Alissa Anne May (? - present)

Trivia (6)

Met his wife, the former Alissa May, on the set of "The Curve." She was a makeup and hair assistant and he was the dolly grip, the classic film set hookup.
Has a 4 second cameo in the film, "The Curve." He was standing by camera during a locked-off shot when the director suddenly decided to make a last moment change in the scene and yelled, "someone run in there!" Cesar threw his tool belt to the ground and ran into the frame. He can be seen running across the quad at Johns Hopkins University in a wide establishing shot.
His wife also has a cameo scene in "The Curve." She was an extra in the café/bookstore scene, and can be seen for the first second (perhaps slightly less) as the camera pushes past her and into the adjacent room. She's the blond girl on the left side of the screen, seated at a table.
Cesar has freakishly good balance and can balance almost anything he can pick up on his nose, chin, elbows and feet.
Purchased and in the process of renovating a large home with a view in Saugerties, New York. He also owns rental property in NYC in the Hell's Kitchen area. [July 2001]
