I’ve lived in LA for over ten years and for whatever reason, I am just unlucky when it comes to celebrity sightings. Maybe I’m not hanging out at the right places or it would help if I didn’t have a day job so I could slum around town with all the out of work actors and writers, but I don’t get lucky very often. Today though, I got a super random and awesome sighting. I live in Silverlake and when I find the motivation (which unfortunately, is not as often as I’d like), I’ll head to the reservoir to go on a 2+ mile jog.
On two separate occasions, I’ve seen Chris Parnell, in little running shorts humming along the path. For those who don’t know who I’m talking about, he’s been on SNL forever and has a funny bit role on 30 Rock as Dr. Leo Spaceman. Now Chris isn’t all that famous, so that’s not why it put the smile on my face, it was just so funny seeing him in his little get up hauling ass around Silverlake. I kept thinking about the US Weekly section called “Celebrities are Just Like Us” (or whatever) and I could just imagine the editor looking at an image of Chris running around Silverlake and deciding to toss it aside cuz he’s just not famous enough. I have no idea where I’m going with this blog but big ups to Chris Parnell. Keep rocking those short shorts, keep wearing those oakley shades and keep getting your fitness on, player.
