@juiceortiz replied to your post “I’m waiting for Theo Rossi’s event. I just saw him cross the street….”
omg!! please tell all about it!!
For starters, I thought I would be more composed. In fact, you could say I was not at all. The very nice guy in the comic book shop told me to breathe and reminded me not to faint in the store.
This event was poorly marketed and I only heard about it because I follow him on instagram, so the turnout was kind of poor. It was a marketing campaign event for schick razors, and there was a guy there DRESSED LIKE A GIANT RAZOR. I shit you not. If you told me that my first time meeting Theo Rossi would be me and him trying to have a conversation while a giant razor tried to shave me, i would say “that’s a fucking weird dream.”
Theo is honestly so nice and genial and he took his time talking to everybody. We made small talk while my brain was processing, “Theo Rossi is looking at me in my face. My face is in his face. This is fucking weird. There’s a giant razor with legs and arms staring at us.”
He took my camera and held on to it while they took like marketing photos, and he took selfies of us and he’s like keep talking while i take pictures. So i asked him about Lucy Liu and what it was like working with her. He said she’s amazing. I asked him about Alfre Woodward and he gushes about her. I ask him about Shady Mariah, and he’s like the dynamic of that relationship is so unique, and in the next season it’s going to go to another level. (I’m summarizing and paraphrasing… he’s staring at me and i’m trying not to lose my shit) He’s like after I watch the premiere to DM him on twitter, and I was like, yup golly! oh gee! i will do that! He’s honestly so fucking nice. And there was a lot of hugging. He gives really good hugs. I honestly cannot believe this happened.
I’m planning on seeing him again at NYCC, but this time I will bring a list of questions so I don’t forget! I want to know more about Lucy Liu’s directing, and more META-Y questions about Shades and Mariah. OH AND ALSO SONS OF ANARCHY. I didn’t even get to touch on that… because I’m over there weeping.
I got some coupons for free razors too so that was kinda nice.
