In Vegas with my American Flyers castmates!

I had a wonderful time seeing my castmates from American Flyers, Rae Dawn Chong and Luca Bercovici, last night in Las Vegas at the Interbike Awards Gala. The movie was being honoured as an iconic film within the bicycling world, and it was fun to see how important the movie has been to cycling enthusiasts from all over the world.  Luca flew in from Hungary – I had not seen him since I ran into him at an audition 20 years ago.  I saw Rae Dawn (who will be a grandmother in 2 weeks!) last year at an autograph signing, but it was great to catch up with her.  She was hiliarous on stage – who knew she was such a comedienne?  An added bonus was the very funny MC and comedian, Alonzo Bodden, whom I adore on the NPR show Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.  I was jazzed to meet him!

Luca played Barry Muzzin, the bad guy cyclist in the movie - but he is so nice in real life!
