What is one to do when the temps rise but not enough to schlep your ass out to the beach? Well, when the likes of Andrew Garfield and Paul Giamatti commandeer a section of Park Avenue to film scenes of The Amazing Spider-Man II, one redirects and heads out – albeit a bit late in the day – out to the set to try your hand at a few frames of them filming on a closed set, that’s what!

Here is an embarrassing classic example of the downside to not watching TV. Boardwalk Empire, the HBO series, which stars Steve Buscemi, stopped in Yonkers, NY recently to film on location. This being a old stomping ground, one which we happened to find ourselves in, we thought we’d take a saunter by.
We’ve admittedly never watched the show and, as a general rule don’t generally watch TV – cept for maybe Big Bang Theory, and that is if we happen to be home when its on. We did however know that Michael Pitt, Paz de la Huerta and Bobby Cannavale also happen to be part of the cast (at some point in the past.) And any of these three we would gladly shoot and be happy with… Read the rest of this entry »
Looking for a celebrity can often feel like you are knee deep in that retro-throwback flick “looking for Mr. Good Bar.” At other times it can somewhat feel like running into an old friend – that you no longer speak to. Case and point: Animal Rescue Brooklyn set.
We happened on just missing our intended target – Noomi Rapace – in a hot pink top and stilettos by the narrowest of seconds. Girl caught wind that we were after a photo and made like she saw an ex-BFF and hightailed it to her awaiting car as if she hadn’t seen us at all.
We then blinked and stumbled upon Belgian hotness Matthias Schoenaerts.
But unlike the first time we laid eyes on this strapping import in Washington Heights with Zoe Saldana, where he was receptive to our lens, the time time he to was a bit more stand-offish. As if we were merely a one night stand grounded in momentary carnal desire. Read the rest of this entry »
At times one gets lucky visiting a film set. Don’t know how it happens but it does. The Animal Rescue set, presently filming on location throughout Brooklyn and Queens, starring Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace, happened to be one of those times. We arrived minutes before the talent came on – one after the other – to film an exterior scene with their puppy.
It doesn’t get better than that y’all. Read the rest of this entry »
We heard of Dylan McDermott stopping in Yonkers, NY to film a new CBS pilot called “Hostages,” costarring Toni Collette, yesterday, and we thought ‘why not give it a go.’ Aren’t we glad we did! A quick stop by and shortly after arriving the strapping lad, script in hand, surfaced and proceeded to make his way to the set.
We have been ardent admirers of tall, dark and deep voiced hottie for sometime now and, as we stood snapping away, the thought of all the things we’d like to do to him immediately came to mind. Sue us, we think he is all types of naughty looking.
We then we arrived at wondering how is it that this man hasn’t become the poster boy for beauty incarnate. Read the rest of this entry »
Shailene Woodley, of The Secret Life of The American Teenager and The Descendants fame, can be presently found on the set of the currently filming follow up to the blockbuster creepy-crawley flick re-boot “The Amazing Spider-Man II.” The role: Mary Jane. Co-stars: Andrew Garfield and all around talent and beauty Emma Stone. (Cheers, applause, accolades!)
It’s gotta be bittersweet for her right about now.
Sure, on the one hand its quite a coup to land yourself in the thick of a guaranteed hit. No doubt something to be gleeful about. Read the rest of this entry »
What a difference having a box-office hit like the Spider-Man re-boot can make to the general disposition of an otherwise recently unknown up-and-comer like Andrew Garfield. Seriously y’all. On one of the first exterior day-shoots, of on-location filming for the highly anticipated follow up to the hugely successful The Amazing Spider-Man, in the Meat Packing district of NYC, Garfield played the evasive and stand-offish star to little end. Some would say even going as far as working overtime to keep from, not only interaction with fans but photographers alike – all of whom were anxious to get an opportunity of catching a glimpse and/or shooting the first look of the new costume debut in the current production.

For those of you who don’t know, John Hawkes is an OSCAR nominated actor. He has co-starred in countless films and is presently co-starring in Untitled Elmore Leonard Project alongside Jennifer Aniston.
We think of her as being box office poison but that is an entirely other topic.
Our own thoughts of Aniston’s on-screen success – or lack there of, aside, it was truly with her in mind that we decided to pay the set a visit during their Greenwich, CT action scene shoot which was slated to spill out onto the street and escalate into not only a fight scene but give way to a chase.

Aren’t we glad Aussie hotness Hugh Jackman is continuing his run as the adamantium clawed Wolverine! He rocks that role fiercely. Here is a look of the set while filming in Japan. Read the rest of this entry »
There are some folks that we cannot deny being die hard admirers of… Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker easily make the list. Without a doubt two of the most talented actors around. That’s fact. These two have joined forces – along with Jennifer Hudson and Jacob Latimore (not pictured) – to bring Langston Hughes’ Black Nativity classic to the big screen. The film is slated for a 2014 release and makes for a mandatory ‘save the date’ must see note. And perhaps it will arrive early enough for the x-mas end of the year season.
