    Is it possible to just say, "Hello" to Mr. King? Whether he responds or not is inconsequential, but who doesn't like to be acknowledged by random people?

    Before or if anyone decides to belittle my post, think about how you feel when someone says, "Hello sir (or ma'am)" to you, even if you've done nothing to warrant such attention.

    If you just happen to see him in public not at an official event, he's usually fine with someone saying hello depending on the circumstances. For example, if you were both walking along the street, he's fine with it. If he's out with friends or family having dinner, attending some sort of event, etc., that's his personal time and he'd prefer people let him enjoy that in private.

    If I make eye contact with people on the street, I always smile and say hello. Makes me feel good and most of the time, they feel good as well. Anyone in the public eye deserves their private time, and I think it would be downright rude not to give them that time.

    I've never 'run into' Steve anywhere, but I know people who have. What Ms. Mod says is true, just be nice, cordial, and respectful of any celeb's personal space/time, and usually most will smile back, sya hello, etc. The only famous people I've ever had chance encounters with were Dennis "DJ" Johnson (former Celtics great) and Jackie Mason. In the case of DJ, I just said "Hey DJ!" or something like that and he smiled and said hey back as we passed. While in NYC for a King event, my wife and I crossed paths with Jackie Mason, but I realised it was him only after we passed each other and my brain had a chance to work it out a few seconds later. I said out loud "Wasn't that Jackie Mason?" to my wife, and a passer-by, said yes, it was. We didn't chase after him or anything as he looked like he just wanted to go get his dinner!

    Every other celebrity encounter I've had has been at a planned event. Missed a chance to say hi to Salman Rushdie when he and his sone sat behind the two Debs that I knew at the harry, Carrie, and Garp event, again in NYC.

    BH and I saw him in a restaurant once, but I couldn't imagine disturbing a guy just trying to eat his meal and chat with a dinner companion in peace. Much as I respect him, the stories (and those forewords and afterwords!) he gives us all are enough.

    I've occasionally seen local sports celebrities and I give them that look that says "I know who you are, but I'm not going to make a big deal about it" and give them a smile and a nod, and I will get a smile back!

    23 years ago I was working in the maintenance department of a well known medical facility. I had left the shop in the lowest level to retrieve a piece of equipment and had it on my shoulder when I kicked one of a set of double doors that entered into a employee only corridor. There were about twenty suits in there. First, I noticed the little squiggly cords running from their ears to benieth their collars. Then I noticed they were all scrutinizing me with my metal box. Then I noticed the guy with the red polo shirt right in their midst. It was Ronald Reagan. I stopped short, leaned against the wall and kind of smiled a bit as they filed past. I knew that he wasn't a big man but I had no idea how not big he was.

    I once sold Tim Daly underwear. And I asked for his ID because he used a credit card, as I was supposed to. He said, "Do I not look like who I'm supposed to be?" And I said, "I don't know who you're SUPPOSED to be."

    That has nothing to do with anything but I thought it was funny.

    Even more so since I've thought he was sexy since I was, like, eight.

    Oh yes! I might have had a bit of a flutter at that one--lol. Do you watch The Daly Show on YouTube? He's hilarious! Makes him even more attractive :)

    I thought you meant the Daily Show with John Stewart - oy - I'm confused...
    Did you know Tim Daly is the younger brother of Tyne Daly? I did not know that

    I agree with this. Depends on the situation.

    I met him when he was here filming Storm of the Century--have a picture taken with him somewhere. He was really nice and very easy to talk to. Something for the Stephen King Trivia that may not have been mentioned before--too hard for me to keep up--is that he had been offered the part of Jack Torrance for the mini-series but turned it down and eventually Steven Weber (both of whom played in Wings) ended up in the role. For that matter, it was beginning to look like no one would take the part because they didn't want to follow in Jack Nicholson's shoes.

    Tim is amazing in Storm of the Century. Love him. Love the movie.

    Oh my gosh! I love them both!!! They were my first crushes. I used to watch "Wings" and I couldn't decide between the two of them.

    Though after seeing Mr. Daly's undies I think he's pulled into the lead. (TMI?)
