I met Don McKellar

Today I got to meet one of my totally fave actors, Don McKellar.

He appeared at my local cinema club’s screening of waydowntown, a Canadian movie that was applauded by critics there in 2000, but looks like it’s coming out in this country at the end of the month.

Not too much to report about the encounter, as anyone who’s ever met anyone famous knows, it’s not like you know each other and can have a real conversation, but I did ask him about the Degrassi movie he was in (“How did you see that?”) and even dropped the name of someone we know in common (I’m so slick). It was pretty exciting, though. One of his early movies, Highway 61, totally struck a chord with me, and has remained with me ever since.
