Spotted on the corner of Albemarle and Marlborough: Hugh Grant and Marc Lawrence filming their as-yet untitled project, a cop car parked on a curb, two “neighbors” in pajamas, La-Z Boys on the lawn, and a ton of beer being poured down the sewer drain to comply with outdoor drinking laws.
The crew was also looking for extras–did any locals participate?
Overheard: the film is supposed to take place at SUNY Binghamton University (with this scene specifically at the non-existent Beta Sigma Phi house), and Hugh Grant’s character Ray Michaels will befriend a student with a bit of a drinking problem (we’re betting Clem Ronson, played by Steven Kaplan, who just may have been removed from the house on a stretcher).
We’ve been on Hugh watch, but no sign of Marisa Tomei or Chris Elliott yet. Give us a shout if you see them around town!
