At tonightâ€™s Hollywood Salon, you can.
Did you know there was a Nebraskan on the editing staff for THE FORTY YEAR OLD VIRGIN, TALLADEGA NIGHTS, STEP BROTHERS, and THE BEAVER (the new film directed by Jodie Foster, starring Mel Gibson)?
You will meet him at tonightâ€™s Salon also. Along with a talented theatre director, a Shakespearean trained actor and very nice guy from Omaha.Â (OK, heâ€™s the same guy).
The August Hollywood Salon will introduce you to feature editor Michael Hofacre.Â See www.nebraskacoast.com for details on Mikeâ€™s long-overdue return to the Salon tonight.
And for those of you who were wondering when weâ€™d see Holly & Raider back at a Salon…tonightâ€™s the night!Â This Nebraska couple is one of our sweetheart stories — they married after meeting at a Salon.Â And theyâ€™re about to move back to Nebraska together, so come help us give them a proper NCC send-off tonight!

Alexander Payne is not only an Academy Award-winning Screenwriter, Director and Producer, he is also a Nebraskan, who’s made many of his movies back home. Â And, no surprise, one of our most popular Salon guests.
Before he won the Oscar for Sideways, before About Schmidt and Election and Citizen Ruth…there was THE PASSION OF MARTIN. Â The story of a photographer who falls in love with one of his subjects, this 50-minute dark comedy was Alexander’s UCLA film thesis. Â It became a Sundance Film Festival selection and the film that put him on track to becoming one of Hollywood’s major players.
