Can You Believe HBO’s Oz debut in 1997???

Oz is back on HBO! Well, kinda….

HBO began running repeats of Oz over the weekend. Can you believe it has been over 10 years since Oz debut on HBO??? Do you realize Oz was the first one-hour drama ever produced by HBO?

I am sure you remember Adebisi, Warden Leo Glynn, Miguel Alvarez, Augustus, Kareem Said, Tobias, Vern Schillinger, Sister Peter Marie, Ryan and Cyril O’Reily, The Poet, Dr. Gloria Nathan, and Chris Keller.

Reflecting back on the cast members, Oz showcased and launched the careers of many well-know actors. Many of the actors who played inmates on the show also played police officers on other series. In fact, Oz starred four cast members of “Law and Order: SVU” including Christopher Meloni, Dean Winters, B.D. Wong, and J.K. Simmons. Other notable actors that have appeared on Oz include Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mummy 2), David Zayas (Dexter), Dean Winters, Edie Falco (Sopranos), Edward Herrmann, Ernie Hudson, Harold Perrineau (Lost), Kirk Acevedo, Lee Tergesen, Method Man, Rick Fox, Rita Moreno (Ugly Betty), Sandra ‘Pepa’ Denton of Salt and Pepa, and Luke Perry (Jeremiah).

T-Mobile Sidekick LX Tony Hawk Edition Launch Party

T-Mobile Sidekick LX Tony Hawk Edition Party

I had the pleasure of joining some of Hollywood’s best at one of the summer’s hottest action sports extravaganza. The invite-only event celebrated the history of skateboarding, skateboarding culture and street art including an exhibit “Life is Beautiful” by Los Angeles graffiti provocateur Mr. Brainwash.

Celebrities in attendance included Perez Hilton, Laurin Conrad, Mini Me, DJ Loli, Wendy Williams, Emile Hirsch, Christina Milian, Audrina Patridge, Heidi Montag, Chris Evans Cheryl Burke, Tila Tequila, Kelis, AJ & Aly, Matthew Perry, Jamie Kennedy, Kourtney Kardashian, David Zayas, Tara Reid and a special performance from Stone Temple Pilots singing some of their most memorable hits.

Party goers where treated to a roster of up-and-coming DJ stars, including Devin Lucien, Adam12 and StoneRokka. Skaters Tony Alva, Steve Olson, Christian Hosoi, and Alex Olson showed off their tricks on a half-pipe build outside while DJ’s Chad Muska and Scott Oster showed off their skills both on the turntables and the skate ramp. When not enjoying the scenery or open bar, party-goes also had an opportunity to eat at the IN-N-OUT Burgers, Hot Dog on A Stick, or the Taco Truck parked outside.

Similar to the T-Mobile party last year where Kayne West performed, all in all this was a great event.
