Virginia Madsen stars in The Number 23, opening in the USA on February 23, 2007.
As reported in promotional interviews about the movie, Madsen was asked: “How did you learn about the number 23 phenomenon? Virginia, had you heard of the phenomenon?”
Yes, because I think all that stuff is really fun, the shows on the Discovery Channel about ghosts and the Yeti and UFOs, which I totally believe in, so I’d heard about it. But I didn’t know how vast it was until really the first day of production. I’d sort of been online and I came in and there were these beautiful, beautiful roses from Jim, these enormous – with this romantic note, we’re going to have…, “To my beautiful wife…”Virginia Madsen
In my recent discussion of Robert Anton Wilson, here, I noted how the number 23 has become part of the Fortean landscape. Nevertheless, I sure was surprised to hear Yeti being thrown in there during an interview about The Number 23, even if as a mere side remark.
The mention by Madsen of Yeti is cool, and perhaps she’s dropping by to read Cryptomundo once in a blue moon. She has been rather busy. Good luck with the movie!
