It was a fun movie night at the Playboy mansion for Ronn and I had the pleasure of introducing Hef to one of his favorite TV stars, Michael C. Hall who plays “Dexter” on the popular Showtime drama. Our dear friend Wally Crowder who is the stunt coordinator on Dexter and his lovely wife Lori joined us in what seemed to be quite a moment for both Michael and Hef. Since Ronn and I saw Hef tweeting about watching Dexter and our friend Wally worked on the show, we thought we’d treat Hef for a change to something we knew he’d enjoy. Michael had never been to the Playboy mansion and was thrilled to meet Hef along with his girlfriend Morgan. I personally gave Michael a tour of the famous Grotto and Hef’s amazing zoo.
Then we had a wonderful dinner and it was such a pleasure to get to know the man behind serial killer, “Dexter.” Turns out I’m a little older than Michael and he admitted he saw his first Playboy in 1985 as he turned 14 right before my eyes. It was very cute to see the boy in him.
Michael was sweet enough to bring Hef a DVD of the latest season of Dexter and Hef in turn presented Michael with the latest issue of Playboy. Hef was so excited to show Michael the very first page of the new issue because it was a 2 page ad for none other than “Dexter.” Needless to say the two of them bonded in a very special way and now Michael is part of the Playboy family. We enjoyed the movie “Lawless” with Shia LeBeauf and I don’t think Dexter is all that bad now. In fact we may end up hanging out with him more often! A special thank you to our wonderful friends Alison and Joel who helped make this all possible. It was beautiful to watch Hef and Dexter gush over each other, who knew?
Thanks Dev. As always love to read your blog.
