Here’s a celebrity moment for you. I went to the movies the other night with my wife. We went to see the movie, The
Social Network. This is recently released movie with the story line about the origin and growth of facebook. (it’s a bit fictionalized, but it’s a great story of the twists and turns that accompany a promising start-up business).
The plot line weaves around the swirl of lawsuits being faced by the founder, Mark Zuckerberg. And right there on the big screen serving as the legal counsel to Zuckerberg, I was surprised to see the face of my old fraternity room-mate, John Getz ’68. So a heads up to all of you that that distinguished lawyer-like guy called “Cy” counseling Zuckerberg’s character is a member of the best ever Fiji pledge class at UPS.
Hope you enjoy the movie and remember to lay claim to your fraternity association with John Getz ’68 of Moline, Illinois. John’s a stand-up guy who really contributed to the fraternity before he headed off in the middle of his junior year to pursue professional drama training at The American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco.
His credits run from 18 months in the daytime drama “Another World” to a number of appearances in movies and TV shows. He has a Wikipedia page with more information.
