Yesterday on TNLP, we noted that Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh made a cameo appearance on the NBC comedy, “Parks and Recreation”. One of the actresses on the show, Aubrey Plaza has been noted as a fan of the Heat big man and well, she finally got the chance to meet him on the set. Normally, these meetings go by without a hitch but Aubrey’s personal account tells otherwise as she attempted to prank him by pretending to be a hair dresser and that’s where we pick up the story: “I waited and I waited on set for him. And I was really nervous, like, ‘Well, how am I going to meet him? What am I going to say? Does he know who I am? Does he know that I care about him? Because I’ve never heard from him ever. I knew that he was going to have to go into the hair and makeup trailer before he shot his scene, so I decided that I would wait in there for him, and while I was there I was talking to the hair and makeup ladies. I decided, ‘What if I did a funny bit where I pretended like I was the hair person?’ I took Helena’s sweater and her glasses — she’s our hair person — and just made up a character. He finally showed up, but in my head, I thought, Well, he’s going to know it’s me, right away. “Big mistake. He comes in the hair and makeup trailer and I say, ‘Hey, I’m Helena. I’m going to do your hair.’ I’m thinking that he’s going to go, ‘Oh, it’s you!’ and instead, he went, ‘Hi, nice to meet you.’ He sat down, and I was like, ‘Well … you look really good, Chris. I guess we don’t have to buzz anything or edge you up. Or, maybe, do you want me to edge you up?’ He was like, ‘No, no, I’m good.’ He said it was really nice to be there and he was being really polite, and he literally didn’t know who I was. So I kept the bit going, and I kept doing more outrageous things so that he would get a clue that it was me joking around. I picked up this Afro wig and I was like, ‘What about this? How about this fake mustache?’ and he just kept staring straight down at the floor, probably thinking to himself, ‘Wow, the hair department on this show is really crazy. All I want to do is get out of this trailer.’ The whole time I’m thinking,Well, I’ve done it so long now that I actually think it would be more awkward if I took my glasses off and went, ‘It’s me!’ That would’ve been weird. “Eventually I said, ‘Well, you look great. You’re all set to go,’ and he went, ‘Thank you very much. Nice to meet you.’ I got a picture with him, as Helena*, and then he left.” *** How Aubrey Plaza made meeting Chris Bosh weird [Vulture]
