Don't you just hate it when you're a big fan of a celebrity and someone you know is lucky enough to meet them but had no idea who they are? Well that happened to me when my girlfriend's daughter Lily returned from a trip to New York City. She wanted to go to Toys 'R' Us in Times Square but her friend wanted to go to Brodaway where Bryan Cranston just opened up playing LBJ in All The Way at the Neil Simon Theater.

Her friend was a huge fan of Bryan Cranston, as well she should be. After portraying Walter White in Breaking Bad he has become a mega star, and for good reason. He was brilliant in that show.

Lily apparently got dragged to Broadway to get a glimpse of Bryan without knowing anything other than he was some actor. She did grab her cell phone and shot video of Bryan being very friendly with fans and signing autographs. I have a lot of respect for actors who are gracious and humble to their fans.

I may have missed out on this brush with greatness from Breaking Bad but I did have one with Aaron Paul back in 1999 before he was famous at the Price is Right.

The Price is Right

That's me in the green checkered on the left shirt 15 years younger and 20 pounds heavier and that's Arron Paul about to bid on a desk. I'll tell you more about that story later.
