TV Junkie: The Top 10 Events We Covered in 2010
We go to a lot of events in order to cover all these TV goings-on for you, here's our list of the top ten that we attended in 2010 (and why) in reverse chronological order (whoa - September was a huge month for us):Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars" - On October 2nd we went to the taping of Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars," the autism charity event hosted by Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show." We're huge fans of comedy and they had a great lineup of comedians, many of whom talked to us on the red carpet. My one regret: not getting to speak to Sarah Silverman, making it a goal to do so in 2011.
"Bored To Death" Season 2 Premiere - We loved the first season of HBO's "Bored To Death" so it was exciting to go to the premiere of the 2nd season, on September 21, and see the cinematically filmed show projected on a theater screen with all the creators and actors in attendance. It was great to speak to the entire principal cast as well as series creator Jonathan Ames, and it was a very enjoyable event although I think that Jason Schwartzman thought that I had staked out the men's room in order to videotape him urinating. I was there first Jason, and all my cameras were put away! We're not that kind of reporter anyway.
"Boardwalk Empire" Series Premiere - On September 15 we went to the Ziegfeld Theatre in NYC for the "Boardwalk Empire" premiere event and although we didn't talk to Martin Scorcese and Steve Buscemi, we got to talk to these members of the amazing ensemble: Shea Whigham aka Sheriff Elias "Eli" Thompson, Vincent Piazza aka "Lucky" Luciano, Greg Antonacci aka Johnny Torrio, Paul Sparks aka Mickey Doyl, Kelly MacDonald aka Margaret Schroeder, Michael Kenneth Williams aka Chalky White, Anthony Laciura aka Eddie Kessler, and Adam Mucci aka Deputy Halloran. There were also several people from other HBO productions there, including: Denis O'Hare aka Russell Edgington aka The King of Mississippi in "True Blood," Adrian Grenier aka Vincent Chase in "Entourage," Tony Sirico aka Paulie "Walnuts" Gualtieri in "The Sopranos," Joe Manganiello aka Alcide Herveaux the werewolf in "True Blood," and Tom Hooper, director of "John Adams" and "Elizabeth I." It was something to be at the launch of a show that made everybody's Top Ten list.
