RYAN SEACREST IS ON THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH CONAN O’BRIEN TONIGHT
This vintage pic of TV and Media personality, Ryan Seacrest, doesn’t necessarily make Ryan stand out from the pack at first glance, when Seacrest was once a college freshman.
However, although Seacrest is still snubbed by the #1 celebrity at the top of the class, Ms. Angelina Jolie. Angie has walked past Seacrest on the red carpet at the Oscars for two years running now; the world’s most famous humanitarian actress can perhaps be forgiven for not knowing who he actually is! With six children, and being a working mom, Angelina doesn’t watch TV much.
This one entertainment fact, still does not detract from Seacrest’s rising star power this year.
He’s on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien tonight, and he’s well worthy of his media platform. It should be a great interview, make sure you watch it. Here’s Ryan’s tweet while waiting for the show’s taping: “in dressing room at conan show. the toilet water is blue.” Riveting stuff Ryan! Anyway,
here’s what Forbes Magazine, who ranks Seacrest as the #44 Celebrity this year with influence, says about him and his ranking in 2009:
“The hardest-working man in entertainment: hosts American Idol, a top 40 radio countdown, E! News and other red-carpet events, plus ABC’s New Year’s Eve special. In addition to lucrative deals with both ClearChannel Radio and the Comcast Entertainment Group, he develops and produces TV shows, including E’s Keeping up with the Kardashians and NBC’s Momma’s Boys. Has endorsement deals with Proctor & Gamble and Coca-Cola.”
Ryan’s rise to fame, is noted by many industry top professionals, like Jerry Penacoli of Xtra TV. He recalls how Ryan spent many hours soaking up like a sponge all of Jerry’s tips on interviewing A-List stars, and the art of doing quality in depth interviews with the world’s most loved people. Perhaps Ryan should, return for these tutorials with Jerry Penacoli again. I notice that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt readily give interviews to Jerry, indicating that one can never stop learning from a great, as Ryan’s career has always shown.
Congrats Ryan and good luck with Conan tonight?! You inspire us all in Hollywood!
