Letters of Recommendation

Peter Weller (aka Buckaroo Banzai, aka RoboCop) got Woody Allen, Gore Vidal, and Richard Riordan to write him letters of recommendation for grad school:

Two of my three personal recommendations to Syracuse were written by Woody Allen and Gore Vidal. Woody hand wrote in Venice, on Hotel Gritti Palace stationary, ‘Peter Weller is my friend, a fellow actor, writer, director, musician and a credit to his race.’ Gore Vidal was less oblique: Vidal, typing on a an old Remington wrote, ‘I’ve known Weller a long time. He is an extraordinary student … of exactly what I have no idea.’ My third recommendation was written by the ex-Mayor Richard Riordan of Los Angeles.

That’s right, Peter Weller’s in grad school.
