Celebrity Guests: Peter Reigert from “Animal House.”

peter_reigertI enjoyed my stay at the Hampton Terrace very much.  The beds alone are worth the visit.  Perfectly located and warmly suited, I look forward to getting another chance to visit.   All the best and regards to Susan.”

A couple of you were astute enough to notice Peter Reigert in the party picture we shared in the Ray Abruzzo post.   Yes…this is Boon from Animal House, whose girlfriend was Karen Allen (she lives in the Berkshires!).

Although Peters’ face became instantly recognizable because of Animal House, he has been in over 75 movies and television series, including M*A*S*H, Crossing Delancey, The Mask, Law & Order, The Sopranos, Damages, Gypsie and One Tree Hill.

karen_peterPeter was actually back in the area this month for a movie premier in Great Barrington…”White Irish Drinkers.”   He stars in this movie, along with….Karen Allen!

Peter lives in New York and seemed very familiar with the Berkshires.   Like Ray Abruzzo, on the occasion of his stay at Hampton Terrace he was appearing in David Black’s “An Impossible Life.”
