TCA: “John from Cincinnati” moment at HBO party

Garsononeillcrop_2It was such a “John from Cincinnati” moment.

Moments after I strolled into HBO’s poolside party at the W hotel in Westwood on Thursday, I meandered aimlessly (or so I thought?) by a small group of people conversing in a cocktail party circle. I was still scanning the crowd and overall scene when I heard a familiar voice say “…and it was printed on Variety.com that the show is good…” and then the cocktail-party huddle opens up and whaddya know! it’s Willie Garson (pictured far left with Ed O’Neill), aka lawyer Dickstein of “John from Cincinnati,” and no kidding (I couldn’t make this up), he’s talking about this week’s On the Air column about taking a second look at “John” and how the cast is so damn good. I was stunned — so much so I almost kept meandering on, but I couldn’t. (What writer could?) The timing was just too perfect, the entree too good to pass up.
