This week, CHML’s Scott Thompson wanted the scoop on my recent trip to Hollywood. I was there earlier this week to work the red carpet premiere of The Kennedys (bowing Sunday April 3 on Reelzchannel in the States and Sunday April 10 at 9 p.m. on History Television).
I’m not a red carpet guy, it’s an elbows up free-for-all I’ve never mastered. Sometimes, however, it is your only shot at getting near the talent with a Flipcam or recorder.
Not sure what I would have said to her anyway. Salem suggested we should ask her escort Tom Cruise if he was planning on making any movies with Paul Haggis.
Holmes plays Jackie opposite Greg Kinnear as Jack, and he’s very good as the doomed American president (and I’m not just saying that because he spoke with us). History Television is showing the miniseries in four two-hour chunks spread over four consecutive Sundays.
I say you could never salute a guy like Abbott enough, but I also knew him as a modest and very private man who would go and die right before the Junos just to dodge a lot of wheezy obits. May he jest in peace.
