Hangin' with Wez

I just hung out with Vernon Wells a couple of days ago. I got the autographs I was never able to get after my arrest.





He said that his brother would take some pics of his costume for me. Hopefully he will do that soon so I can post them on my site. Should be pretty cool.

Vern said he is going to be in a Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde movie coming out later this year. Also, he'll be in Sci-Fi Channel's "Reptilian" series next year I think.





I didn't get a chance to go to Zubie's! I was in Long Beach, but it closed at 9pm on Sunday and I missed out. But there will be a next time...





Check out my pics with Vern & his wife on Audrey's "Mighty Wez" webpage:

By the way, Vern said that Michael Preston (Pappagallo) moved to the USA and had a limo business out of Studio City for a while. Vern talked about him like he was really old now or something. I guess he could be in his 70's now.

Try to get Mike Preston's contact information. It would be great to invite him to future events.


Would you believe after all the time I spent with Vernon, I didnt get an autograph? Timimg seems off after all hell broke loose.

You didn't get an autograph!? You & Evan probably spent more time with him than anyone else.





Vern hasn't been in touch much with Mike lately. And last he heard, Mike was in poor health.


I don't think Mike has done any film/TV work for quite a while...

Karol there's a pic of the Wez costume on Audrey's Mighty Wez site.


The pic is about 5 years old(approx.) but it's probably still the same today.

Thanks, Bugs. I saw it. But I will need a heap more detailed photos if I'm meant to recreate the costume accurately. If you see Sid & can ask him, or can take some pix for me, let me know.


If you help me out, maybe I can make Steve an exact replica of his dad's costume?


Thanks
