“Ernie Sabella let me crash at his place for a year in L.A. when I was trying to make it," "First night out, we went to a Beverly Hills-ish restaurant that he knew of with a couple of friends, and Alec Baldwin was at the table next to us. Ernie had done something with Alec, or knew him or something from New York. And so he introduced me. So my first night in L.A., I go out to this swanky restaurant in the one suit that I own, and Alec Baldwin is shaking my hand. And he's a pretty intense guy, so it was an overwhelming experience.
"Of course, I didn't meet another celebrity for another six months. I was living in the valley in a run-down apartment," he adds. "But that night was, 'Oh, this is what it could be like.'" - Ben McKenzie @vindy 1/2: #benmckenzie #erniesabella #repost #michaelchiklis @michaelchiklis
