Brent Spiner is a Funny Dude

13 March 2010 2 Comments by

I had the opportunity to meet Brent Spiner at Dragon*con a few years ago. I also follow him on Twitter. Spiner is a funny dude. I’ve said in the past that he’s a big weirdo, but in the most endearing and funny way possible. So when I found out he was going to be at MegaCon in Orlando this weekend, I told a friend of mine that was going that he had to make a point to see Spiner. (I no longer live in O-Town and couldn’t go myself.)

Well, my friend just returned home, and relayed the following conversation he and Spiner had (paraphrased of course):

Friend: I have a friend who does a convention blog and said you’re a highlight and I had to meet you.

Brent Spiner: Does she like Shatner?

Friend: No, not really.

Brent Spiner: I don’t really blame her.

That just made my night!

P.S. Brent is currently scheduled to attend Dragon*con 2010! Definitely go see him and his panel, you won’t regret it, I promise.

P.P.S. My friend is right, I don’t like Shatner.

    LOL. You mean the story about him and Jonathan Frakes carrying on in the Walk of Fame at D*C?
