[Blind Gossip] If you’ve ever been on a movie set, you are familiar with Star Waggons, the trailer rental company.
The founder of the company is an actor named Lyle Waggoner. You might know him as that handsome actor from The Carol Burnett Show and the original Wonder Woman TV series.
Star Waggons trailers are used for everything from makeup to production to classrooms for child actors. Some of the poshest trailers (like the one below) rent for up to $10,000 per week.
Lyle and his son Jason love to tell stories about what is left behind in the trailers and of the special requests to modify trailers. From CNBC:
Everybody from Jennifer Lopez to Will has slept in a Star Waggon.
“We found a big paper bag full of foam rubber breast enhancements … falsies,” said Lyle Waggoner of one trailer returned after a shoot. “For about a week, everybody in the company had a nice bustline. Even the dog had one on his head.”
He recalls that Lou Ferrigno’s trailer from “The Incredible Hulk” came back with green body paint all over the shower. A professional basketball player needed a higher toilet seat, “and we had to do that for him.”
Jason Waggoner said the craziest request Star Waggons has ever received came from an unnamed star who wanted a lap pool inside his trailer. “I think they were testing us,” he said. However, his team went to work and designed a trailer with an indoor pool. “Then we got a call, ‘No, no, no, they’re not going to need the swimming pool this time,” Jason said. “It’s good to know that we have the design for it, just in case.”
