This week Atlanta got some help going on - Billy Crystal explains how to raise kids, Kim Kardashian gives marriage advice and Tim Gunn is coming to town to help us "make it work." Plus, as always, "The Walking Dead" fights off our zombies. Now who's going to take care of MARTA and GRTA?
— The AJC's Jennifer Brett sat down with Billy Crystal this week, who's filming
Us and Them Call Me Article Parental Guidance here in Atlanta. Locales this week included the Gwinnett Braves Stadium, Independence High School in Alpharetta, Piedmont Park and possibly Euclid Ave. [via OLV]
— Another "Walking Dead" connection, Atlanta native Scott Wilson (“X-Files," "CSI) has joined the cast as Hershel Greene, a veterinarian who gives medical attention and shelter to the survivors.
— Since "The Marriage Counselor" has been filming in Midtown all week, you may have spotted Kim Kardashian around town.
— Some news about the Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller flick "Neighborhood Watch" - a neighborhood flyer gives us a few behind-the-scenes clues to the movie: "buildings around the Square will have an aged appearance, painted signs, covered awnings and window displays replaced in stores. Shots around the Square will be used to portray the fictional All-American city in the movie. Friday evening, crews will turn off lights around the Square and on top of buildings to create a dark, scary, alien-friendly atmosphere. In the movie, Stiller teams up with three other members of his community to form a Neighborhood Watch group, which is the last hope to save the neighborhood and world from being destroyed." Because people are always trying to destroy Atlanta! (zombies, werewolves, vampires, aliens...)
— For now, the crew is safe and sound, filming in studio (at Screen Gems here in town).
— Anyone have the scoop on what was filming on Forsyth Street and Mitchell Street on Thursday?
— Our guy (hey, he was born in Fulton, we can claim him!) is a really nice guy - Jeff Foxworthy is helping out the homeless in Gwinnett.
— Is your home or business haunted? Sorry to hear about that … but now you can profit from it! The Syfy Channel's 'Haunted Collector' is looking for haunts - You can send phenomena, location & history to firstname.lastname@example.org.
— Want to be in a fashion show hosted by Tim Gunn? Casting call is on November 10th, but in the meantime check out this interview (with the details) with the man himself!
— One last casting call: Oxygen’s "Bad Girls Club" is inviting local females to attend an open casting call for Season 9 in Atlanta on Saturday October 29th from 10:30am — 5:30pm at the 5 Seasons Westside (1000 Marietta Street, Atlanta, GA 30318) - Good luck!
— Finally, I want to give a shout to the Atlanta Street Fashion Bbog (and not just because I got snapped with my mod ex-Loaf friend Layla Bellows at the Little 5 Parade) - Atlanta does not get noticed for good fashion, but we have it! Think of this as our own local Sartorialist - I am happy to see the city getting some of the recognition we deserve!
