Elliot's dad. Chris had the same job as me when he graduated high school. Output Machine Failing, Guys!, he is quite a few years younger than me and now he is playing a grandfather on TV)
back to the story
That sat night Hubby (then boyfriend) and I showed up at the call desk and damm! There were tickets!
Saw the show, he actually was on it!
A month later, he saw me in the lobby with a tour and said Hi! By then people were beginning to recognize him.
I also rode the elevator once with Belushi.
Was looking down and the doors opened and he got in.
Saw these really fancy shoes
Followed them up to really clean jeans and then a nicly pressed shirt.
Then the face
Oh crap! It is Belushi!
Said "You look familiar "
He said "That is what I say every day when I look in the mirror"
Elevator got to where we (me and hubby again...must have been after work...nbc commissary was a good place to go for dinner...were going and we got off.
That Sat we watched the show on TV and there was John, with the same exact pants, shirt and shoe combo.
He was always sloppy. We must have caught him after his weekly bath.
btw, there is a code of the city...you do not acknowledge seeing anyone famous.
I was just shocked when I saw who it was. If I was looking up when he entered the elevator, I wouldn't have said anything.
WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!
No greater love is lost than that not shared.
