Who I would like to have a beer (dinner) with...
« on: July 19, 2013, 09:18:48 am »
I swore I started this subject, but guess not.

Anyway, the idea, if you could have sit down with a beer with an individual, who would they be?

Charles Barkley: Up to this day, all I knew was his basketball playing, but watching this short interview, Charles Barkley sounds like a great person to sit and shoot the bull with.

Who do you have?

Am I only allowed one pick? Or can I meet the person, then excuse myself to the bathroom, climb out the window and then pick another since the drink / dinner was never fullfilled to completion, thus giving me an 'out' and a way to circumvent your "rules".  ;D

Someone who wouldn't mind that I'm having water.

This is reminding me of... William Shatner has a web series called "Brown Bag Testing" where he talks to someone and they drink a mystery wine and that person uses their area of expertise to describe it (a film guy explains in special effects terms, a bodybuilder discusses it in bodybuilding terms, etc).  it's actually a neat little way to look into how their minds work.

Shatter Shatner would be a blast to shoot the bull with. That concept sounds pretty damn interesting.

It's a cute idea.  Shatner gets this reputation as being kind of self-centered and in love with his own voice or whatever but recently (maybe because of this, I dunno) he's been doing docs and my mental picture of him is him listening to other people.  Which is what creative types (writers, actors) should be doing anyway, taking it all in.

Chips latest post just reminded me...

I would love to have a beer with Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart. I find them personable, funny and would just be a blast to have dinner with.

Hugh Laurie, while, I've never seen his shows, I have seen him in interviews, bits like comedy central, etc and find he would be a lot of fun sharing a beer with

William Shatner has a web series

What was that TVshow Shatner had where he had invited specific guests and just shoot the bull with them for 1/2 hour?

Speaking of both Colbert and Laurie, you absolutely need to watch this in its entirety. No skipping or fastforwarding. It's worth every damn second of it.

I'd get a beer with Larry David and Ricky Gervais, both of who are polar opposites. With LD, I would relate to an entire conversation that was riddle with nothing but sarcasm. With Gervais, who wouldn't want to have a beer with someone that finds everything funny? I'd also echo Mac's choice with Colbert as well.

Believe it or not, but I'd also get a beer with Heather Graham and be content just to have a conversation with her.

Gervais could be a challenge.

Louis C.K. would probably make me do lots of spit takes. Best not to eat or drink around him.

Ron Howard

I've always like Ron Howard. I think he would be a blast to have a beer with.
