    Professional bodyguard Christopher Boykin, a.k.a "Big Black" was mobbed by exuberant college kids as he waited at valet in front of Hotel Zaza in Dallas. Best known for his role on MTV's "Rob & Big", Big Black was friendly, funny and as laid back as one might expect if you've ever watched the show.

    "I charge by the pound," he responded when a petite blond kept snapping photos at an annoying rate. He seemed to enjoy the attention and didn't have an attitude at all. In person, he's even taller and wider than he looks on TV. He is definitely someone you want in your corner -- not coming at you.

    He called out toward an upper balcony for Rob Dyrdek but it's unclear as to whether or not his co-star and accomplished pro skater was at the hotel.
