2 celebrities have visited my town in the past half-year
 
I live in a small town of about 2,000 people, but for some reason there have been two celebrities in the past half year who have visited the town. The first one was Bucky Cunningham of American Idol fame who sung a few songs for my High School. It was really neat. The second celebrity I did not see in person, sadly. The second celebrity was here the day before yesterday. He was William Hurt. Like I said, I did not see him, my Mom saw him and she was a real fan of The Village. It's really amazing that celebrities have even visited this town. Nobody really knew about the William Hurt visit except for a few people, though.

Yeah, but William Hurt won an Oscar! My Mom works at the cafe that he was at.

My village is to small to be of any use to celebrities. :( :lol:

Well, to be fair, my town has historical significance.

Oh yeah? Well YTV films in my home city ALL THE TIME! (actually, one of those Boys & Girls clubs in that commercial for them is one I go to frequently)

Hmmm... closest thing I got is that the Sonoco facility that my dad works at was photographed to demonstrate the flooding a couple weeks back.

Let's see...

I live near Hagerstown, MD. The Maryland Theatre in downtown Hagerstown often has celebrities of one form or another.

I recall a couple months ago when Alter Bridge held a concert directly outside in Hagerstown. I wasn't there, but I remember seeing roads blocked off.

We got to meet a children's author when I was little who wrote a book about puppies. I wanted to talk to him, but I never did. :(

Some of Stardust was filmed in Norwich. Other than that I can think of nothing.

I live in toronto, and celebrities are breezing through here all the time. Here is a list of celebrities I have seen in person:

Sigourney Weaver (that was in New York City)
Peter O'Toole
Don Adams (the original Get Smart)
Moebius (comic book artist extraordinaire) -- also got autograph
Saul Rubinek (probably only well known in Toronto)
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Karla Collins (host of E-Now TV show)
Pamela Wallin (famous journalist)
Pierre Trudeau
Matt Dunnigan (CFL quarterback)

Jeez. After writing out that list, I'm jealous of myself!
