Star sightings, filming updates

62157_1540145216169_1011078506_1555950_697850_nGood Monday morning. It will be hard to compete with the news about Southwest buying AirTran, and the ongoing Bishop Eddie Long story, but we’ll do our best.

Sherry Stringfield, Lou Diamond Phillips and Jamie-Lynn Sigler are here working on a pilot for Lifetime.

Deadline Hollywood said the project is a drama that “centers on police detective Molly Collins (Stringfield), married mother of two on the verge of divorce, who, along with her partner Brooke Kross (Sigler), investigate the city’s most high-profile crimes while navigating their divergent personal lives. Phillips will play their boss, a police lieutenant.”

Does that sound a bit like TNT’s popular new cop drama “Rizzoli & Isles,” starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander, to you? That show, by the way, has been renewed for another season.

Anyway, Stringfield, Phillips, Sigler, along with actor-director-producer Tim Matheson, had dinner at Pricci Friday night. Matheson has been involved with numerous Lifetime projects. It’s not clear if he’s involved with this as-yet unnamed pilot. In any case, the quartet was nice enough to pose for this photo with Pricci servers Belinda Goletski and Roderick Stuart during their visit.

In filming news, “The Lost Valentine,” which is the Hallmark Channel movie starring Betty White and Jennifer Love Hewitt, is shooting here this week. The crew is on Howell Mill today, so if you’re over that way and wonder what’s up with all the cameras … mystery solved. And the new Lucy Liu romantic miniseries called “Marry Me” is filming at the High Museum of Art today.

Not even a mention of FAST5 even though it’s in the traffic reports all through midday? Out of touch or what?

That’s funny about Marry Me, my house was considered (but unfortunately not chosen) for the shoot. They were going to use it for the lead’s house. Guess that’s Lucy Liu. Would have been nice, but oh well!

Its always nice to see stars make it from the adult film industry into mainstream shows like Sasha Alexander. It all started with her moving to Entourage as Vince’s new girlfriend and quickly transitioned into a TNT show.

Which reminds me of the time that I tried to become an adult entertiner. The director had me come in for a brief interview where I went through a preliminary question and answer session followed by some actual ‘on the job work.’ Well I didnt get paid for it and never heard back from him, but boy was it fun. Its a shame the temperature in the interview room was so cold, though. That may have had a negative impact on my performance…not that warmer temperatures would have made a difference anyway if you know what I mean lol

TOM you need to apply to be the new UGA VIII if you can do that. You will get to run on the football field and plop down on the 50 yardline and do it in front of 82k wite rednecks cheering you on. That has to be better than making a Porn Flick.

I hear ya 5150. If it wasn’t for Obama and that damn railroad construction I keep listening to, we’d all be reading about the nWo on our internets. When I can’t fumble the kitchen KETTLE anymore I’m going to look back to your 50 yard line plop down because that’s how MARTHA STEWART did it in her day. For once I’d really like to bend a cow bell out of your napkins so I don’t have to see my kids play HOPSCOTCH in the RAIN.

When I saw the link that said Jennifer Love Hewitt was stopping traffic in Atlanta, I was hoping she was doing the same thing the girls from Vampire Diaries were doing a few months back (flashing the cars from a 285 overpass). If anyone knows Jennifer and can get her ear, I will be heading home up the east side wall of 285 between 4:30 and 5:00pm. I will be keeping an eye out for her on the overpasses. I know that I and my fellow male commuters would certainly appreciate her enhancement of the ride home.

“I just wanted see how people would react to it because that what maid her a star and since Halloween is coming .”

Ok, so you wanted to see how people would react to you writing the name of a teen horror movie that came out 10 years ago because it “maid” her a star? What kind of reaction were you looking for? I can’t believe people aren’t freaking out that you brought up I Know What You Did Last Summer, because, OMG Halloween is like 4+ weeks away!! And what’s with the space before the period? Head for the mountains ryan, just get the hell out of here.

You tell ‘em Steve. We need to be able to have civilized discussion about the Hallmark Channel’s made for TV movie “The Lost Valentine.” I hope you’re wearing a helmet up there on your high horse.

Howell Mill ain’t that long so as you can’t find the location if it really means that much to you. JLH is staying in the W hotel if that helps.
