I went down for a late lunch to Jo's diner on 2nd Street last week after the SXSW crowds died down (having a bad day at work, needing some good karma), and in front of me in line were Josh Homme and Dean Fertita (QOTSA).  (It's a little strange standing right next to two people you've seen perform live in some large venue at some point in your life.)  Nobody else was there so when they were done ordering a couple of teas, my impulsive instinct took over I asked if I could get their check ("I'm a fan" is all I said).  They seemed surprised, made a joke, shook my hand, and said thanks; but I was still wondering whether it was a jerk move - I'm sure they just want to be left alone.

How can getting someone else's check ever be considered a jerk move?

Worked two days with an actor named Daniel Cudmore, a giant of a man and real cool too. Very off-the-cuff funny. At the end, he asked for a sharpie so he could sign a DVD for the director. The DVD was X-Men 2 and he signed it Colossus.

Nice! Best X-Men movie by far. He has a great moment in it too.

Shiri Appleby at the farmers market. Just watched the latest episode of UnREAL last night and she really looked like she just stepped right out of the show. Ha.

Just a parking space but I'm counting it.

Is that the actual guy or is it André Sorkin who works as an accountant for Paramount?

This thread reminds me last year I sat three seats away from Costa-Gavras in a small theater (the film was Alphaville). That was neat.
