Missed Opportunities

When you work on a studio lot, you see people you may not see elsewhere.  When they were shooting Rush Hour 3, I saw Jackie Chan rolling around on a segway all the time.  (Of course, I wasn’t allowed to rollerblade on the lot, because it was too dangerous.)

The other day, I passed Larry Miller in the hall.  I didn’t recognize him, but I could tell by his expression that I had that “I recognize this dude but I don’t have any idea why” face.  If he had said something (like, “We’re driving to Florida!” maybe), I totally would have recognized his voice from the Adam Carolla Show.  Later on, I was kicking myself, ’cause he’s really funny and I would’ve said so.

Today was worse.  I passed the show runner of a successful show that I greatly admire.  He had a big smile on his face, and he said, “Hi, how are you?”

All I said was, “Good,” and went on my way.  Man!

I even had something to talk to the guy about.  He spoke at my alma mater on Monday, and I had intended to go, but I was held up at work.  That right there is something I can build some small talk out of, which would then be a basis to chat this guy up in the future.  But, like a dumbass, I thought bringing a banana to the AD on set was more important.

ARGH.
