Earlier this afternoon I drove through Maplewood where the crew for Up in Air
(and the production's legion of gawkers
) have clogged nearly the entire stretch of Sutton Avenue.
Crew trailers blanket the lot outside Black Cat Theatre in Maplewood.
Now I didn't see actor George Clooney
, but other folks did. Or, at least they claimed
to have seen him.
"Oh, my Gawwwd!! There he is!" shouted a woman just when I arrived on the scene at around 1 p.m. "He just got into that limo!" I looked but couldn't see anyone behind the tinted windows of the limousine -- several hundred yards away.
Production trucks line both sides of Sutton Avenue on Thursday afternoon.
Minutes later in front of the Black Cat Theatre
another gawking group of females
yelled. "There he is! He just got into that red
Caddy [Escalade]. Yes!!"
Again, I turned just in time to see the SUV drive down the street and away from Sutton Avenue. Oh, well. Guess I can come back Friday. From what I'm told
, Clooney is to shoot his final scene in Maplewood tomorrow.
These are the folks who've walked, driven and, yes, biked their way into Maplewood for a glimpse of Hollywood.
