On the path to stardom for sure...

Phylicia RashadSo my wife Cheryl just got home from walking our eldest, Emily to Sr. Kindergarten for the afternoon. On the way to school they walked past a bunch of movie trailers for a film shoot. We see them all the time in our neighborhood as we live right downtown Toronto. Usually it is a crew for a commercial or made to TV production so we don't spend much time figuring out what is going on.

Everything changed today... Emily was running ahead past some of the trailers when the door opened and almost took her head off. Out stepped none other then Mrs. Huxtable herself. Others like to call her Phylicia Rashad. She apologized to Emily for almost killing her.

Cheryl was excited about her celebrity sighting so she told all the Mom's at school but the real action was on the way home, walking by the set again, who did she walk by? P Diddy/Puffy/Sean Combs. He looked in her direction. He was busy talking to some old fat lady.

After a short bit of research, they are in town to make a film version of the Broadway hit, Raisin in the Sun.

That completely tops our celebrity encounter of going out for Halloween with my kids and Trick or Treating with Master T of Much Music Fame. Well not so much with him but rather walking behind, for about 1/2 of a block... :)
