We’re also offering a walk on role with Johnny Depp in the thriller about J. Edgar Hoover’s hunt for John Dillenger, PUBLIC ENEMIES ($32,000), the tennis lesson with Andre Agassi ($57,500), meeting Owen Wilson at the premiere of MARLEY AND ME ($1,800), tea with former Federal Reserve Chair Alan Greenspan ($11,000), and all the lunches, set visits, and more with the likes of Chris Matthews ($2,550), Tim Russert ($1,550), Joe Scarborough ($3,050), Larry King ($1,300), Tom Brokaw ($4,500), Tom Friedman ($1,252), and other DC political news heavyweights.
