No, I Didn't Get to Meet Morgan Freeman or Diane Keaton...

...as much as I would like to. But it was still fun to see the production trailers all set up on and off Broadway. This was the scene after a quick trip to the drugstore. Honestly, my heart beats just a little faster when I realize a movie is being made just a few blocks from my house. I'm a little nosy and not at all shy about asking the name of the production, who's in it and are they around. But the one staff person standing by the trailer was glued to her cell phone and working very hard not to make eye contact, and she succeeded. I didn't get to ask my usual set of questions and decided I couldn't loiter on the corner much longer.




I had good luck getting information later in the day, but alas the filming was over and there were no stars to see. But the staff person was really nice and told me that they were filming "Life Itself," with Diane Keaton and Morgan Freeman. The movie tells the story of a New York couple reflecting on their life and marriage. The description sounds great and I think it's a movie I will want to see.

That's my Thursday...the drugstore, getting used to my new shoe, blogging and oh yes, movie filming just down the street. All in a days's life in Manhattan.

Please stop by tomorrow for one of my favorite parts of the week, Random 5 Friday. As always, thanks for visiting and take good care of yourself.

I know that feeling. I grew up in a suburb of Los Angeles, and used to get that feeling whenever I'd see movie or commercial trailers. Then I went to work for an actress, and that was alot of fun too :)
Blessings,

While visiting NY a year ago, we were detoured around a scene that Ben Stiller was either in or directing. It was really cool to witness that. Mark Wahlberg has made two movies in the little towns around me in PA and I went out to watch some of the filming. People only had nice things to say about him. Unfortunately, the movies were not too good (one was The Lovely Bones).

You are so fortunate to live in NY and be around all that excitement.

That would be very exciting. Looking forward to your Friday 5.

What fun! I met Harrison Ford once, but he was not very nice. Feet of clay! You sure live in Busytown!

I love it when I come across film trailers, etc. too. When I lived in Vancouver, B.C. a number of american series and movies were always on the go. We couldn't near anyone, security was so tight. We come across sets from time to time here as well, especially in Paris, I've been quite close to some big names but didn't say a word, not even a photo. wish you had been with me. Have a good weekend.

I would be attracted to the filming too, and hover a bit, hoping to glimpse one of the stars.
