  1. Hi Irish, yes I've met him several times...at the filming on Long Island for the Bounty Hunter, at the Bounty Hunter Premier, at Playing For Keeps premier and he's been an absolute doll each time. At the Bounty Hunter filming, he stayed around to sign autographs and take pics with the fans. At Playing for Keeps,he sent his assistant to invite every one in to see the film. Most times it's impossible to get tickets to a premier. I have never heard any thing negative said about him and he does go out of his way to be nice. Hi Stuart, I had been to Scotland this past summer and really wanted to get him to sign the photo I took at the Battlefield.I wish I had had more time to discuss this with him and tell him how much i loved his country but he was late coming and there were other fans waiting for him......maybe next time!!
  2. Yesterday in the rain and wind, we stood for hours inside and out of the Lincoln Square AMC theater in New York, watching the red carpet tent go up, talk to the crew and wander around the theater which has multiple flights and theaters within the building. IMAX on the 4th. floor for example. One of the new came over to us and spoke about "what a nice guy Gerry was" having worked on the set up at the Ziegfeld Theater for "The Bounty Hunter. " The premier Gerry's Gods of Egypt was to take place there later in the evening. Barricades were up, lines on the other side were there for VIP pick up tickets and those holding the free tickets that had been given out previously.In the meantime, movies throughout the theater went on. Seems to be open from very early in the day until late. The tent was completely closed all around because of the weather. and not accessible except through the from door or around the back, only to those who were supposed to be there. The photographers had arrived earlier and were set up and ready to shoot. They wandered in and out of the tent as need be. The security crew had blocked off parts of the lobby from public viewing and ropes were put up to herd the guests how and where to proceed. First for the cameras then to the second floor where the movie would be shown. VIP guest and stars began arriving in their Escalades about 6:00. Auxiliary police were everywhere directing traffic and pedestrians passing the tent. There was also a rumor that there would be a group that would be protesting the film as " no Egyptian actors had been used" No one showed up. Security was there with umbrellas to assist the stars out of their cars and into the tent which had doors.....lots of beautiful women dressed to in beautiful outfits, the director came over to talk to us when he arrived and we got a fast look at the co star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau wearing a bit of stubble. The movie was supposed to start at 7:00 and Gerry hadn't arrived yet. His car finally pulled up at 7:30....he got out and saw us and rain & all came over. Dressed beautifully and with a bit of stubble himself. I decided not to take a pix as it's hard to balance pix, marker, gloves,etc. I really wanted him to sign my photo of his block on the path at Culloden Battlefield, Scotland. he did, remarking how "depressing a place it was."I said it was a very sad place knowing what had happened there in 1746. I said he could keep the marker for the next one and he stepped away to take a pix with my friend Kathleen. We left soon after, very happy campers. Several of the police came over to us happy we had seen Gerry and got what we wanted. The rain was worse when we got home to Long Island but we didn't care!

  5. Gerry's stone in Scotland

  6. That is one great interview! After seeing the movie last night, I can see how well Gerry learned to fulfill the shoes of Mike Banning. The best part was him kicking butt of the terrorists. Everyone in the theater clapped and howled! The rest of the actors are all amazing.....you just have to pray that it never happens in the real world and it's only a movie you are watching!
  7. Kathleen T. and I have just returned from a screening of OHF....this is a powerful film in that it shows we can be vulnerable to an attack on our most treasured places such as the White House.The movie is fast paced and it's not often that you hear cheers and clapping from the audience but they went wild especially when Gerry got the villain! He kicks some serious butt here. I'd like to have him watching my back any time and even tho it's "pretend" he'd make a fine White House F. B. I. agent protecting our president. As we left the theater, they handed out OHF pins to everyone, earlier they had asked for our opinions of what we thought the movie would be like and they will be shown on Twitter. The movie opens on Friday and I would not mind seeing it again! be sure you don't miss it, it's really terrific! Celtic Star
  8. gerry is a perfect purveyor for peace because his heart is in every charity he helps
  9. George is interesting. He's been a player, but he's not a dog. He's a good man, just a bit lost. He's never really grown up, but he's never tried to hurt anybody. It's a lesson in life about second chances and forgiveness and the sacrifices we make to become deeper individuals. (Quote from Gerry} Does this sound a little bit like some one we know? Being on the fan line for 12 hours, you get to talk to a lot of interesting people besides the new fans you meet. There was not a one person, aide, security, etc. who had a bad thing to say about Gerry. Everyone said he's a sweet person and a real gentleman. We saw some of that when he came over to talk to us, he signed pix and posed for pictures. Celttis Star aka Camille

  13. Taken from Wekipedia....how the waves came to be named In early March 1961, three surfers, Alex Matienzo, Jim Thompson, and Dick Knottmeyer, decided to try the distant waves off Pillar Point. With them was a white-haired German Shepherd named Maverick, owned by a roommate of Matienzo. Maverick was used to swimming out with his owner, or with Matienzo, while they were out surfing. The trio left Maverick on shore but he swam out and caught up with them. Finding the conditions too unsafe for the dog, Matienzo paddled back and tied Maverick to the car bumper before rejoining the others. The riders had limited success that day, surfing overhead peaks about 1/4 mile from shore, just along the rocks that are visible from shore. They deemed conditions for surfing the bigger outside waves too dangerous. They decided to name the point after Maverick, who seemed to have gotten the most out of the experience. It became known as "Maverick's Point", and later simply "Maverick's".[1] In the Special Features section of Riding Giants[citation needed], Jeff Clark mentioned that his little league coach would take the kids to surf the small waves of this same inside break, and stated that the coach used to refer to the break as Mavericks. Jeff Clark, having grown up in Half Moon Bay, watched Maverick's from an early age from the campus of Half Moon Bay High School and on the rugged coastal shores of Pillar Point. At that time the location was deemed too dangerous to surf. He spent time watching the break, and conceived the possibility of riding Hawaii-sized waves in Northern California. One day in 1975, at the age of 17 and with the waves topping out at 20 to 24 feet (7.3 m), Clark paddled out alone to face Maverick's. He was successful, catching a number of left-breaking waves, thereby becoming the first person (documented) to tackle Maverick's head-on. Other than a few close friends who had paddled out and seen Maverick's themselves, no big wave surfers believed in its existence. The popular opinion of the time was that there simply were no large, Hawaii-sized waves in California.[2] Yet Clark's classmates from Half Moon Bay High School often speak of cutting class on big surf days to sit on the bluff and watch Clark ride the giant waves alone. Two of the next people to surf at Maverick's, on January 22, 1990 and in the company of Clark, were Dave Schmidt (brother of big wave legend Richard Schmidt) and Tom Powers, both from Santa Cruz. John Raymond, from Pacifica, Johathan Galili, from Tel Aviv and Mark Renneker, from San Francisco, surfed Maverick's a few days later.
