Shooting Bill Irwin in a mall

Most days I think my job is pretty cool, but yesterday took the cake. Bill Irwin, Tony winner, movie star and probably the most famous vaudeville clown in a generation, spent some time with me in a suburban mall. First we shot for my "Dancers Among Us" series, then he just played around in his clown suit. My favorite moment came when a woman recognized him while I was asker her directions to the food court. She looked right through me, walked over to him with her two young children in tow, and said, "Oh my God, it is so fucking awesome to meet you Mr. Noodle." (Mr. Noodle would be the character he plays on Sesame Street)
