What?  You've never heard of the Greystone mansion?  It's been featured in many films like Stripes, Ghostbusters, X-Men, There Will Be Blood, and The Big Lebowski.  It's Jeffrey Lebowski's mansion.  Interestingly, it was built by an oil tycoon around the time that There Will Be Blood was supposed to take place and the bowling alley exists in the basement.  It is currently owned by the City of Beverly Hills and there is a lot of land surrounding the mansion with an admission free park.  If you're going to Lebowski Fest LA, you should probably stop by.

Here's a great interview with Gabriel Byrne.  He played Tom Reagan in Miller's Crossing.  The article is pretty long, but if you search for "Coen" you'll find what you're looking for pretty quickly.  I'd say Byrne is one of the better Irish actors alive today.  If you have seen much of his stuff, you should see what he's done on IMDB and go rent some movies tonight.

I wasn't sure who Chris Hardwick was, but after seeing his picture I definitely recognized him.  Turns out his dad was a professional bowler and a famous one at that.  His dad also was the first professional athlete to do a beer commercial.  Check out the video below.
