OMG! Are you feelin’ absolutely fabulous? I know I am, and it’s not just because Sheepshead Bay has played host to the stars twice in as many weeks. If you don’t remember, Drew Barrymore visited the first week of August to film a new rom-com at Russian mob hangout, Rasputin. Well, yesterday, a new Al Pacino film titled You Don’t Know Jack, was seen shooting around Avenue U and Nostrand Avenue.

The HBO biopic centers around the life and work of doctor-assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian. Pacino plays Dr. K, while Susan Sarandon plays Janet Good, one of his most prominent patients. John Goodman – curiously – plays Kevorkian’s assistant, Neal Nicol, who is perhaps the only person in the history of humankind without a Wikipedia page. While we don’t know if any of these stars were actually present for the shoot, we’re going to say they were – because what’s celebrity reporting without a little bit of uncomfirmed rumors!

But of course, their potential presence isn’t what’s making me feel ab-fab (absolutely fabulous, for you geezers). It’s that I’ve got a direct line to Al Pacino’s crotch (what-what?!). You see, in the movie Pacino rides an old 60s bike that was rented from my girfriend’s old roommate. The bike was kept in the dark, near the entrance to the apartment, and every time I walked in – BAM! – nailed in the nuts by the handle bar, then in the shin by the pedal. Every time. And now Pacino is riding that bike. My nuts and Pacino’s nuts are a mere two degrees of separation! AB-FAB!

  1. 1st: Who you calling geezer?
    2nd: Did you mean to say October?
    3rd: Your nuts. You’re nuts. Whatever.

  3. Ned, have you checked your Wikipedia page yet?

    If you haven’t got one yet I’m sure someone is working on it right now.

    I don’t want a Wikipedia article. I have enough troubles without one.

  5. Broker: I actually scooped that shoot to Ned too but wasn’t able to get pictures. I think it’s the same movie. It makes sense they’d film at a hospital.

  6. Sorry to hear about the handlebar to the nuts, Ned. It doesn’t sound like something I’d request. I do appreciate you sparing us the pictures of your inflamed scrotum, though. I’m sure your boys are very happy about their brush with greatness even though Pacino’s gonads are likely the real geezers of the story. I hear they turn to raisins after a certain age. Perhaps, you can do a series of articles called Celebrity Sacks in Sheepshead Bay. You can set up a Crotch Watch to scope out the parade of famous and talented testes that roll into town. If you’re lucky, it could turn into a real genital circus for ya.

    ANT-MAN

  10. Thanks by the way. I just took them from using my Iphone as I drove by creating more traffic in the process. I think the last picture is Neds not mine though.

  11. There shooting on the corner of Ave U & Batchelder St. today.
    Just spoke to one of the set managers, Al Pacino is out for lunch and will be back on set at about 3 PM. I’m gonna go back there then try to get some pics.

  13. The shooting of this movie will be on Friday on Nostrand Ave and Ave R. There are NO PARKING signs posted today. Probably the location will be MICHAEL’S RESTAURANT.
