Behind music and comedy, magic comes in a close fourth in my list of things I love. I'm a big fan of close up magic and with my attitude, you know that Penn & Teller are faves. Still, I never expected Teller to sound like this.

The first time I heard Teller speak was in an HBO movie about minor league baseball called "Long Gone." William Petersen and Virginia Madsen were the stars and for a baseball movie, it's pretty good. Teller, in a nifty bit of casting, played Henry Gibson's son.

Not long after, my twin sister and I were riding the Metro North from Westchester into Manhattan, when Teller entered the train in Irvington, which is about 35 minutes outside of NYC. No sooner did we spot him--he was sitting alone right behind us--then we started chatting him up. We talked until we got into town and then walked with him through midtown (he was on his way to the theater for a show).

I don't recall any of the conversation but remember that he was a genuine and friendly guy. Very approachable, and perfectly happy to shoot the shit with two high school kids.

The funny part about Long Gone was that Teller's character spent most of the movie whispering ideas into Henry Gibson's ear-so even with a speaking part he rarely spoke.

Damn...that WAS William Petersen. I knew he looked familiar, but never would have put that together. Thanks for pointing that out, Mr. Belth.

You guys been hearing about the new movie, "The Aristocrats," about the dirtiest joke ever told. I think Penn is a co-producer.

Not like I imagined either. Now does anybody have a link to Harpo Marx audio?

Teller actually has a speaking part in the Kentucky Fried Movie, a spoof movie by the Naked Gun guys from back in the mid-1970s.

Teller turns up on NPR once or twice a year. I think he's a fan of the programming, or at least of ATC.
