Tracy Morgan Phone Home~!



Actor Tracy Morgan was chased by a Pitbull while riding a highly stylized bike and dressed in a cell-phone costume today, June 3, 2009 in Queens, New York!

Well, geeze….I’d go nuts too if I saw something like that taking off on a bike like that, LOL!

Tracy was filming a scene from “A Couple of Dicks” that he stars in with Bruce Willis and a fellow dog afficionado, Adam Brody!  Won’t be out til next year though….it sounds hilarious!

Artists and Dogs (and Cats)




Reknowned postminimalist artist, “artist’s artist”, Richard Tuttle is pictured at the premiere and after party for the film “Herb and Dorothy” at the Cinema Village Cinema yesterday, June 1, 2009 in New York City.

Attending the premiere and party with him is his chocolate poodle, “Choco”, who’s so quiet and well-behaved that once, Richard left him behind in his carrier at a restaurant!

The film, directed by Megumi Sasaki,  is a fascinating true story about Herb and Dorothy Vogel; a postal worker and a librarian, who built one of the most important contemporary art collections in history(!!) on their small budget and contained it in their tiny apartment where they live with their cat.  

The film has won several film festival awards including the Audience Appreciation Awards and Best of Fest award, and is premiering at the Cinema Village Cinema in NYC June 5, 2009.  Pictured below are Herb (in wheelchair) and wife Dorothy, Richard Tuttle and Choco, and the director herself; Megumi Sasaki.

I just want to know how Richard balances Choco on his shoulders; I can hardly keep mine on my lap!  And Herb looks like he may have been overserved!

Update: Richard Gere and Hachiko!

Wow, have the last couple of years been a box-office bonanza for dog movies or what?

In May of 2007, we reported that the eternally handome Gere would be starring in and producing the touching story of the bond between a college professor and the abandoned dog he takes in, based on a true story. Also starring teen horror movie alumus Sara Roemer, it’s scheduled to be released around August 8, 2009 and is already generating some Oscar buzz for next year!

Sara Roemer is also a dog-lover and has 3 dogs of her own. We look forward to featuring them here soon!

We’re still debating which is cuter here; Richard or that little Akita?

Correction: a couple of CDW readers informed us this is a Shiba Inu…not an Akita in the photo.
