People say Steve has a big head
I don't know what ballpark this is, but apparently Steve made a special appearance
Steve as Arthur -Conan Doyle?
I don't know if this is a joke or not, but I can see Steve playing the part.
Playing Sherlock Holmes With Google
— Mon, May 22, 2006 —
If you're like us, you use Google at least 100 times a day. So when the Google sign pays tribute to Arthur Conan Doyle we take notice. Especially because we didn't see anything about it in the New York Times.
If you're under the age of 25, you may or may not have ever heard of this guy ... but you surely know his characters by heart. And in the attempt to save you the three seconds it would take to do this yourself, we clicked on the Google sign, and pulled up some info on the author in celebration of his birthday.
And in homage to average Googler, we pulled up the first entry that came up instead of searching for the most reliable.
Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Scotland and studied medicine there, eventually serving as a physician in the Boer War (1899-1902). But his fame rests on his creation of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Doyle published his first Holmes tale, A Study in Scarlet, in 1887. Over the following 40 years he published 56 short stories and four novels featuring Holmes and his sidekick, Dr. Watson. Late in life Doyle became closely interested in mysticism and wrote the 1926 book A History of Spiritualism.
And Steve Martin will be playing him in the on screen biography.

Under the radar
Where is he going? Where will he be? Who knows.
Here's where he's been.
On May 9, 2006, Steve was in California for an American Film Institute showing of Wah Wah, a movie by his friend and cohort Richard E. Grant (of the chiming balls in L.A. Story).
Q&A followed the screening of the movie with writer/director Richard E. Grant and guest moderator writer/director/actor/author Steve Martin, followed by a hosted reception.
"Acclaimed actor Richard E. Grant’s WAH-WAH is a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story, told through the eyes of young Ralph Compton (Nicholas Hoult). Set during the last gasp of the British Empire in Swaziland, South East Africa, in 1969, the plot focuses on the dysfunctional Compton family whose gradual disintegration mirrors the end of British rule.
As an 11 year-old, Ralph witnesses his mother's (Miranda Richardson) adultery with his father's (Gabriel Byrne) best friend.They divorce and send Ralph to boarding school. Returning home, at 14, Ralph discovers that his father has re-married Ruby (Emily Watson), an American ex-flight attendant. As round a peg as you could find in this square-holed society, Ruby ridicules the petty snobbery of the restless colonials. The chaos of Ralph’s home life combined with the confusion of adolescence and the pending independence of his “homeland” stokes Ralph’s inner turmoil, eventually forging his creative mind."
Now he could be anywhere.

CELEB FLACKS WATCHING THEIR BACKS
LLOYD GROVE WITH KATHERINE THOMSON
'Housewife' is the roast of the town.
Felicity Huffman seems far too nice to roast - but roast her they did Monday night at the Rainbow Room, while raising $350,000 for her Atlantic Theater Company in Chelsea.
"By the end of the night I'll be on a fire escape, smoking and crying 'Everyone hates me!'" the Oscar nominee and "Desperate Housewives" star told Lowdown before her husband, William H. Macy, helped turn her on the spit, with Steve Martin among the celebs in the audience. "I actually am nervous. I was so out-of-body, I walked out of the hotel tonight and the gentleman said, 'Good evening' and I said, 'Good morning!' "
