Meeting Randy Harrison

One of the guests I recently booked on the TV show was actor Randy Harrison.

He was in Tucson as part of the cast of the touring musical production of Cabaret. He's done a ton of stage production work, but he's probably best known for his portrayal of Justin Taylor on Queer As Folk. That show had it's run on Showtime from 2000-2005.

My co-workers weren't impressed, but I fan girled a bit because I watched almost every episode of Queer As Folk when it was new. I even added Showtime to my cable package so I could see it every Sunday. I owned the first season on DVD but I loaned it to somebody back in the day and I never got it back. (thanks for nothing, Ernie)

He was extremely polite and it was fun chatting with him for a few minutes. He spent most of his time once we got past the pleasantries reading a book on his Kindle waiting for his time on TV. It probably wasn't as exciting for him to meet me as it was for me to meet him.

You figure out which is which.
