Scene: Baltimore International Airport, 5:30 am
I get in line for security, bleary eyed and tired. I look at the person in front of me and have that "hey I know that guy" feeling. It's Noah Wyle (from ER), but I am tired and my brain is working slowly.
He looks at me and realizes that I recognize him.
"Are you..." I start to ask.
"Yes," he says.
"Oh," I say, "well it's very nice to meet you."
"Nice to meet you as well," he says.
I've met movie stars in the past, my basic policy is to leave them alone, satisfied that I now have a story to tell.
We move along through the line and finally get to the security agent who is checking ID's. Noah Wyle hands her his ID and she looks at him.
"Do I know you?" she asks.
"You might," he responds, "I was on TV."
Completely ignoring what he just said, she says, "I know you from somewhere."
Being a huge movie buff, I stand their and laugh in my head thinking about the fact that this woman thinks she knows him personally and doesn't recognize him as being a TV star.
She hands his ID back and he walks towards the x-ray machine, I hand her my ID and she says, "I know that guy from somewhere."
"That's Noah Wyle," I say, "he was on ER for like a decade."
Completely ignoring what I just said, she shakes her head and says, "I don't know where I know that guy from."
MOVIE LINE OF THE DAY:
"Um... I'm not going to be able to continue this conversation." -Noah Wyle in Donnie Darko
