"Lonesome Dove" is my favorite miniseries of all time. It stars a boatload of amazing actors and, in my opinion, is deeply underrated. I frankly don't know anyone who's as big a fan of it as my best friend! And thanks to him, I was able to meet this legendary cast and get their autographs.
Ever since he decided to work in television, getting to meet all sorts of celebrities had been one of the best perks of being his friend. I never would've dreamed of seeing all these awesome stars in person. And thanks to him—or rather, because of him—I've become quite the autograph hound. I mean, you would be too if you meet them on a practically regular basis! If you had a major celebrity standing in front of you, you'd be a fool not to get their autograph, right? Others would kill to be in your position!
Anyway, thanks to my friend's many connections, we were able to get into the reunion of the "Lonesome Dove" cast. It was held in the River Ranch Stockyards and all the major stars attended. There was Robert Duvall, Danny Glover, Diane Lane, and more! Now, you need to understand: these guys are legends! They're some of the best actors of their time and like I said earlier, you'd be a fool not to get their autographs!
And so I did! I had my "Lonesome Dove" posters ready and when the time was right, I approached each one and asked them to sign. It wasn't easy, of course, since I didn't want to look like a fool ruining the reunion. I had to be very strategic as to when and where I would approach them. Luckily for me, I had my friend with me. He's not famous at all but he's grown quite a solid reputation in Hollywood. Even Duvall recognized who he was (which completely caught him off guard, LOL! You should've seen my friend's face when the actor chatted with him!).
Although the cast wasn't complete at the time—Tommy Lee Jones and Anjelica Huston weren't there—we were more than satisfied with the autographs we got. My friend then acquired the other autographs through his many Hollywood connections.
I'm pretty sure there won't ever be a miniseries quite like "Lonesome Dove" ever again. And there definitely won't be a reunion quite as legendary as the one my friend and I attended too!
Please note: Our inventory is limited as we may have only received a few posters in total. Most of our items are obtained from film premieres, studios, and from autographed hounds such as the one in the story above.
