Steve Martin is also quite an accomplished magician.

Do any of you guys know Reg Bacon?

He published a Juggling with Miscellania book.

He does some nice stuff...old school. Or at least this is what he was doing 15 years ago.

Nice,
Thanks for the info. I did not know Peter was in it, as well. Peter's an old friend of mine.

Was Peter wearing a wrestling mask?

Ok, yes, I was wearing a mask. but no, I was not in the movie. I did go to the casting call but I was going to be in china when they shot the scene. I did get a sense of what they were trying to do, which was- spend a lot of money to get it wrong yet again! hollywood never portrays juggling realistically. oh well. I have not seen it yet, it is not getting great reviews. some other people in it are barry rosenberg and joel Harris. they said they only got extra pay but the hours added up and the grub was good. reg bacon is going strong. they say steve was nice, I have mad respect for him. I just read born standing up and it is outstanding. and the jerk...
and steve- I may be your friend but don't call me old!

Yes,
I have not seen the whole movie yet... but I have seen the juggling scene, and it was not portrayed realistically at all. Shame really.
Loved "Born standing up" one of my recent favorite reads.
And, yes, Peter is actually a very young friend. I did know him before he was in such a Panic. Hope you are well, young friend.
Great to see you joining in our little juggler's room here in the Café.
Cheers!
