Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
I met Bpbby Easley at Days of the Dead several years ago. I learned a bit about him in my interview at On the Beat With Bobby Easley.
Bobby is an actor, director, producer and more. Multi-talented and versatile, I think Bobby's most complete and best work is The Devil Dogs of Kilo Company. Utilizing the familiar green "army men" plastic toys and the voices of such stars as Kane Hodder and Bill Moseley, this movie is original, unique and highly entertaining.
Not one to rest on his successes, Bobby is constantly in motion, working on new projects. I always look forward to seeing what he is doing.
It always interests me to see which celebrities other celebrities like meeting. Bobby described meeting Sigourney Weaver as "one of the greatest days of my life." That is indeed a strong statement and shows how much he wanted to see the legendary actress.
Judging by Bobby's appearances at conventions, it is obvious he is already gaining a large fan base. I think some day in the future, someone will describe meeting him in the same manner as when he met Weaver.
I can't say meeting Bobby is one of the greatest days of my life, but I always enjoy seeing him and doing an update interview. I don't know how it started, but somehow I always end the interviews by "punching" Bobby. Last time, I accidentally knocked over his beer. Sorry, Bobby, I owe you one.
