When actor/comedian John Cho stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday (Sept. 22), he recalled meeting the former Smiths frontman for the first time and detailed the most Morrissey-like encounter ever.
“When I was younger, I was in an all-aged pool hall here in Los Angeles and it was filled with Filipino gangsters who were underage. But there was one impeccably dressed Englishman, and it was Morrissey,” Cho said, after Kimmel asked if he had met anyone who he idolized.
“I was a big fan. I was learning my guitar chords at the time and I think I walked up to him and said, ‘Oh my god, it’s you!’ And he said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘I can’t tell you what an honor it is to meet you. I write songs, too.’ And he said, ‘I bet they’re terrible.'”
