I met sad news when I showed up on the impromptu set of “The Internship,” starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, earlier today: I had just missed them both.

The production, which has shut down 25th Street between Peachtree Street and Alden Avenue for most of today, spread up and down the road from its base at the Studios at 25th — which looked more like a bungalow-y apartment building — with a road closed on one end and a parking lot of 10-or-so trucks at the other.

That’s what I was told when I showed up, anyway, by Cecilia and Rex, who live down the street and who’d been popping over to the set off and on all day. The pair had been timely enough to catch the stars coming and going from the set earlier — Vince even waved at Cecilia; Owen, Rex said, looked about nine years old — and crafty enough to walk up a hill behind the building so they could snap a few pictures of the cast and crew.

The day’s proceedings had been surprisingly quiet, Rex said, with no more than a handful of people stopping by at any one time to star gaze.
