I have tried searching for this with no luck.

I'm trying to compile a list of celebrities that perform magic as a hobby.
(NOT looking for a one-off kind of thing like Celebracadabra).

Some that I am aware of:

Johnny Carson
Steve Martin
Muhammed Ali

Please try to include some kind of reference.

I'm hoping for a kind of...WOW! I didn't know that...interesting.

Thanks

Mark

Matthew Gray Grubler should be added to the list. He is 40.

What is his claim to fame? Not sure who this is.

He was in almost every single episode of Criminal Minds from 2005 through 2020 to start with. It might well be the case he was in every episode I'm not certain. It was one of the most popular TV crime crqma series ever.

Thanks Danny.

I have never seen that show, that would explain why I never heard of him!

I think most of the ones that would come into Hollywood Magic have been mentioned. Also Nicholas Cage can be on that list.

Wow! Great list, some interesting names for sure. Joey Fatone and Willie Nelson stand out...at least to me.

That was my thought, too... A bunch a' fogies!

All jokes aside, it makes sense since most celebs are grown adults, but the art form is ready for a youthful injection!
All about borrowed coins.

Perhaps if the youth were to inject something useful, interesting and unique that may help?

Bravado simply is not enough.

Larry Wilmore as well. Almost forgot about him. I will say that many of them were younger when I met them. Nic Cage came into the shop one night MANY years ago when he was around 20, dressed in tattered jeans, t shirt and motorcycle jacket. He looked like some random guy off the street. He hung out for a while and ended up getting several hundred dollars worth of Johnson coins which was a reasonably large purchase at the time. It was only when he pulled out his platinum AMEX card did I recognize the name “Nicholas Coppola Cage”.

Arsenio Hall has been talking quite a bit this last week as he’s promoting Coming To America 2 that he started as a magician.
