John Lithgow sighting

Harvard Square seems to be a magnet for tall, slender movie and television actors over fifty. I still remember the first time I saw John Malkovich (who lives here) walking by, causing me to slip in a snow pile. I also saw James Cromwell (Six Feet Under, Babe, L.A. Confidential) outside of a popular Tex-Mex restaurant called the Border Cafe. I never did discover why he was here.

And then yesterday while walking to the subway I walked by John Lithgow. I stopped in my tracks and stared unabashedly as he passed, mostly so that I could confirm for myself it wasn't just some guy who looked like him.

Definitely it was, and I've since found out he's a Harvard alum, so it makes sense he's visiting, especially with the school year wrapping up. Big guy.

I LOVE your celeb sightings!! I may move to Cambridge just based on who you've seen. Are you sure you slipped on a snow pile when you saw John Malkovich (or were you thrown thru some black hole onto the side of that snow pile?)The Jab

Does that make you famous by association? ;)

I followed Darius Dinesh through security at the airport once...that's my claim to fame!
