Daniel Sunjata loves me

I’ve made mention before that one of my long-time favorite shows on TV is Rescue Me, a series that airs on the FX Channel. It focuses on the private and personal lives of a group of firefighters in post 9/11 New York City. It’s gritty, intense, raunchy and at times, incredibly funny, and I’ve been missing it a lot lately. Season 7 doesn’t begin until early summer.

I feel like I’ve gotten to know all the main characters since the show first aired in the summer of 2004 and Daniel Sunjata, who portrays Franco Rivero, is one of my favorite characters.

And until this evening, I had no idea I was HIS favorite as well. I mean, it says so right here.

Taken in the NYC apartment of a friend of mine, he looks really kind ~ not at all like the tough firefighter he portrays on the show. And he was more than happy to oblige my friend when she told him I was one of the biggest fans of the show.

Here’s the intro. I look forward to hearing it again this summer. And thanks to my friend for making me smile today.

Until tomorrow, my friends . . .

What a thoughtful friend, that Daryl.

Do you think she can get Harry Connick, Jr., to do one for me?

Ah well, anyway, that is awesome.

I think an 8x10 of that photo framed and hanging on your wall is what you need....or an 11x14 maybe....I think the poster size might be a bit over the top :)

Awsome. I had written a post on my blog about how I love certain tv characters. I linked your post back to show that they love bloggers - or at least you - back. Way to go.

Kate - that is awesome! I've been a fan of Denis Leary's since his days on Afterdrive AGES ago and was so happy when Rescue Me got critical acclaim...it's a great show; one of my favorites!

Mental P Mama said...

I told her to do that for me when George Clooney comes over;)

Anonymous said...

I had to reread because I thought he was a firefighter but then he plays the character - so is he an actor or firefighter? Either way, cute! Our local firefighters are strong, handsome young men. I haven't seen an old one in years :)

By the way, the new masthead is beautiful. Out with winter snow, in with spring birds!
