  • On the set of "42"

First Person POV

— ATLwood reader Wesley was an extra on the set of the Jackie Robinson biopic 42, starring Harrison Ford. Though Wesley reports that on the last day of filming (when he was an extra) there was no sign of Ford, there were plenty of old cars and "this sweet Brooklyn Dodgers bus in Social Circle" (Pictured). Very cool.

Sightings

— According to my friend Layla, Owen Wilson had dinner at Ecco this past week. He's seriously sampling all the cuisine around town. Wilson is filming The Internship, a comedy is about two guys who start over at the bottom of the corporate ladder when they’re downsized.

T.I. and Tiny celebrated her 37th birthday this past Saturday with a dinner at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse.
