Rob and Toby Ziegler, Lost in Denver

Everywhere I've been so far in Denver that hasn't been within a few blocks of the hotel I have had a driver. When I walked out of the Pepsi Center after Michelle Obama's speech I realized I had no idea how to get back to the hotel. I started talking to the guy in the video above who was also lost. It only took a moment for me to realize that I was speaking to actor Richard Schiff who played Tobias (Toby) Ziegler on The West Wing.

We walked down the street and received directions from a kind police officer. Before we parted I asked if he would say something into the camera for our Amicus viewers which he was more than willing to do.

I've met a lot of actors, and generally those experiences have been positive, but for me, Richard Schiff will stand out as one of those celebrities that truly comes off as a decent, genuine human being. While I was talking with Richard several fans came up to say hello and ask for his autograph which he did without hesitation and with a smile on his face.

I hope you enjoy Richard's hello as much as I enjoyed meeting the man who played Toby Ziegler.

BTW, the only DVD I brought to Denver was the Second Season of The West Wing, a series I am watching for the second time this year.
