During the Oscars on Sunday night, Jimmy Kimmel brought out a lot of surprises for the audience.
One of the major surprises was a group of tourists he brought to the show. The tour bus stopped at the Academy Awards and Kimmel gave the unsuspecting guests a moment to remember.
The tourist who stole the show at the Oscars was “Gary from Chicago”. We’re now finding out that he was released from prison just three days before the show. That’s right, just before he was hanging out with Denzel Washington, Gary was incarcerated.
His full name is Gary Alan Coe and he did 20 years in the California prison system, according to TMZ, for committing multiple felonies.
While in prison he met his fiancee, Vickie. Both live in California now, but he’s a Chicago native and has become a celebrity himself. Since appearing at the Oscars, the Chicago Bulls offered him tickets and he even got an offer for free pizza from a local eatery.
Here’s hoping Denzel officiates the wedding between him and Vickie.
