Yesterday I was on the set of Untouchable, which is filming in the Philadelphia area as well as NYC for the next 6 weeks. (source) The movie is based on The Intouchables an original French-language film which grossed $416 million overseas and $10 million domestic. It told the based-on-a-true-story take of an aristocrat (Francois Cluzet) who, after being injured, hires a young man (Omar Sy) from the wrong side of the tracks to be his caretaker.
Julianna Margulies arrived late in the afternoon. She’s not on the IMDB but I can tell you she plays a love interest of Bryan Cranston‘s named lily. Here’s she’s headed to make up and costumes to prepare for scenes that’ll be shot today. Poor Julianna I completely fanned out and told her how much I loved The Good Wife. She thanked me, and went on her way as I was enveloped in joy.
Afterwards she headed to the set to meet the actors. (Interesting flared, threaded jeans. Is this a new style?)
who were filming inside the Center for Architecture (Note that NYC cab. That’s Kevin Hart’s stand in in the puffy jacket.)
In between takes Kevin Hart would pose for photos with fans
As would Bryan Cranston. I had a chance to chat with both and they’re excited to be here in Philadelphia filming. I can’t believe Bryan is 60, he looks great.
Also new to the cast
