Hollywood Harmeyer took center stage Monday morning as Howard told listeners about a brand-new special available for his fans to watch: “JD’s Celebrity Encounters,” a nearly 20-minute video montage featuring many of staffer JD Harmeyer’s most infamous run-ins with A-listers while working on the Stern Show.

The video shows JD interacting with over a dozen Hollywood heavyweights, including Emmy winner Jennifer Aniston, rap legend Snoop Dogg, talk show host Samantha Bee, reality star Khloe Kardashian, comedian Seth Rogen, TV personality Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino, and master thespian Bryan Cranston, who memorably delivered a spot-on Harmeyer impression at Howard’s star-studded 2014 Birthday Bash. The video also explores JD’s very first celebrity friendship, which began with actor Ryan Phillippe dropping by the studio for a chat and quickly resulted in the two of them enjoying a night out together on the town.

“Phillippe has been a good friend,” JD said.

“Congratulations on your special,” Howard concluded while encouraging listeners to check it out for themselves on the SiriusXM app.
