    He would have never been caught had he used Rideshare to sneak around with those women. LMFAO.

    I gave a ride to a guy who was talking about leaving a book signing. We had about 30-40 minute drive to the airport, but we talked about his books and history and so forth. I looked him up shortly thereafter and it looked to be a pretty popular sci-fi book, but not really my genre. Unfortunately now I can't even remember his name...

    Mat Bomer?

    He played Neil Caffry in White Collar TV show.

    I also drove a guy claiming to be Michael Dorn, (Worf from Star trek) He sounded EXACTLY like him but to be honest I don't think i'd recognize him without Klingon makeup. So i'd give it a 50/50 it was just someone messing with me.

    In a cab, I had a few prominent local politicians, that I didn't acknowledge I knew who they were, and considering the fact that I took one to a gay venue- I am as sworn to secrecy as a priest would be.

    I did meet David Johnson at Channel 11, delivered a tape for a newscast from their truck that was parked cross town.

    Great guy, really.

    I was being facetious. :p
    As for Michael Dorn, He's not famous enough for anybody to pretend to be him. So it is very likely. I met him once. Very nice guy and looks nothing like you would think he does without the Kling on makeup. Based on Worf, you would think he is menacing, maybe even mean, but he is very happy go lucky and smiles alot.

    He was a really nice dude. It was also during the local comicon so that makes it motto likely to be honest.

    I've met lots of famous people. None of them while Ubering, though.

    Only celebrity I have had is the Travelocity Gnome. The guy that travels with him was totally cool. Only complaint I have is that the trunk TG travels in jacked up my lift gate.
