You might remember Thomas Lennon as Lt. Jim Dangle from the hit Comedy Central TV show “Reno 911!” or as Felix Unger from the CBS reboot of “The Odd Couple.”

Now you can remember him as that guy you saw at Classic Cinemas Lake Theatre, 1022 Lake St., on Monday March 11, at 7:30 p.m.

Lennon will discuss growing up in Oak Park and his time in Lala Land at the forum “From Harlem Avenue to Hollywood Boulevard: An Evening with Thomas Lennon.”

The event will include clips from the actor’s career and an interview with Wednesday Journal’s very own theater critic Doug Deuchler.

Lennon is currently promoting his middle-grade fantasy book titled “Ronan Boyle and the Bridge of Riddles,” which explores the life of a 14 year old who joins the police force and investigates crimes by “leprechauns and other wee folk.”

The event is sponsored by the Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest. More information is available at
