HARRISON FORD Finally Arrives in PHILLY – Philadelphia Celebrity Sightings, yes even Miley Cyrus.

For a few weeks now a major motion picture, Paranoia, has been filming in Philadelphia with a lot of stars like Richard Dreyfus, Liam Hemsworth and Amanda Heard, but no one compares to the great Han Solo, Harrison Ford. Sightings of Ford were just rumors up until Sunday, when he flew his own plane to Philadelphia Airport Sunday afternoon.** (Source PhillyChitChat.com please)

Today it was down to business, first a meeting with producers for a business lunch, and according to Michael Klein , it happened at Parc restaurant over looking beautiful Rittenhouse Square.  Coincidentally another STARR sighting: Terrence Howard, who just finished filming another major motion picture in Philly, Dead Man Down with Colin Farrell , was sitting nearby. (Hello Phillywood, can we get that sign on Belmont Plateau? [thank you Sharon Pinkenson and the Pennsylvania Film Credits for keeping this paparazzi/columnist busy]) After lunch Howard took a stroll through Rittenhouse Square, while Ford went to the production office, where he was secured a private elevator to the floor. After his fitting, he left to go to the set of Paranoia which is filming in Whitemarsh Twp at Arbor Hill which is the 70-acre estate of former Advanta CEO Dennis Alter. 

Harrison Ford stars as Jock Goddard who owns Trion Systems, where Hemsworth’s character Adam goes to work as a spy after his boss at Wyatt Telecommunications, CEO Nick Wyatt, played by Gary Oldman, blackmails him into it. (I’m reading the book now.)

Will there be fans sleeping on the sidewalk outside the Rittenhouse Plaza for Harrison Ford like they did at AKA for Miley Cyrus?  Don’t laugh it could happen as I have been getting calls and emails from ladies and men of all ages wanting to meet him more than anyone else connected with the film ie I’m looking at you girlfriend, it’s true. A few have been wives of notable men you might see at the Union League.

Monday night, Harrison Ford and the director of Paranoia, Robert Luketic had dinner
and a business meeting at R2L. (For more R2L celebrity sightings, see below.)

Happy Birthday to Paranoia costar Embeth Davidtz who just turned 47 this past Saturday. (Same day as my sister Tracy.)

Miley and her haircut returned to Philly on the last train out of NYC Sunday night. What’s up with her rental condo, no art on the wall?

Another happy fan with Miley Cyrus. She is looking gorgeous. I hope I get another photo of Miley, but I am sincere when I say I love, love, love that Miley poses with her fans.

Not all the stars go to Starr, lately they’ve been going to R2L (Wayne Brady, Richard Dreyfuss.)  Last Wednesday DA Seth Williams served up some spirits all in the name of Pet Support Phashion Charity Affair (PSPCA).  
For the occasion, Chef Daniel Stern has
cooked up a “DA Burger” piled high with LaFrieda beef, grilled
bacon and salami, Gruyere cheese, french fries, collard slaw, heirloom tomato,
caramelized onion and R2L’s special sauce.  It’s going for $22, with
$5 from each burger benefiting PSPCA.  

This Wednesday stop by for a few brews with Christie Honigman and Teresa Nino, who will be raising money for Dana Spain’s PAWS organization.

On Saturday night at R2L  Phillies greats Darren Daulton and Pat Burrell stopped by for a couple of cocktails following the Phillies Alumni Night at the
ballpark.  Keeping it classy Pat the bat had a Grey Goose, while Daulton had a Lager. 

Saturday night Bachelor Craig Robinson met Bacherlorette NBC10’s Sheena Parvin at Opa, and then tweeted the happy occasion. Just saying.  Next up for Craig, he and his fellow bachelor pals will be seen at The Hamels Foundation Denim & Diamond event on August 27, where John Legend is scheduled to perform.  Tickets are sold out, but I’ll be tweeting through out the night with up to the minute happenings.

 America’s Best Dance Crew (from season 1), the Jabbawockeez ate dinner at Del Frisco’s last night.
