Hi, Jorge. I check your blog periodically and get a kick out of it. It's pretty amusing; you've got a good sense of humor. Thanks for the time put in. Take care.

Back as his star was rising, mid-to-late 80's, Mario had a very prophetic idea about fame. He said (and I am obviously paraphrasing) that people used to hear his name and say, "Mario who?" Then people would say, "Oh, Mario Van Peebles." At the time he was telling the story, he was at the "It's Mario VAN PEEBLES!" and it wouldn't be long, in the cycle of fame, when people would start saying, "Mario who?" again.

He's remained a working actor all these years. I will be glad to see what you've done together. I don't suppose you're allowed to tell us if it is LOST related?

: ) P

DID you work with hom on LOST? I hope so I like Mario-haven't seen him in awhile.

Joan Crawford said...

Wish I had any idea who that is. Thumbs up for having an awesome name though, Van Peebles.

A more pressing matter: What level have you made it to in "Vasebreaker Endless"? I reached a streak of 21!

CerberusVenting said...

WOW! Is he on the show or something or did you do one of his films/shows while filming L O S T? Anyways I have been following this blog for a little under a year now and have never commented, just wanted to say thanks for all the laughs,this site is ALWAYS interesting and i never know what's coming next which in this day and age is quite refreshing!

Frakkin Toaster said...

Did you work with him on Lost? I suppose not, 'cause I'm sure you guys have to sign crazy non-disclosure agreements, right? The question is, then, where do we see Jorge after Lost???

Sorry my ignorance. Who is Mario Van Peebles? Well, besides being a fan of Lost and your friend. See u.

Checkie said...

Reminds me a t-shirt I used to have, which said "Guns don't kill people. Mario Van Peebles!"

To this day, I'm still not sure why it was funny, but I got lots of good comments and laughs whenever I wore it.

King of Kenya said...

The Van Peebles clan is a rare one indeed. Buncha studs, for sure.

Paul Spooner said...

He was in one of my favourite films growing up: Heartbreak Ridge with Clint Eastwood....The man is a legend.

Malea said...

Sawyer5665 said...

No...Mario Van Peebles will not appear on Lost in front of the camera. He directed an episode of Lost that filmed recently. I can't wait for Lost to start back up!! February 2nd!!!

B.R said...

Well, I'm pretty sure he did something that was BIG-BUDGET-y, aside from L O S T.
What's that, Wikipedia?
Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song?
Hum.
