I'd love to meet the late P. G. Wodehouse. Judging from his books, he was quite the wit. He was also a master wordsmith. He may have written comic novels, but by all accounts he was quite serious about his work ... and it shows. I find his use of language fascinating and I'd love to discuss it with him. Also, I suspect that behind all the jolly farce, there may have been some very real wounds. I like people with hidden depths.
