HBO star makes surprise cameo shortly after 7-year-old girl’s shooting

Strange. I thought DC was a safe gun free zone.
Check it out:

T.J. Miller, the shaggy-haired actor on HBO’s new hit “Silicon Valley,” appeared at a D.C. crime scene minutes after a 7-year-old girl was struck by a bullet Tuesday night.

Sharp-eyed photojournalist Carlos Martinez of NBC Washington recognized the up-and-coming comedian in front of yellow crime scene tape and videotaped the actor before Miller ducked away. Martinez posted a photo of Miller on Twitter and pointed out a red stain on the actor’s pants.

It’s unclear what Miller was doing in the Park View neighborhood, one of the rougher areas in that part of the District. He and his publicist could not be reached Wednesday.

According to his social media postings, Miller was in the Washington area this week, touring the national monuments and co-hosting a podcast “Cashing In With T.J. Miller.” In the HBO show, Miller plays an arrogant blowhard who smokes a lot of pot and ingests mushrooms.
