Steven Michael Quezada

This guy is so cool. And he looks way way too cool on my bike. You know him as playing Gomez, Hanks DEA Agent side kick on Breaking Bad. He's also a local New Mexican celebrity of sorts as a stand-up comedian. He's hilarious, and he has great hair. Good to see him the other night!

Check out his website to see when his next stand-up show is:

Dean Norris

Dean had a BBQ at his house recently, and even though I'm not working on Breaking Bad anymore, he invited me to come by. I had to bring the bike, of course! He lives out in Corrales with his beautiful wife and kids, on a really great piece of property. It was a pleasure to go- the party was complete with margaritas, tons of food, good wine and karaoke.

It was way cool seeing Dean again. We've done a few shows together now and he's always a blast. And he promised Michael and I that he'd come hang downtown with us very soon. I'm holding him to it.

R.J. Mitte

Oh R.J., pretty much the sweetest younger actor I've worked with yet. I wrote in my other blog, dated January 15, 2008, after several months of working with R.J.:

"I had my own emotions while filming this show. As some of you know, I wear hearing aids. It doesn't affect my life much, but it can when people mumble, or their back is to me. I usually tell people I'm working with so they don't get frustrated. I told R.J. Mitte this when I was washing his hair the first day and he said, “Oh, it's OK, I'm loosing my hearing too.” I had to hold in from bursting out crying to how sweet that sounded, since it's rare that I can tell someone this and they can understand. Much less a young person. We always exchanged stories about how we pretend to hear people for the rest of the three month shoot."

Sadly it had been well over a year since I had seen R.J. in person. He's still a doll- maybe a little too good looking for being 17 (!). I attended his 17th birthday party this evening and got him on my bike. We exchanged more fascinating stories and agreed to not let another entire year go by without seeing each other. How I missed him. He's doing so good on Breaking Bad and has a very promising acting career and from what I can tell, with the ladies we well. Oh la la.

I will always love love love my little R.J.
