Last night in the city I saw two famous people: Ana Gasteyer
and That Guy (see picture). Ana Gasteyer was standing outside a beauty salon on 49th Street, talking on a cell phone and looking pissed. She's a lot shorter than I thought she was, which means Maya Rudolph
must be really short. That Guy was coming out of the Longacre Theatre
, where we had both just seen Well
, which was fascinating and very strange.
If this had happened in high school, I would have asked around to my most obscure pop culture knowledge having friends, ambiguously describing That Guy and the movies I had seen him in until someone satisfied my curiosity. Since it happened last night, this morning I went searching IMDB for "Julia Stiles" until I found that crappy movie she was in with Freddie Prinze Jr.,
looked at the cast list, and discovered that That Guy is Zak Orth
I'm periodically fascinated by the fact that this wacky Internet can give me That Guy's name in such a short period of time. Granted, my curiosity was satisfied, but I did not have to talk to anyone. I'm not sure whether something has been saved, or lost. So I've posted this, included way too many links, and passed on the time wasting to you.
