You know how Saturday Night Live used to go to commercial by showing random people in the audience with humorous captions underneath? When Anthony Perkins hosted, back on March 13, 1976, at one point they showed a dude in the audience, over the caption ROOMED WITH WENDY YOSHIMURA - and it was our old friend George Plimpton.
That couldn't have been coincidence, could it? I doubt it. Lorne Michaels was always too invested in having celebrity friends, and Plimpton too concerned about being seen in all the proper New York spots, for it to be happenstance. I'm pretty sure they would have set it up beforehand.
This little incident does not merit a mention either in Live From New York or in George, Being George, the Plimpton oral biography. I guess I'm the only one who cares, which wouldn't be the first time.
No, I have no idea who Wendy Yoshimura was.
