TMZ Reporter Mistakes Eddie George For Calvin Johnson at Airport

Somewhere Eddie George’s old theatre professor at Ohio State is beaming with pride.

When this TMZ cameraman met George at a Los Angeles airport, he thought the retired running back was All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions. He was so confident that he went along and interviewed “Calvin Johnson” and Eddie George played right along with it.

Brilliant. Take a look below.

Props to Eddie George as he clearly had the TMZ reporter stumped the whole time. On the other hand, the reporter does lose multiple credibility points. How in the world do you get Eddie George confused with Megatron?

I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy went to the Giants Super Bowl parade looking for “Sanchez”.
