    I did security/traffic control on the movie "Joyride" with Paul Walker, Steve Zahn, and Leelee Sobieski. Walker was very cool, and made a point to come and sit with us during meals.

    I also worked on the movies "Play Dead", with Fred Durst and Chris Klien (Oz on American Pie), and Bill Murray's brother.

    I did "My Blueberry Nights" with Norah Jones, Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Ed Harris, etc.

    Check out the movies on www.imbd.com.

            Vice Pres. Dick Cheney (have a picture taken with him laying around here somewhere),

            Gen. Wallace M. Greene, U.S.M.C. (at the time was the Commandant of the U. S. Marine Corps and member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff),

            Morton Andersen (pro football kicker for the Saints and Falcons),

            Jake Delhomme (quarterback for the Carolina Panthers),

            Brian Mitchell (another pro footballer - running back for the Redskins, Eagles, and Giants),

            Ron Guidry ("Louisiana Lightning" - was THE pitcher for the NY Yankees - lives about five miles from here),

            Felisha Rashad (Actress - Bill Cosby's TV wife),

            Darryl Gates (former Chief of LAPD - founder of the D.A.R.E. Program and the man who essentially started the concept of S.W.A.T.),

              President George W. Bush ... on my job as a police officer and on my job as an EMT.

              Tons of others too.

              One which stands out though, was when I worked a protective detail for the former Mayor of Cincinnati who was running for the open Ohio US Senate seat, and was in DC delivering a series of speeches ... he was definitely the nicest and most considerate VIP, I ever protected ... none other than Jerry Springer.

              Another one which was a little weird was Howard Dean. I was assigned to his protective detail right after he dropped out of the race for president and was endorsing John Kerry at a speech in the 2200 block of H Street NW (Kogan Plaza). Two things about that detail ... wow, Howard Dean is short (I am 5'6" and he was shorter than me) and wow, Howard Dean's breath really smells bad.

              Haha, ok last one. Right after the US invaded Afghanistan, the US Gov't hosted the "Afghan Summit" in Washington DC. I was assigned as uniformed support to Abdullah Abdullah's detail (Foreign Minister and 2nd in Command of Afghanistan) ... as we were walking him up a set of stairs towards where he was going to be delivering his speech, his hair piece fell off. The poor guy was soooo embarrassed, that he ran back into the stairwell that we had just emerged from, nearly leaving all of us in the dust.

                As I was working (?) one of his "Lethal Weapon" movie locations, Mel Gibson started talking to me about the book I was reading (one of Tom Clancy's). He impressed me as pretty ordinary guy, not overly enamored with himself and someone who really liked to read.

                Big Trooper: I met Leelee Sobieski a couple of years ago too! She was probably the nicest, non-Hollywood, "Hollywood" person I've ever met. Really a neat, young, lady!

                A little over a year ago, I was introduced to the Honorable Kenneth Starr (now the Dean of Pepperdine University Law School) and got to spend about fifteen minutes speaking with him. A very impressive, intelligent and honest man, that I felt very humble in the presence of.

                  I was working the "rope line" in 1979 when he visied Des Moines, Ia. He walked within 25 ft of the security line. This was way back when I worked as a Deputy Sheriff.

                          Since I started in this business at the N.O. Intl airport wayyyyyyy to many to mention,from Penny Marshall,Cindy Williams,Valleri Bertinelli(she was fine at 15 even),Ann Margaret(she was finer at 50sumthin)David Soul.Fred MacMurray,Buddy Ebsen,etc etc.Most famous I guess ,would be when I escorted Lady Bird Johnson and her entrouage to their flight.Was wondering why they needed me with all the Secret Service agents around her,than it hit me ,they wanted a uniformed target,for distraction
