As has been well documented in the pages of this blog, I have a gift for spotting celebrities on my trains. In fact, as many of you know, I am the self-proclaimed "Conductor to the Stars."
Tonight, I must admit, I even surprised myself. Meet John Gilchrist (photo below.) John is an Advertising Executive with the ESPN Network in Manhattan, and he was a passenger on my 6:07 train home tonight. Because I am gifted in the art of star spotting, I immediately recognized John as his alter-ego.
If you can guess where you've seen John before, you just might have what it takes to be the next "________to the Stars!"
Need a hint?
John was a child actor.
Got it now?
Here are a few more hints:
- Urban legend claims that John died from mixing Pop Rocks and Coca Cola. (Rumors of his demise were greatly exaggerated.)
- He starred in a TV commercial (with his brothers) in which he didn't even have a speaking part.
- He likes "life."
Sorry, but if you don't have the answer by now, you're just not worthy of the "To the stars" title.
"He likes it!...Hey Mikey!"
Thanks to John Gilchrist for giving me permission to use his name and likeness in this post.
