Celebrity EntourageHollywood producer and director Barry Sonnenfeld must love his job. The "Men In Black" producer says his favorite gadget is his 1,000-watt handheld Wicked laser.
"Any time you buy a product that says 'Caution: Do not aim at satellites,' you know you're on to something. I spent almost seven months directing 'Men in Black 3' in New York, and the only thing that gave me as much joy as working with Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and Josh Brolin, (and directing from a saddle, which is my want), is having lasers on the set. I had a deep blue one, which I gave to Will's son Trey, and a 300-watt green one that I gave to Will's son Jaden. But I'm looking forward to bringing my 1,000-watt green one to Telluride, Colo., for New Year's, aim it across a few miles to the top of Mount Wilson, and see if I can start a New Year's Eve avalanche. The real test is to see if I can light up the La Sal mountain range, about 60 miles, but still closer than satellite distance away. Strange, but true."
