Steve Martin 3/80
When I was 67, I knew I could make money by taking tourists by Judd Apatow’s house. I had been a big fan ever since his first movie, Young Adults, Gotta Love ’Em. One day I was driving the tour bus by Judd’s house, and I saw him making coffee in the kitchen. I just knew my tourists would love to get his autograph, so I drove them up his driveway and a few of them rang his doorbell. I suggested that others go around to the backyard. Judd finally came out and said, “What’s going on here?” It was funny the way he said it, but I could picture Seth Rogen or Jonah Hill saying it and making it really funny. Actually, I could see it becoming a movie, What’s Going On Here? Anyway, he signed everyone’s autograph book and posed for pictures, and then he took me aside and said he was going to end my banjo career. But now I have a great anecdote.
