Sean Penn won’t return to Gaslight unless everyone on the set is vaccinated
July 23rd, 2021 under Sean Penn. [ Comments: none ]

Sean Penn was one of the first people to stand up and do something about COVID-19. With his nonprofit CORE, he established large testing areas in major cities. Then he turned them in vaccination sites. Therefore, he is taking this pandemic seriously, and he is continuing to use his voice to make sure that we end it.

One of the ways of ending it is to make sure people get vaccinated. Therefore, he told the producers of Gaslit that everyone, not just the people who have immediate contact with the Zone A cast and crew, needs to be vaccinated, or he won’t return to the set, according to Deadline. He even offered up to get everyone the shot through CORE.

Since the Delta Variant is spreading the virus exponentially, I don’t blame him for drawing this line in the sand. And it has been ruled that Hollywood can enforce that everyone needs to be vaccinated. So if you want to work on a production, get vaccinated. If not, then find another job.

Several TV shows and movies have been shut down this month because people are testing positive for coronavirus. The vaccine doesn’t prevent you from getting it; it prevents you from getting very sick due to it. We cannot reach herd immunity unless we all, that can, get the shot. Stop listening to the lies. Getting the virus is worse than getting the vaccine. If you can’t comprehend that, then don’t go to the hospital when you get sick. The doctors have all been telling you to get the shot. If you are going to ignore the warning, then don’t cry when you get really sick.

I don’t want anyone to get COVID-19, but I want everyone that can to get the vaccine.

And when it comes to this case, I am being selfish and thankful to Penn for putting his foot down. That is because he is shooting Gaslit in Burbank, which is the town next to mine. We have been really good where I live to protect ourselves and our neighbors against the virus. I don’t want strangers spreading it here.


BTWF: Sean Penn on Little House on the Prarie
July 23rd, 2021 under Before They Were Famous, Sean Penn. [ Comments: none ]

Before Sean Penn was an Oscar winner, he had to get his start somewhere and the 14-year-old got it on a 1978 episode of Little House on the Prarie.


Sean Penn made a funny about the Attack on the Capitol
January 8th, 2021 under Sean Penn. [ Comments: 3 ]

I always think of Sean Penn as a serious man, but it turns out he does have a funny side to him. Something that he has been showing a lot of recently.

Case in point, today, he made a joke about Donald Trump’s instigated attack on Capitol Hill yesterday. “I don’t think it’s appropriate for the president to use the Capitol for open casting calls for ‘The Apprentice.’ 1100 S. Ocean Blvd in Palm Beach has more space,” Penn wrote.

Since there are rumors that Mark Burnett wants to revive The Apprentice with Trump, Penn might be onto something. It should be easy to produce. They can film it in whatever federal jail Trump and cult 45 members are all assigned to.


Judge Reinhold on Brad Pitt playing him in the Fast Times table read
September 18th, 2020 under Brad Pitt, Sean Penn. [ Comments: 3 ]

Sean Penn asked some of his new friends to do a virtual table read of Fast Times at Ridgemont High to raise money for his charity. Core does a lot of amazing work like providing COVID-19 testing sites in hard-hit areas.

I say new friends because he didn’t ask any of his co-stars from the original movie to do it. Instead, he had Julia Roberts read Jennifer Jason Leigh’s Stacy, Jennifer Aniston was Phoebe Cate’s Linda, and a stoned Shia LaBeouf filled in for Penn.

Who played Brad? Brad Pitt, of course. Shortly before the table read went live, Judge Reinhold, who originally held his part, I mean the part, asked his fans to watch. When it came to him talking about Pitt filling his huge pirate hat, he said, “I think Brad Pitt, is playing me, which would only make sense, cause the resemblance is uncanny.” Yes, it is.

Is it just me, or does Reinhold look better now than he did in the 1982 film that never gets old?

On that note, do you want to see the table read, then click here!


Sean Penn talks about the real Jeff Spicoli!
April 11th, 2019 under Conan O'Brien, Sean Penn. [ Comments: none ]

No matter how many Oscars Sean Penn wins or roles he plays, he will most be remembered for one of his earliest roles. Nothing can compare to the greatness of Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High!

Yesterday, when the actor was on Conan, O’Brien wanted to know if based the stoner surfer on anyone in particular. He did.

After reading Cameron Crowe’s book, which the film is based on, he immediately thought of someone that was “rhythmically aligned with that character.” That guy was one of the first people he met when he moved to Malibu in 1969.

The TBS host then wanted to know if this guy knew that the ultimate ’80s dude was based on him. Penn said, “I really don’t think so, but part of that, may have had to do, with him, not knowing where he was.”

Now that we have a better image of the man that Penn knew from the time he was 9-17, has he ever seen him since their memorable time, to only one them, on the beach surfing? About 2 months ago, Penn was riding the waves and he ran into a well-spoken family man. Penn couldn’t place him until he told him his name. This businessman was the same man that was the inspiration for Jeff Spicoli.

Which is kind of interesting if you think about it. Penn is more like Spicoli today than the guy who he based the part on. Whoa. Mr. Hand would be so blown away by that.

BTW I am totally watching Fast Times again because of this interview. To me, this is the greatest coming of age movie from the ’80s. Sorry John Hughes, but it is.
