Ok this might be a funny story

I was having lunch with a friend at the Farmer's Market in Los Angeles. 
And as we were wrapping up a couple people came up to me and asked if I would take a picture with them. 
I did. 
And then as we were getting up to leave, a man came out from one of the pastry counters and asked me, 
"Excuse me sir? Are you from Harry Potter?"

Jenn said...

You don't look anything like that guy...whatever his name is (sorry, not a big harry potter fan.)

total potter nerd,

beff

Amy said...

Funny - you look nothing like Robbie Coltrane. Plus, he's 20+ years older than you.
That's one more example of why I'd never say anything to a celebrity unless I knew exactly who they were.

wait... are you saying you're not from Harry Potter? Why am I still reading this blog?!

Kevin said...

That's hilarious. Thanx for sharing.

Avinash said...

I thought you were the Chinese one from Rush Hour...?

Sym said...

That's hilarious. Thanx for sharing.

Nicole said...

you don't look like Hagrid! LOL

Laura Caçoeiro said...

It must be the hair! :)

Kiss from Portugal

redelf said...

lol I knew it was you playing Snape!!!

Tasha Who? said...

I haven't seen one Harry Potter movie, but wow... Looks like someone needs to do more random IMDB/Wiki searching!

Todd said...

Great, next thing you know people will be writing to you asking for an autograph and saying they loved you in the Harry Potter series. LOL

Meg said...

Did you tell them you played Hermione?

Pam said...

Must've been one of those fans who knew you from "The Italian Job" or whatever show you WEREN'T in? hahaha

Farmer's Market is a great lunch spot.

Britt said...

Harry Potter...

lmfao!!!!

Nacho said...

Are you sure you're not from Harry Potter? Are you 100% positive? Have you made test and all? Are you hiding something from us?

Angelica said...

jajajaja yeah that was funny

Capcom said...

You should play Hagrid's little brother!! Seriously, someone call J.K. and demand that she write you into the last movie. :-) Your Lost fans would love it!

I heart Sirius tooooooooo! And Commissioner Gordon. :-)

Nikki said...

That is funny! I love Harry Potter. I'm such a geek, the movie is on my iPhone for when I am somewhere and bored lol. I'm really looking forward to checking out the new Lost episodes.
Hope you had a great start to the new year.

*Dumbledor'

Stacy said...

ok, that just proves that guy is not a real Harry Potter fan. You don't look like Hagrid.

But that did make me LOL :)

Derek Brink said...

I think that when that happens, you should just say "Yes, that's me" and sign that guy's name as an autograph.

Mary said...

No way. LOL
I agree, you look nothing like Hagrid.
You should have put on a super cheesy British accent and scribbled something completely indiscernible on his napkin. :P

Clay said...

You should have said, "Yes I am!" :D

Nikowa@KHA said...

DUMB AZZ!!!!! LOL!

Roberta said...

LOL!!! That's incredible!

...was this one of those guys you mentioned in your previous post?!?!

Take care dude!

lostinphilly said...

That's funny. You should have said yes and signed that dude's name. It is important to know for sure if the person is a celebrity before you say something. Great story though, lol!!

Rachael said...

You should have said, "No, I was in Fanboys."

www.kate06.skyblog.com said...

lol Funny story indeed xD
I think he mixed up you with Hagrid lol

Justin Shady said...

Wait, but... you WERE THOUGH... right?

Miztification said...

Lol. Nope, I don't see any resemblance at all either. Not only should someone know their actors and filmography, but they might want to pay a visit to Lenscrafters as well. :)

lyly ford said...

lol i guess they thought you were hagrid and i love both you and hagrid so i found it's cute ^^

Mom2haylil said...

A very good example of someone who doesn't think before they speak, or has no idea what he is talking about. Either way- funny.

Jay said...

So happy to have LOST back on!!!!!!!!
I think I will start blogging.?

Jay said...

You are my favorite character. Hugo is childlike, loving, compassionate and funny.

I loved it! Thanks for the laugh this morning. I'm just so glad, to have found this place. I love the show, been watching it faithful since day one. I really loved your version of what happened to your other mother. I woke up the husband just so he could hear your version.
That part is true, and we shouldn't of lied mom. I, also, loved Cheech telling Jack to do him a favor when this is all over to leave my son alone. Hope you don't mind everything in one post.

Becky said...

Oh, this made me laugh! Did they think you were Hagrid? LOL

Mindy said...

Classic. Because the best way to ingratiate yourself is to consider a fictitious half-giant as a possibility.

"You look taller on TV."

And now I'm going to make it worse: We watched Three Amigos tonight, and the first things my boyfriend says is, "Hey look, Hurley's dad is tending bar."

And I said, "What? Is Cheech in this? I don't remember that."

The kids were so annoyed when we finished every line with "Dude."

I would really love to know what did you answer!!

Tammy said...

I kinda hate to tell you about this but I guess you should know. I didn't see anyone else mention them.

With Hagrid I just thought it's only the hair, though yours is much neater. With Rolf I thought "Oh, cute!" I loved the muppets. Don't hate me dude!
