Brian Batt is the actor who played the closeted gay businessman in the TV series Mad Men, and he also had a major role in the gay-themed comedy Jeffreyl I was in New Orleans for Mardi Gras and was walking down Bourbon St. where all the gay bars are clustered close together. I looked up to one of the many balconies, and there stood Brian Batt, talking to some friends. I went up to him and began a quite nice chat with him. He was very pleasant and "real"--nothing phony or stuck up about him. He told me that New Orleans was his home. We chatted about his role in Mad Men and he told me that his character is not "dead," so there is a chance that he might return to that series. He said that Jon Hamm was quite a nice man and easy to get along with. He also mentioned that he has a book coming out soon entitled She's Not Heavy--She's My Mother. All in all, it was quite a pleasant conversation and an exciting moment for me. (I'm very star struck!) Anyone else ever met a famous star in person? I'd love to hear about it!
