Me and Jack...

Greg James | 10:34 UK time, Saturday, 24 January 2009

I was annoyed yesterday morning that I'd decided to take a holiday when the brilliant Kiefer Sutherland AKA 'Jack Bauer' from the TV show '24' was on with Chris Moyles.

Please listen again to the interview - it was excellent.  He was on at about 8:10am.

I am a huge fan of '24' and was gutted that I couldn't hang around after my usual early show to stalk him.

However, in an amazing twist of fate, I was out with a couple of mates last night and he walked in to the restaurant I was in!  This wasn't a particularly fancy restaurant and I was just tucking into a pizza when all of a sudden I saw him.  I've never been so star struck.  I ordered my mate to come with me and take a photo immediately, I'd had a couple of drinks so I was full of courage.  Here's the result:


It's everso slightly awkward isn't it. 

Here's my favourites that you sent in...

All nice, but a little bit awkward

    Crikey Greg - he is small! Or are you just like, 7ft 3"?! Very jealous though - Kiefer Sutherland the legend! Genuine question, did he torture you after?

    Aww, fates nice like that.
    Its a nice picture, yeah.. slightly awkward looking and he looks a bit like someone from madam tussades, but at least you got to meet him.

    What a lovely photo....if slightly awkward! I'd love to meet Kiefer. I met Vinnie Jones in a pub in Dublin several years ago. I was quite drunk and bounded up to him, asking him for a photo. He was very lovely and put up with my drunken waffle!! He put his arms around me and we had a lovely photo taken......despite me looking slightly worse for wear!!!!

    Nice pictures Greg.... very nice.
    It s lovely when you meet your fan and take a picture with him.
    I hope he will be your guest in Earlier Breakfast Show..... and I know that you would like that.
    also the other pictures are nice and all is possible when you get out with friends.
