Holy Smokes! I cannot believe this is really happening! It just doesn’t seem real that some personal birding adventure from 13 years ago has been a part of what inspired a Hollywood movie. Simply jaw-dropping. Miller Luck in more than just birding? ahaha! How cool is that??!!?! A lot is happening now with interviews with the stars on TV and HBO carrying a First Look at The Big Year (which I hear is quite good–I haven’t seen it yet myself). So if you haven’t had time to catch up with what all is going on, I’ll add a few links here to help you out.
(the whole show–about 40 minutes)
The Tonight Show With Jay Leno – Oct 6, 2011 (includes full interview with Black/Martin/Leno)

And Columbus fans of The Big Year can watch for an article in this Sunday’s Columbus Dispatch. Local fans (near Millersburg, OH) can be listening for a brief interview with me on WJER. NPR listeners can tune in sometime in the near future (as the movie release gets closer) for another interview with me with Mark Urycki of WKSU. I will be attending an advanced screening of the movie on Monday night in Richmond Heights, OH, thanks to tickets from the Akron Beacon Journal. Speaking of Monday, The Big Year trio (Jack Black, Steve Martin, and Owen Wilson) will be on TV with Ellen DeGeneres. And check out the Events tab on this website to see all the upcoming fun!
See you all at the movie!
