Celeb Interviews: Jade Calegory, Mac and Me

mac and me Well this is super exciting for me.  My favourite movie growing up was Mac and Me.  The movie is about Eric, a young boy in a wheelchair who has just moved to a new neighbourhood and a lost and scared alien, Mac who is also new to the neighbourhood and planet.  Mac and Eric become good friends trying to dodge the evil people at NASA who want Mac for experimental purposes.   For me, this was a movie that I could literally and figuratively watch over and over again.  So I am sooo very excited that Jade Calegory (the man who played Eric) was able to answer our celeb questionnaire.

1) What is your favourite 90’s sitcom?
Seems like a lifetime ago and nothing is really ringing a bell. Even now though I don’t really watch a lot of sitcoms, I mostly am into things like Hells Kitchen or No Reservations. Oh wait I do like Glee too.

2) Do you own any music by Rita MacNeil?

Nope… Am I missing out? (HELL YA YOU ARE!!)

3) Do you have any nicknames?
JRide and Onyx

4) Do you have a favourite youtube video?  If so, what?
Not a favorite video but I do have favorite channels. I was addicted to equals three and sexephil but have gone to youtube rehab and now only watch occasionally..

5) Do you have a favorite hat? If so please describe or send us a photo of you wearing said hat.
I wish I did. I love hats but every time I try one on I never seem to be able to pull it off, it’s sad.

6) Do you have any hidden talents? If so, please describe, or send us a video of you demonstrating said talent.
Tragically nothing like tying a cherry stem into a knot with my tongue but I did become pretty good with wheelchair stunts like launching the chair off flights of steps. I don’t know if that’s a talent though or just being a kid with a few screws loose.

I hope this helps and thanks for the honor of being apart of your blog!  (That’s right he feels honored to be part of our blog…so all you celebs out there that haven’t  gotten back to us yet…take some notes for the amazing actor/designer Jade Calegory..and get on it!)

    • Thanks for the comment, Ass. Clearly you were googling something to do with Mac and Me which obviously means you are a closet Mac & Me fan. It’s cool. I often bash super amazing people, places or things. Yesterday I said, I just hate perogies. Clearly I love perogies…it’s just a coping mechanism I use.. to keep me from eating them all the time. We are here for you, Ass, if you want to talk.

  5. Very disappointed with the questions asked. I have been wondering what happened to Jade and was excited when I found this …. Until I read it. No questions about what he is doing now, why he didn’t continue acting, what the movie experience was like, is he married ….I still don’t know anything relevant really. Oh well, maybe one day someone else will interview him.

  6. How does Jade pronounce his last name? Is it “CAL-e-gor’ee” (like ‘category’) or “ca-LEG-o-ree” (like ‘Gregory’)? Or is it something else altogether?
