We all have our "guilty" TV pleasures, right? Shows we like to watch, but don't always tell everyone about. Mine is "The Flash."
Since I've been a kid, he's always been my favorite superhero. I read the comics as a kid, loved the TV show in the 90s, and was happy when they brought it back a few years ago on the CW. I was a little skeptical at first, but it turned out to be an entertaining and very well written show.
Then through the twitterverse I got to know John Wesley Shipp, who played "The Flash" 20-plus years ago, and is now playing another version of him in the new show. We've done interviews and podcasts, and he's great at responding to fans on his twitter account @JohnWesleyShipp.
I arrived at work early one morning recently, and waiting for me at my desk, was this....
Yeah, I kind of geeked out. But more importantly, it just goes to show you how down to earth, generous and kind a lot of actors are. They appreciate their fans, and more importantly, respect them. And for me, that goes a long way. Thanks for the picture John! Oh, and listen to my podcast with John here : http://kfbk.iheart.com/media/play/27695446/
