A leaf on the wind

Me and the cute guy above, oh yeah. That is Alan Tudyk and he was a guest at the science fiction convention I was at this past weekend. I have a small 'brag'. On friday night there was a dinner banquet and afterwards he came around to some of the tables and was chatting with us.

As he reached our table I was trying to think of what to say. Well, he practically fed me the line. In a very natural voice, like he was talking to a long time friend, he said to me "oh man, Joss's new show is starting right now!" I chuckled, leaned towards him and asked why he didn't pull his iphone out and use that to program his direct tv from it. It was a great moment. His face lit up and he laughed and he is a lot cuter in real life than on screen.

The reason I said that particular line is because of this new commercial he is in for Direct tv, when during a bank robbery his friend is using the phone to make sure they don't miss a show. I saw the commercial a few times before I realized it was Alan (and the sidekick from Pysch too).

The next day when Alan was signing autographs, I got this picture taken with him. He was a wonderful guest star and very personable.
