Weekend Photos from Hollywood

I just got back from a two week vacation and spent part of last Sunday at the Hollywood Collector's Show. The lady above used to scare me as a kid. That's Sarah Douglas, who played Ursa in the Superman movies. I was surprised how tall she was. She told me that she just got back from a month in China, where she was filming a movie for the Sci-Fi Channel.
This is Rusty Goffe, probably the most recognizable Oompa Loompa from "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory". He also was the Ministry of Magic Goblin in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix".
This is Stan Freberg, famous voice over actor, radio personality, composer, singer, author, and comedian. He voiced Junyer Bear in the Looney Tunes, the beaver in Lady and the Tramp, and the yawning man in George Pal's Tom Thumb. In the background of this photo you can see actor Mickey Rooney in the yellow shirt.
