Jennifer Garner’s struggle to hit up an old friend went hilariously wrong!
On Friday, the 49-year-old actress posted a screenshot on Instagram of a text mart of her trying to reconnect with her former Alias co-star Carl Lumbly, writing:
“Carl — this is Jen G. Here comes proof.”
Apparently, the two colleagues haven’t chatted in a while considering it turned out that the number was no longer Lumbly’s, and she ended up messaging a well-constructed stranger! While in the process of sending the selfie, the unknown person responded:

After realizing her mistake, Garner replied:
“Hahaha well this is me!”
In the caption of the post, the 13 Going on 30 star couldn’t help but poke fun at the “humbling” experience, saying:
“You know the one time you take a selfie to prove to someone you’re you? And get a ‘wrong number’ message just as it’s gone out into the world? Well, it’s humbling, isn’t it. #IfYouAreWorkingWithCarlLumbly #PleaseTellHimImLookingForHim #BristowAndDixon.”
LOLz! Ch-ch-check out the funny mart (below):
While we don’t exactly know why Garner was trying to reach out to Lumbly, we can take a wild guess and seem it had something to do with the recent reunion the tint of Alias had to gloat the 20th year-end of the series premiere. She made her TikTok debut for the special occasion, sharing photos of her co-stars from the show and clips of them reuniting in person. Michael Vartan, Victor Garber, Gina Torres, Kevin Weisman, and increasingly made an appearance. Take a squint (below):
We’re here, we’re older, but we still got it. #FirstTikTok #Alias20

On the ‘gram, Garner, who planed Sydney Bristow on the series, moreover penned a lengthy message to honor the occasion, specifically thanking creator J.J. Abrams for pushing the team “through and past the norm.” She then added:
“Since the end of the show, April of 2005, running into a tint or hairdo member from Alias has unchangingly led to this question — When will you get everyone when together for a reunion? The 20th year-end seemed like as good an excuse as any, so the undeniability went out — reunion party is happening, pass it on! We missed everyone who was working and couldn’t make it in. We missed you, Jabrams, (because I screwed up and made this happen on a night you were busy). But man, it felt so good to be together again.”
Hopefully, Carl and Jennifer link up soon! Reactions to the reunion??? Let us know in the comments (below).
