The other day I was a bar and a strange approached me. He asked, “Are you Paul Rust?” I said no. He smiled and put his hand out for a shake and said “I’m a big fan, just finished the series, loved it.” I said “No, I’m not Paul Rust.”
Did he think I was joking? Was he just rehearsing his big Paul Rust intro so hard that he didn’t hear my answer? Does Paul Rust famously deny his identity in public?
