Actor Christopher Gorham visiting Ann Arbor for Art Fair - and his own Zingerman's sandwich creation
According to Chris Farah, the Ann Arbor native who directed "Answer This!," Gorham— who is already on the record as a big fan of Ann Arbor—is bringing his family to town for the Ann Arbor Art Fair.
While he's here, Gorham (who lives in California) plans to stop at Zingerman's—where the deli will be selling a special sandwich Gorham created.
Farah said a Zingerman's Reuben is Gorham's "favorite sandwich in the world." But Gorham is putting a twist on it: The special sandwich, to be called Chris Gorham's "Answer This!," substitutes sourdough bread for Jewish rye and adds a sliced old pickle to the mix, according to Pete Sickman-Garner, marketing manager for Zingerman's.
Sickman-Garner said that Gorham is expected to visit Zingerman's Deli, 422 Detroit Street, some time on Saturday. The "Answer This!" sandwich will only be on sale this Saturday and Sunday.
Gorham starred in the locally shot (and locally set) indie movie "Answer This!," and he attended the local premiere last fall at the Michigan Theater. Farah said the movie is close to getting a distribution deal with "a major Hollywood distributor, which should bring the movie to Michigan theaters soon."
Currently, Gorham is best known as a costar on "Covert Affairs," a series on USA Network. He previously played Henry on ABC's "Ugly Betty."
