You never know who you’re going to meet -- or when!

When “Madam Secretary” star Keith Carradine sat down at the kitchen table with Rach a few days after Hugh Hefner’s death, he recalled an unexpected encounter he once had with the “Playboy” editor in 1976.

Six years after filming his second movie, “McCabe and Mrs. Miller,” with Warren Beatty, both actors crossed paths again while stumping for the Jerry Brown presidential campaign.

“In the course of that,” Carradine recalls, “I wound up in the back of a limousine with Warren Beatty -- and Hugh Hefner. The late Hugh Hefner.”

“I can’t remember specifically what we talked about ...,” he continues.

“I bet I could guess!” Rach quips.

Well, Carradine may not remember the conversation, but he’ll surely never forget the moment.

“It’s seared in my memory bank forever,” he says.
