MarkWahlberg almost flew on a doomed9/11 plane!
From The Boston Herald:
Mark his words
Mark Wahlberg, who was scheduled to fly on one of the doomed 9-11 planes from Boston to L.A. but changed his plans at the last minute, now says he believes he and his posse would have gone âUnited 93â on the terrorists!
âThere were a bunch of us, five or six . . . we were all guys too . . . but I was not traveling with security,â Wahlberg told Big Apple man-about-town Baird Jones at a press junket for the ex-Funky Buncherâs new flick, âInvincible.â âWe were in first class. We certainly would have tried to do something
Haha, I found the email with the schedule, but it didn't contain the name of the movie theater and I can't remember it! It's that little singlescreen on Geary, not the big deal cinemascope one (that one's on the other side of the street anyway). And midnight Showgirls is July 3, and I will be there, and you'd better get there early because it always sells out :)
I am also looking forward to the singalong Purple Rain.
