I’m cheating a little because I didn’t just watch The Station Agent, but… when I did see The Station Agent for the first time I liked it so much that I looked up the lead, Peter Dinklage. Whenever I see an actor I like in a movie I look up their name and info on the small chance I ever run into them, that I can say, “Hey, you’re Peter Dinklage.” A few years ago James saw another actor from the movie, Bobby Cannavale, at the MOMA Design Store and neither of us could remember his name. So, I went back and really made sure that I knew the three main actors’ names.
All of this is to say that yesterday by Union Square, my coworker turned to me and said, “Hey, that little guy from Elf just walked by.” F*ck! Well New York isn’t that big. Maybe I will see him tomorrow. (For the record, I would probably never actually talk to an actor I saw, but this way I am prepared for the small off chance they decide to talk to me).
