Over the past 14 years, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some of the biggest names in entertainment. But there are still a number of people I’d like to meet. These are the “Top 10” that come to mind:
“Mary Poppins” is one of my lifelong favorite films.
A quintessential host and storyteller
I grew-up with “Lizzie McGuire”. Simply put: meeting Duff would complete my childhood.
She’s starred on a trifecta of sitcoms: “Everybody Loves Raymond”, the short-lived “Back to You” and “The Middle”, ending next month after an incredible 9 years.
He’s the creator of “SpongeBob SquarePants”, an entertainment game-changer and a lasting phenomenon.
The biggest badass action movie star on the planet
For more than 25 years, this Brit has been one of the most influential talk show voices, with an interviewing style and persona all his own.
A powerhouse artist with some of my favorite songs
The greatest actress alive
She’s an icon, with more experience in the business than anyone else working today.
