Dear Bob Gunton...

Dear Bob Gunton…

As I’m sure you’ll agree, it was a pleasure to meet at the Atlanta International Airport a little over a week ago. I hope you don’t mind me saying so, but as handsome as you appear on 24 and in the Shawshank Redemption, you were even more striking in real life. Once again, I apologize for so eagerly approaching you. As a blogger with tens of readers and a yeast biochemist with ones of individuals who are familiar with my research, believe me, I know what it is like to be harassed by the adoring masses.

Thank you for the sage advice to continue to “tune in to 24” for “another exciting season” and to “keep cheering for Ethan” (your character, the Chief of Staff to the President of the United States). Had our encounter not been so late at night, I’m sure we both would have had more interesting things to ask and say to each other.

Below is the picture we took in the airport. I figured you’d want it for your scrapbook or facebook page (which, oddly enough, I couldn’t find—please be sure to add me as a friend as soon as possible!).

I’ve told all my friends about our chance (nay, fated) encounter. I’m sure you have as well. Keep up the great work, and I’ll do the same.

Keep in touch,
Yajeev

P.S. I was so glad to see that you were completing sudoku puzzles on the plane. They say it really helps to keep the brain sharp.

Dear VJ...
I certainly would have thought that Bob Gunton would have recognized you, first...forget the blogger and yeast researcher...certainly he should have recognized you from all the commercials you did for places like Conneaut Lake Park and particularly Belmont Pines Hospital, where you starred as the "healed" kid and were hugged by a professional actor
with the hospital's logo sorta over your face.

AND ALSO...
I was kinda taken aback by your adoration of this "character" actor! You certainly never got that excited meeting the real Barney, Gomer Pyle, Mrs. Brady, Ronald McDonald, The Mystical Magical Burger King and JOHNNY CASH!

In fact, as I recall, you cried when Johnny Cash picked you up in his arms! Don't you remember?

I thought the guy on the right side of the picture looked a lot like Russ Parker and the fellow on the left a lot like me.

And, in parting, I would ask you to continue to tune in to "Sempre Ubi Sub Ubi" now in its 43rd season!

Love'n'laughter,
Jumps'n'jiggles
Your favorite Dad

PS...you should have asked him if his real name was Gutman, in which case he would have been Jewish!

This blog post will certainly boost Bob's star status.

When are you getting the goatee back?

yajeev said...

Russ, a model post is coming.

Dad, but this doesn't beat meeting Lex Luger or Sgt Slaughter.

Andy, it'll be after the holidays.

As I know, he signed on as series regular afterward and reprised the role of Kanin but now as the Chief of Staff to the new President, Allison Taylor, in the show's seventh season as well as the two hour television prequel movie, 24: Redemption

I thought Gunton played Warden Samuel Norton, the head of Shawshank State Prison and the primary antagonist in The Shawshank Redemption opposite Tim Robbins.
