Orlando Bloom was honored with a star at the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. He is star #2521. Guest speakers were actor Forest Whitaker, who starred alongside Mr. Bloom in the movie “Zulu,” and director David Leveaux. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer was also spotted in the crowd.
Orlando may be the man of the hour but it was his little boy, Flynn, who took the spotlight. He was with his dad the whole time he was speaking, never wanted to part. The little toddler was so cute he was able to entertain the crowd with his mere presence. His mom, Victoria’s Secret supermodel and Mr. Bloom’s former wife, Miranda Kerr, was not around for this ceremony though I wished she was.
I was really happy to be a part of this, as this man appeared in three of my favorite movies of all time: Troy, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Lord of The Rings. If there’s anybody in this industry who can bear the nickname “Epic,” it’s none other than Orlando Bloom.
Congratulations to Mark Harmon for getting the 2,482nd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
For this event, I was only expecting to see Mark Harmon and perhaps one or two guest speakers but lo and behold! All the NCIS cast and crew were there! They happen to be in the middle of production at the Dillon’s Irish Pub, a restaurant where Mark’s star will be placed in front of, so it was an awesome encounter. The down side is, I don’t watch the show. I would’ve been a very happy fanboy. But then at least I knew a little about Pauley Perrette, I’ve seen her from the Expedia commercial before. And Mark Harmon, I saw him on The Deliberate Stranger: The Ted Bundy Story. He’s so handsome haha. Now I’ve met them all, I’ll start watching NCIS, Abby Sciuto has converted me to NCISianism!
Now the photos!
I love this ID… I think the letters are a bit small here but it says at the bottom “valid for star ceremony and lunch reception.” The last part is the most important thing, isn’t it?
Here’s the chair of Cote De Pablo waiting for her…
First one I saw: Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard, David McCallum
Then it’s Ziva David, Cote De Pablo. This i my first time to hear about her and see her. She’s lovely. I can’t wait to watch her on my first NCIS episode tonight!
Abby Sciuto, Pauley Perrette. Great personality and great with people. Really knows how to entertain the crowd. Yep, I’m a fan of hers now!
She’s got pretty awesome tattoos as well!
Haha stick figures with halos on both sides and a flower (?) in the middle. Not everybody can pull that off!
The man of the hour, Special Agent Jethro Gibbs, Mark Harmon arrives and is greeted by his team mates. They’re known as the BOMBERS, the football team that Mark played for in his early days. Can you guess what position he played?
He is greeted by his family, friends, work buddies and his loving fans. Here he is giving a kiss to his NCIS co-star, Pauley Perrette.
Start of the ceremony. Guest Speaker Les Moonves takes the stage.
A very dear friend of Mark, he’s not really a big household name. But he’s the President and CEO of CBS Corporation. Now who’s your daddehhh?!
Here’s Mark giving a speech…
…or belting out a Pavarotti. Nah.
Some of the people in attendance listening to every word he says:
Jimmy Palmer, Brian Dietzen
Anthony Dizzono, Michael Weatherly
And again, the BOMBERS!
Mark mentions the special people in his life. Here’s Ducky being given a pat on the back by his cast mates as Mark talks about him.
Here’s the special photographer doing her thing
That’s going straight to Twitter! And now, smile everyone!!!
I’ll have a look on her phone and see if my face is in there.
Here now is the complete speech:
Some extra shots after the ceremony:
Here’s Mark’s wife, Pam Dawber (left) interacting with the fans. You probably remember her as Mindy from the TV Series Mork & Mindy. I wasn’t born yet when it was airing. I’m only 16 right now, so much more to see and learn.
And a funny video while Mark is doing his photo op. During the photo op, photographers usually ask the celebrities to look a certain direction so they can get their shots. “Look to your left/right” are the the most common phrases you’ll hear. This time, Mark Harmon’s NCIS co-stars Pauley Perrette and company help Mr. Harmon where to look: to his right, where a bunch of people inside the Irish Pub are taking photos of him too! These turn out to be the NCIS crew who are currently in the middle of a production inside the pub and took time off to see this historical moment of Mr. Harmon’s career.
It was a great day. A very special day for all Mark Harmon & NCIS fans out there. Once again, congratulations to Mark Harmon!
