Was the big deal? The movie was 99% about his days at WCCC and WNBC - Jackie got there at the tail end.
Adam can you please make it to New York on November 18th for Emily Stern's art exhibit?
You dont have to worry about Howard being there. It will be past his bed time.
you need the tough guy door-bell view of Howard ready to kick some ass right about now.
Jackie was in the movie?
What was the great memorable Jackie moment we'd have been cheated out of if he was left out.
They should have left John and Gary out too.
The E show exposed us to Jackie feeding Howard jokes.
Before that it was never addressed.
LOL I wish, I'll be lucky if I get to Vegas by the end of the year.
During the failed FOX pilot shows Jackie was under Howards desk feeding him lines.
Without Jackie, there is no howard.
That was always weird to me that it wasn't really talked about before then.
Jackie would just be mute for hours at a time, I'd wonder wtf he was doing if I never knew he wrote the lines.
Well, there's a Howard, but he never gets more famous than some morning zoo douche doing his '50 Ways to Rank Your Mother' bits and hocking albums with his corny bits from the back of Fred's trunk.
The importance of this story has little to do with the possibility that Jackie could have been left out of the Private Parts movie 20 years ago. As you rightly point out, such a decision could have been easily justifiable at the time. No, this article is meaningful because it's yet another tiny addition to the groundswell of less than complimentary articles we've seen emerging lately on the topic of Howard Stern.
The self imagined emperor is losing his clothes at a rapid rate now.
"Private Parts marked Stern’s first and only starring role in a feature film, performing modestly with $41.2 million in box office revenues, making it the 56th top-grossing film of the year, according to BoxOfficeMojo."
- Now THAT'S the funniest part of the movie.
He was in the 'Match Game' scene. That's all I remember.
I really hated that stupid wannabe-Lifetime movie, always have, and I literally had an IV pumping the kool-aid directly into my veins on a 24/7 basis at that time.
Production Budget: $28 million
Opening Weekend: $14,616,333
Ok and the movie's plot is almost entirely about his life before going #1 at NBC and beating Imus. It's a 90 minute movie and Jackie didn't enter in the picture until well after he starts at WNBC.
Funny, Howard has no problem now letting Benji take credit for feeding him jokes. In fact, when Benji proclaimed that on the air once, it seemed Howard wanted to make sure Benji got credit for all the comedy on the show these days. I wonder why. #Howardonlywantsallthecreditwhentheshowisfunny
