I'll trade you an Alan Alda for a Tom Skerritt...

It turns out that some celebrities outsource fan requests for signed photos to a company called Studio Fan Mail. The company is forwarded the request by the celeb's handlers or receives the request directly from fans, like you! (The celebrity pays Studio Fan Mail for the service.)

I found a discussion about this at Red Forum Deals. Someone posted a list of all the celbs to whom you can request a photo.

To request a photo from, say, Alan Alda, send an e-mail to alanalda@studiofanmail.com with your mailing address in the body of the message. (No subject line required. No formal request required.)

The company has an automated computer system that extracts your mailing address and mails the signed photo to you in a month or so. To see the list of celebs, visit the discussion forum at Red Forum Deals and scroll down the page.

"Ayyyyyyyyyyy!"

does this have anything to do with Montreal? Or are you posting this so as to make Quebec a better place by providing all the die-hard and frustrated francophone fans a substitute for Forum Rouge?

Not true. It is done manually.
