The New "Pixels" Movie

Be sure to see the new movie, “Pixels”, starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Peter Dinklage, and Michelle Monaghan - it opens in theaters Friday, July 24th. I am happy to make a cameo appearance in one of the scenes.

Directed by filmmaker, Chris Columbus, the movie follows an attack on the Earth when aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war. Then, to save the world, it's up to the unlikeliest heroes - the guys who played the games as kids. They take on such videogame characters as Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Frogger, Q-bert, Space Invaders, and Centipede.

My cameo appearance was taped nearly a year ago in Toronto, Canada. Led by Happy Madison Productions, the one-day shoot was well organized and lots of fun. World class tennis player, Serena Williams, joined me in the appearance, which was staged inside a room of the “White House”.

Last night, I attended “Women of Pixels” - a dinner celebrating the action comedy. The event was held at New York City’s Upland restaurant. I was honored to curate the evening’s delicious menu. Here are some of the photos. Enjoy.
