Need to write a letter to someone famous? Give them a phone call, perhaps. It's not always easy, but sometimes, it's not too hard, either. Here are some tricks to try.
Start With the Phone Book
Yeah, sometimes it's just that simple. You won't find Britney Spears or Brad Pitt in the White Pages. But a whole host of other famous folks are listed. Supreme Court Justices. TV news reporters. Senators and Congressmen/women. Sports stars.
Phone book listings are especially common for the suddenly-famous. Those who are comfortably obscure one day, and then find themselves in the national spotlight the next (remember Joe the Plumber?).
Take a look at the residential searching at SuperPages.com to start exploring celebrity contact information.
The Internet Movie Database, more affectionately known as IMDB, is a gold mine of free information on movie and TV stars. But if you want contact information (which usually means their agents, rather than the stars themselves), then you'll need to subscribe to IMDBPro at secure.imdb.com. But don't despair -- they have a free trial offer if you just want to give it a test run.
Look in Free Celebrity Directories
Free celebrity directories? Are there such a thing. Well, there are... sort of.
Do a Google search for 'The Celebrity Black Book 2005' (no need for actual quotes). The first few search results should include links to the book at Amazon.com and at Google Books. Both these sites will let you search the content of the book, and see many of the listing it contains. Once at the page featuring the book, just use the 'search inside the book' feature to search on the celebrity's name, and see what pops up. If one site doesn't do the trick, try the other.
Settle for the B List
If none of those strategies work, then look me up. I'm a semi-famous B-list (OK...C List...ummm....D list...er...Z list) type of guy.
Hey, it's better than nothing.
