Alec Baldwin + Murray Waas + Richard Nixon = Awesome

Posted in: Dirt, Whine & Cheese

In the mid-70s, Murray and Alex, two young and bright George Washington University students, worked diligently to hone their impersonations of Richard Nixon.

The friends would make prank phone calls in front of an audience of their neighbors in the GW dorm, battling to see who could more accurately portray the disgraced president.

In one classic session, they took turns phoning a bunch of Nixons listed in a California phone book, telling the bewildered residents their “cousin Dick” had recently moved back to the area and just wanted to call and say hi.

Those two notorious pranksters grew up to become giants in their own right: award-winning investigative journalist Murray Waas and famed actor Alec Baldwin.

More than wildly unsubstantiated rumor, I know the above to be absolutely true.  But I was just reminded of it after hearing a curious and unverified account of a more recent Waas brush with celebrity Sheryl Crowe.

Waas was rumored to have been seen hitting on Sheryl Crowe at the Huffington Post’s pre-inaugural party last month.  Some have said the pair also spent a few moments making out, but Waas reportedly denies it.

    Very interesting post…

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely…
