So during the show's run, I went to the TNT website to see where I might be able to send Joe Bob some of that mail he read on the show. When I emailed him, get this: he emailed back. Like, a couple of times. I kept asking him stupid questions about what it was like to get yelled at by Robert DeNiro in Casino and mentioning something about his bit part in Face/Off. He was cool about answering my emails and appreciative of the compliments I gave about his knowledge of the movies they would play on MonsterVision.
I honestly can't remember if I asked for it or not, but I got something in the mail one day with the TNT logo on the return address. It was this (pay no attention to the weirdo behind the picture):
That's Joe Bob! He sent me an autographed photo, saying "To Michele [that's me], sweetest gal in Missouri. Joe Bob." Seriously, how cool is that? And he actually spelled my name right, too. Some members of my family still can't get that pesky one "L" thing right. I thought the picture had gotten lost in a recent move, but I found it a few days ago and wanted to share it with you guys.
You're jealous, right? Well, if I weren't me, I'd be jealous.
