#Roommates, not even a global pandemic can stop Anthony Anderson from receiving one of the biggest honors in the entertainment industry—an official star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Despite the ongoing rise of COVID-19 in the U.S., Anthony Anderson’s Hollywood Walk of Fame honor is moving forward in a very different way than he originally planned and he will be the first celebrity to do so.
According to @Variety, Anthony Anderson is making history in one of the most unexpected ways—and he has COVID-19 to thank. He is officially the very first person to ever receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the midst of a global pandemic. “I was looking forward to the pomp and circumstance that surrounds anyone getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, because not just anyone can or will get that,” Anthony said.
Anthony initially hoped that he would celebrate with his family and closest friends in the usual high-profile public ceremony that generally accompanies the honor. However, in his words, “unfortunately that type of event can’t happen because of what’s happening in the world right now.”
He has a good attitude about the uncontrollable situation though, saying:
“When the world does open up and when my star is on that Walk of Fame, we will have a party on that star! I will go get a permit to shut down that part of the street, just so we can have our pomp and circumstance, so the fans and the public can enjoy it just as much as me and my family will enjoy it the day that it happens.”
Meanwhile, the Emmy and Golden Globe nominee is gearing up for the next season of his ABC hit sitcom “Black-ish.”
