Still keep the people of Haiti in your prayers!
For Black History Month this week we spotlight ST. Louis native actor/singer Robert Guillame.
Born as Robert Peter Williams, he studied at St. Louis University and Washington University and served in the United States Army before pursuing an acting career. On leaving University, Robert joined the Karamu Players in Cleveland and performed in musical comedies and opera. He toured the world in 1959 as a cast member of the
Broadway musical "Free and Easy".
Some minor controversy was stirred when Guillaume replaced
In TV, Guillaume made his series-regular debut began on the ABC series Soap, playing Benson Du Bois, a butler, from 1977 to 1979. Guillaume continued the role in a spinoff series, Benson, from 1979 until 1986. He also appeared as marriage counselor Edward Sawyer on The Robert Guillaume Show (1989), Detective Bob Ballard on Pacific Station (1991), and television executive Isaac Jaffe on Aaron Sorkin's short-lived but critically acclaimed Sports Night (1998–2000).
Guillaume won an Outstanding Supporting Actor - Comedy Series primetime Emmy Award in 1979 for the series Soap, and an Outstanding Lead Comedy Actor primetime Emmy Award in 1985 for the series Benson, making him to this day the only African American actor to win the Lead Comedy Actor award. Guillaume has a star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame.
There were several people from the ILLIMO area who were a part of the Superbowl, directly and indirectly.
Members of the winning New Orleans Saints included University of Missouri alum and Saints quarterback Chase Daniel (in yellow shirt and although he didnt enter the game, he still receives a ring) and lansing Illinois native/Univerity of Illinois alum and Saints running back Pierre Thomas (black guy).
Before the SuperBowl game started, Kansas City Chiefs guard Brian Waters received the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, given annually to a player for accomplishments on and off the field.
Indirectly, Chicago talk show queen Oprah Winfrey was involved in her second Superbowl commercial with David Letterman (the other was in 2007). The 18-second promo for “Late Show With David Letterman” was one of the highlights of the commercials during Super Bowl XLIV. The spot, taped last week at the Ed Sullivan Theater, got a one-time-only airing, as Winfrey, Letterman and rival talk show host Jay Leno sharing the couch as Winfrey tries to bring peace to Letterman and Leno.
Letterman reportedly came up with the idea and wrote the script himself after CBS told him they were giving his show a brief promo during the Super Bowl. Letterman pitched the idea to Winfrey and said YES and Leno as well. To peep the hilarious ad go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcEx767TIas
Talk about unexpectedness, in unrelated Oprah newz, a first occurred on her long running show when a lady went into labor while she was taping her show last Friday. A Toronto woman who was 27-weeks pregnant was rushed to the hospital after her water broke as Oprah ran off set to the ambulance which was taking her to the hospital. The lady had a boy and phoned into the show during the taping. Oprah promised to fly McCrindle back to Chicago for another taping of the show.
Getting back to the ILLIMO's on the Superbowl, another ILLMO person was part of the commercials, another memorable one was one for Snickers that involved Emmy Award winning actress and Oak Park, Illinois native Betty White. To peep it go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYmlgO53jno
Locally in St. Louis, the big newz is the upcoming Mardis Gras celebrations this weekend. Visitors who travel to St. Louis by air this week will be welcomed with a Mardi Gras celebration. Lambert Airport will host its first Mardi Gras Day on Thursday as a run-up to the city's celebration this weekend.
To see a list of official activities go to
OUTTOWN EXCLUSIVE. STL photographer Erica Brooks gave us some first hand scoop about a native former Secret Service man who's life story may become a Hollywood movie. Last week Brooks was staying at The Le Montrose Suites Hotel in Hollywood where many directors and producers were discussing movies (we are assuming it was a conference) and she attended it to support family friend Abraham Bolden (PICTURED older man), an East St. Louis native and current Chitown resident who became the first African-American White House Secret Service agent appointed by Pres. John F. Kennedy (1961). He was there to discuss his life in a documentary and to meet the possible lead actor that will be playing his role. One strong candidate is "Great Debaters" actor Nate Parker (PICTURED) for the lead role as Bolden. He and Parker had an extensive 45minute conversation and Mr. Bolden seem to be very receptive to his character according to Brooks. The possible film will be adapted from his book, "Echoes from Dealey Plaza" (www.echofromdealeyplaza.net)
Bolden is currently seeking a pardon from President Obama and hopes the documentary and film will help influence it. Bolden was locked up in prison after he knew of various accounts of secret agents trying assassinate Kennedy when the government denied his information. As a result, he was fired form his job, locked up and was discredited of his honor.
For those who are fans or who watch the new award winning ABC comedy "Modern Family" (PICTURED FAR LEFT) saw a couple of weeks ago in an episode titled, " Not in My House" that two of its characters had dialogue about St. Louis native/award winning poet-educator Maya Angelou that gave reference to Angelou's gender and sexuality indirectly, but tastefully done (and pretty funny). OK here's the backstory, rival teen sisters Alex and Haley (Get it, ALEX HALEY? LOL) get even with each other. Haley was upset Alex read her journal. To get even, Haley defaced her signed Maya Angelou poster. The following dialogue is when after Alex scorned Haley for defacing her Angelou poster:
Haley: Oh, it’s just some dude with weird hair.
Alex: (holding up poster) That’s Maya Angelou , you idiot.
Hmmm, interesting to say the least. Sio, did the writers on the sly make reference that Angelou looked like a man and was a lesbian especially with the WBNA where there are assumptions made that open and closeted lesbians play on the WNBA as well as its fans who follow the league. Wonder what Angelou had to say, or if she even saw the episode?
Last Saturday was the Fresh Frest at the Chaifetz Arena with old school rappers including Salt N Pepa. During Dougie Fresh's set, he introduced unannounced rapper Kurtis Blow (PICTURED) who wasnt scheduled on the bill. From reports, Blow was a last-minute replacement for no-show Slick Rick, who is a regular performance partner of Fresh.
