William Hurt Walks Among Us

At first, I thought I was seeing things when Oscar winner William Hurt walked by me tonight on Cranberry Street.  Vantage Point is on pay-per-view this month and Mrs. Fink and I had watched it over the weekend.  Over active imagination I thought. So after a little googling I was led to our own website, where commenter AliG had mentioned seeing Hurt having dinner at Jack the Horse in July.   Hurt is reuniting with his Big Chill co-star Glenn Close and joining the cast of FX’s Damages – which began filming its second season here in June.   So yes, that was William Hurt walking by me.  Does anyone know if he is living in Brooklyn Heights?

    I have had a friend mention seeing him around as well. Not sure if he actually lives here though. Let’s give him the privacy he deserves though and be the aloof New Yorkers we’re supposed to be ;-)

    After all this isn’t the west village.

    Another sighting on Willow Street 11am-ish on Sunday. Very pleasant fellow. He entered a building on Willow – no address in the interest of Mr. Hurt’s privacy.

    Saw Mr. Bill at the Eastern Athletic on Monday Aug 11. I guess a good workout never HURT anyone!

    He was at the firestation on Middagh talking to the firemen a few weeks back. Funny story, after he walks away, one of the fireman asks me, “Ey. Who was that guy?”

    Tee hee

    Zeekers: very funny. Hurt is actually someone from central casting would book to play a white guy from Brooklyn Heights. Perfect!

    Has anyone seen the National Enquirer story about his Jack-the-Horse beatdown/bender???
