Adam West should already have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s surprising that he doesn’t. A lot of lesser luminaries have been honored on the sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street.
In addition to being famous enough to qualify, a celebrity also has to pay for the construction and installation of their star. Many times a movie studio will pay for a star when an actor’s new film is released. Mark & Brian got a star on their tenth anniversary at KLOS. The radio station paid for it.
Adam’s fans are rallying around him. A filmmaker named James Tooley is making a documentary to raise awareness for the cause. He is trying to raise $30,000 to fund the film by Friday at 1:21 p.m. EDT. Potential donors are only charged if the goal is reached by the deadline. As of Tuesday night, they have less than $8,000 to go. Donations over $25 earn a mention in the DVD’s credits.
