Hump Day Stumper

It’s that time of the week again, where we delve into the truly shocking TV Land stories I shouldn’t be telling you.

But here’s the thing. Not all hush-hush TV celebrity behavior is offensive and harrowing! (I know, shocking.) So today, I’m offering up a Stumper of a different nature: A heartwarming tale of humility and generosity, courtesy of one of my favorite TV peeps. And even better, I’ll reveal to you the identity of this one—yes, I’m naming names!—in next Wednesday’s Stumper.

Good Deed Dan
Dan is by most accounts the breakout star of his show. He’s invited everywhere (the hottest parties, the Playboy mansion) and has a considerable fan following—but he actually appears to be getting more humble by the moment! Case in point: While I’ve had my fair share of meals with TV actors who simply walked away without so much as a thought of paying their share of the bill (a certain FX star comes to mind), Dan did quite the opposite at a recent group dinner for a mutual friend. After apologizing profusely that he had to leave early to go to a monthly dinner with his cast, Dan quietly wished everyone well and excused himself. Many hours (and drinks and carnitas) later, when we asked for the bill, our waiter revealed that Dan had taken care of it. All of it.

Now, I ask you, is this the kind of behavior you expect from an actor in Hollywood? If so, come sit next to me for awhile and I’ll tell you a few stories…

Got guesses? Post ‘em below.
