SEE COLIN FARRELL FILM. The STARRS Eat Out; SIGOURNEY WEAVER TIDBITS,& OTHER CELEB SIGHTINGS
I completely forgot to mention on Fox 29 that last weekend Colin traveled to Virginia to attend his sisters wedding, then after that he headed to Mexico to promote his summer blockbuster, the remake of “Total Recall”, guess Arnold won’t be back. This week he’s lying low as the movie Dead Man Down has started filming. On air I discussed that the photos we take help promote Philadelphia internationally, as the movie is set in NYC and only if you’re from Philly will you see parts of the city, for the rest of the world they’ll see NYC. This is what I meant by that UK Daily Mail I can sometimes say things that don’t make sense as my head is full of lots of tidbits but I never know which way the conversation is going to go.
This week filming will be on the SS United States, then will move to Walnut Street. (PicturePhilly)
will star Colin Farrell (“Miami Vice”, “Crazy Heart”, “Alexander”),
Terrence Howard (“Hustle and Flow”, “Iron Man”), and Noomi Rapace (“The
Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”, “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”).
Saturday I was judging the Oyster Shucking Contest at the Oyster House on Sansom Street. OMG I had no idea the degree of difficulty judging a contest like that, and on top of it getting Sigourney Weaver sightings all over town. It was a beautiful day with lots going on like, Comcast Cares Day at the Comcast Shopping & Food Court on the basement level of the Comcast Building. I had just photographed that event before arriving for my judging duties. (Above my other judges, Kristina Jenkins, Where Magazine and Allison Stadd, uwishunu)
The overall winner was Tiny from Capital Grille restaurant. He’s biting into his golden oyster.
|On Saturday, during my judging of the shuckers, Sigourney Weaver, here in town to film an USA Channel mini series called “Political Animals”, was spotted having brunch at the Continental Midtown on Saturday. She then headed for a bit to the Parkway for the Phila Science Festival, then walked to the Rittenhouse Square area with 3 friends and did a bit of shopping at the Farmers Market. She bought a bouquet of flowers before heading back to her rented home in the Rittenhouse area. Last week it was reported that she and Carla Gugino dined together at Le Castagne (1920 Chestnut); what wasn’t reported was the entire cast from the upcoming cable show was at the dinner. They were running over the production schedule.|
|Monday night I was honored to be included on the very small invite list of Chef Jennifer Carroll’s pop up restaurant at Meme. Jen is preparing for her new restaurant Concrete Blond, and was trying out some of the recipes.|
