Johns Brothers meet the DeLuise Brothers …..So a little while after my brother and I had watched the Deluise brothers on stage at Gatecon we were having an interview with “Dial The Gate” when a crowd of people come in and Peter and David DeLuise are at the forefront. They come walking to the Stargate and David says to his brother Peter “This is the awesome display I was telling you about”. My jaw hit the ground. Not only were there 2 amazing actors and producers standing in front of me but I was in disbelief of what I just heard David say. Peter started chatting and asking questions about our display and then began telling us cool behind the scenes stuff that happened on the Stargate series. My brother Jason had jumped in and we were all chatting. We talked for 20-30 minutes. Both signed the back of the gate (signatures together) but before Peter and David left we all shook hands and David said “This is good….. real good”. My jaw dropped again. I was told by staff that later he mentioned our display again and that he was genuinely impressed. The staff said it’s not often he says that so they said we really did impress him. Again a jaw drop. That alone made a year and a half of hard work, stress and frustration worth every minute….. and on top be able to share this moment with my brother
