Celebrity Year In Review
This year, Long Island Weekly interviewed quite a few celebrities, including Sterling K. Brown, Elliot Gould, Bob Saget, Lauren Graham, John Laroquette, LL Cool J, Clinton Kelly, Jacques Pépin and Bobby Moynihan.

You’ve seen them on television, on the red carpet, at book signings and all over social media. They are our favorite celebrities. Sterling K. Brown, Elliott Gould, Bobby Moynihan, John Larroquette, Lauren Graham, LL Cool J, Jacques Pépin, John Leguizamo, Bob Saget, Michael Symon and Clinton Kelly and many others made an appearance in our publications this year, and we couldn’t have been more honored to include them.

Fresh off an Emmy-win for his work in the number one show on television, NBC’s This Is Us, Sterling K. Brown spoke with us about his spot on the hit show and his new movie Marshall. Elliott Gould, everyone’s favorite mensch, is back in primetime with the show 9JKL. Even Bobby Moynihan and John Larroquette chatted with us about teaming up on their show Me, Myself & I.

Everyone’s favorite Gilmore Girl Lauren Graham came out with a new book and was more than happy to talk about her recent return to Stars Hallow as well as the many upcoming projects she has on her plate. LL Cool J performed a duet, talking about some new music and how much fun he is having as the host of Lip Sync Battle.

Everyone’s favorite television father, Bob Saget, came to the NYCB Theatre at Westbury for a night of comedy and proudly talked about his return to Netflix’s Fuller House as Danny Tanner. Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, Al Pacino and Martin Scorcese even came to Mineola to film their latest movie for Netflix, The Irishman.

In the kitchen, our favorite chefs shared delicious recipes with us and what it is about cooking that speaks to them—Michael Symon, Donatella Arpaia, Alex Guarnaschelli and the famed Jacques Pépin.

We rubbed elbows with a lot of celebrities this year, and there’s a whole walk of fame to explore in the year to come.
