The Televangelist: ATLwood Weekly Rundown (4)
Who is filming what and where in and around Atlanta.
- The photographer must have been wearing a Chelsea jersey
— Exclusive! According to our own Besha Rodell, Cameron Diaz must not be a fan of takeout since she was spotted at LeRoy's, Miller Union and Ecco this week.
— An Atlanta college is serving as a filming location - nope, not Agnes Scott. Nope, not Emory. No … not even Oglethorpe. It's SCAD! Lea Thompson was spotted at SCAD-Atlanta filming a TV movie called Gamers. Some students even got a chance to be extras. Gamers also filmed at Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville.
— Looking to
stalk catch a glimpse of the dozens of celebrities currently in town? @AJCBuzz suggests you head on over to South City Kitchen.
— Company 3, a technical and creative services firm with two sister offices in New York and Los Angeles, is opening a new facility in Atlanta. #BigTime
— Cheryl Cole (pictured) was spotted in town (looking unhappy, I'm going to guess it's related to the heat) on the set of What To Expect.
— Sports fans don't forget about our local athletes! A lot of Falcons are on Twitter (Harry Douglas, James Sanders, Tony Gonzales, Roddy White, Marquez Branson and newcomer plus candidate for Best Hair of all Falcons Players Matt Hansen for example), where they sometimes talk about going to Cactus Carwash. And don't forget about the Braves! Jason Heyward, Peter Moylan and Kris Medlen are some local Twitter-stars, to name but a few.
— Support local film making! People.com gives us a first look at the Atlanta-filmed American Pie: Reunion movie (yes, it's been that long since the first one came out. Feel old yet?)
— Check out some more info about the upcoming Billy Crystal sports movie filming in Atlanta, Us and Them, and notice there are two more films slated for filming here in the fall: Neighborhood Watch with Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller, and Flight staring Denzel Washington. #CantStopWontStop
— Dalton native J.R. Martinez, a severely burn-wounded Iraq veteran who is also an actor ("Martinez has played 'Brot Monroe' for the past three years on the daytime soap opera 'All My Children'") is slated to dance with the stars during the upcoming season (competing against the likes of Ron Artest, Kristin Cavallari, Nancy Grave, Ricki Lake … I know who I'll be rooting for!)
— A tad outside the Atlanta area, but still worth a mention: actors and film crews are being sought for three local productions in Savannah.
— No need to enter this sweepstakes: on Wednesday, What To Expect When You’re Expecting was filming at 3999 Austell Road in Austell, Georgia (and yes, Cameron Diaz was there!)
