Have we met before?
Two years ago I performed a backyard wedding for a widow and his girlfriend. The best man was his son. He just looked familiar. Have you seen this man?
Yep, you guessed it, Larry Wilcox, the motorcycle cop, the straight man in the late 70s and early 80s TV series CHiPs. I did not even watch the show regularly but something in that marvelous data base we call the brain made a connection that told me I had seen this man before. I just checked out the IMBD on him and he had quite a TV appearance career there for about a decade or so. He was always trying to keep the latino Poncherello from jumping the gun, the calm one.
I don't think he became independently wealthy in acting, couple of failed marriages but his kids and dad still loved him. So do I, we connected in a nice way that afternoon.
