today at the dog park this familiar face came in with a black labbish looking dog and a gorgeous skinny blond. i was staring at him thinking, “shit did i work with that guy? how the hell do i know him?” it occurred to me that i couldn’t so easily forget a guy that cute and so he’s probably part of my “fake” life … my fantasy life of TV and film. then it dawned on me, it’s tom mccarthy, the dude who played scott templeton, the weasely reporter guy on the wire!! googled when i got home to discover he’s going to direct HBO’s forthcoming”game of thrones” . Based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels, “Thrones” is described as an epic struggle for power set in a vast and violent fantasy kingdom. “Thrones” is slated to film in the third quarter in Belfast, Northern Ireland. sounds rad. like Nerd of the Rings, I mean lord of the rings. what is it about me and the rufe running into HBO dudes on friday nights? i hope larry david is next!
