It's no surprise that Michael Weatherly — current star of Bull, alum of NCIS and Dark Angel -- gets recognized a lot when he's out and about on the street. The only problem is, the fans who come up to him sometimes don't know who it is that they're approaching.

Weatherly recently shared with TVGuide.com some of his more odd fan encounters, including the time he was mistaken for George Peppard (who, it should be noted, died in 1994). In fairness, Weatherly admits that one of the misidentifications came from a blind person.

But it's not all bad news: Weatherly isn't afraid to use the non-recognitions to his advantage on occasion. Check out the video to hear the story about how he got a free (and, by the sounds of it, very pricey) lunch thanks to Sean Patrick Flanery.

Bull airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on CBS.
