This time it's for the small instructional sports cable network Sportskool.

Images from here, "in the palasades on set with sean astin shooting for an upcoming sportskool video. we had a blast. in between takes we all got in a game of “two on two”, “three on three” and just plain spiral throwing of the pigskin! i love what i do and being surrounded by such talented individuals both in front of the camera and behind the scenes." -joey

Finally, some pictures of Sean at the 37th Annie Awards have showed up. Unfortunately, his tux must have been at the cleaners. Still, he's looking like he enjoyed himself.

Kudos to [personal profile] lbilover for the find!

As I mentioned earlier, by the time Joy and I got to the room where Sean was signing autographs, there was a very long line. There were two tables set in an "L" shape with Sean sitting at one, so brave Daughter just pulled up two chairs for us to sit at the other and wait until the line ended. At first we were about mid-way down the table, but gradually we moved our chairs closer to the end near Sean. Eventually, he started including us in some of the conversations he was having with those he was signing autographs for!

very long rambling so I don't forget anything plus several pics )

On Tuesday, Nov 17, Daughter and I went to Johns Hopkins University to see Sean’s lecture. We were escorted to our reserved seats, which happened to be in the front row, right next to 4 seats labeled “Astin Family.” We argued briefly over who would sit next to an Astin family member, and being younger and stronger, Daughter won. ;-)

But the real winner was John Astin, who got to sit next to Daughter!

Daughter and I decided to go to see the play directed by John Astin and starring Mackenzie Astin at Johns Hopkins University on November 14. We were both pretty tired and almost passed on it, but then a the last minute decided, oh heck why not?

As soon as we walked in the door and I saw who was selling the tickets, I knew we made the right decision. :-)))))))

Long squeey ramblings and many pics below the cut )

From a blog about a visit to Disneyland:
A highlight of our trip was that we got to meet Sean Astin aka Sam from The Lord of the Rings movies. He was the nicest guy. His wife offered to take this picture of him with our family. The following day we ran into him again. This time HE noticed us and said "Hi again" When I told him that my brothers were big fans and were jealous that we met him. He asked what their names were and when I said Joe and Greg he wrote a quick hello " To Joe and Greg " I thanked him and wondered to myself who would have custody. So if you liked him before- like him more knowing what a nice guy he is.



From the date stamp on the pic, this is from when Sean was at Disneyland last month.
