You know what’s more fun than watching TV Land’s delightfully throwbacky sitcom Hot in Cleveland, which returned to television last night? Being on set of the episode that aired last night! And not even that, but being there not exactly as press, but as an extra.
If you watched last night’s episode “Where’s Elka?” and watched close (and, you know, had any remote idea of what I look like, which you likely don’t), you would have seen me a couple of times. Albeit, very, very briefly, in a couple of the scenes where Joy (Jane Leeves), Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli), and Victoria (Wendie Malick) stumble into an Amish bar (Victoria postulates that it’s an “old-timey gay bar”) looking for Elka (Betty White). I’m dressed as an Amish bar dude. Did you see me? The photographic evidence of my presence — sitting at the table of guys that flash to when the gals enter the bar, and then later, next to guest star George Wendt — is below.
