Star Sightings

— The headline of the week is surely that Kevin Bacon stopped by Baconfest. Just being a Bacon doesn't mean you know all the rules, though: "Never been to BaconFest in Alanta before," he tweeted on Saturday. "What does one wear?"

— According to the AJC Buzz, Justin Timberlake, Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams were at Fado in Buckhead Saturday night.

— Elsewhere, Jessica Alba was spotted at Nava, while several Brick Store employees in Decatur have had "the Amy Poehler experience" (and said that both she and Adam Scott are exceptionally nice).

Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy, Steve Harvey, Regina Hall and Kevin Hart were all on hand at the Think Like A Man premiere and red carpet at Atlantic Station Wednesday.

Current Filming

— The J.J. Abrams pilot "Revolution" is filming at the Georgia Capitol.

— "Single Ladies" is filming in downtown Atlanta (including at the W).

Trouble with the Curve starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, and Justin Timberlake, filmed at Turner Field last Friday, and has moved to Dunwoody High School this week.

— Besides Baconfest, Kevin Bacon has truly been all over the state recently filming his new TV show. Most recently production occurred at Berry College.

— "The X Factor" held auditions earlier this week at the Hard Rock Downton. Anyone attend?


— The Atlanta-filmed Three Stooges, starring Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, Jennifer Hudson, Jane Lynch and some of the "Jersey Shore" crew opened this past Wednesday.

— Another locally filmed movie, American Reunion (of the American Pie series) starring Alyson Hannigan, Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Eugene Levy, Jason Biggs, Jennifer Coolidge, and Sean William Scott opens today, April 6th.

Crew / Casting Calls

— An LA based-production company is coming to Atlanta in mid-April. Check out available crew positions.

Oprah's OWN network is casting Atlanta families with tension between teens and parents (so that would be ... everyone who has teenagers). Email for info.
