Stuck on an elevator with this guy? Not so bad…

It was revealed today by everyone from People Magazine to Perez Hilton that a seemingly innocuous news piece about members of a tour group getting stuck on an Illinois state Capitol elevator during a tour on March 30 had the privilege, some would say, of being stuck with Australian actor Jesse Spencer. Well known for playing Dr. Richard Chase on the American medical drama “House,” Spencer currently stars in the TV drama “Chicago Fire.” That’s fitting, since the story, published today on Elevator World’s website, had a lot to do with the Springfield Fire Department, who Spencer ended up calling when he and fellow passengers felt the Capitol building’s elevator contractor was taking too long too arrive. Spencer was among about 25 passengers who were freed by the fire department, which Spencer was gracious enough to pose for a photo with after the rescue. Today, he tweeted the photo with the caption, “Thanks Springfield FD saved us from an elevator at the Capitol Building. Stuck for an hour, I muscled the doors open.”
