Discussing the George Michael tribute at last night's GRAMMY Awards, "NCIS" star Pauley Perrette remembers how she got her first big break being cast in his music video. Sara Gilbert asks, "One of your first jobs was with George Michael on one of his music videos, right?" Pauley confirms, "Papa Was a Rolling Stone!" Sara continues, "So how did you get the job?" Pauley says, "I was a bartender in New York and this guy... he was an actor, and I had overheard a girl say she made $3000 doing a commercial, and he's like 'I know this director who would love you,' so I went into the yellow pages, found the guy, walked into his office and I was like, with my mohawk, I was like, 'Hey Walter from coatcheck said you'd love me?'...So professional... And then he hired me that day! And he hired me for like, 50 other jobs. So thank you, Walter from coatcheck."
