Josh Holloway ("Lost") and Joe Manganiello ("True Blood"), who are in town filming the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Ten, stopped by the Cirque du Soleil Totem premiere at Atlantic Station last Friday night.

— In other Ten news, Arnold Schwarzenegger himself dropped by Puff N Stuff on Lawrenceville Highway earlier this week to buy some cigars after filming.

John Leguizamo (here filming Ride Along) was spotted eating veal meatballs and spaghetti Wednesday at Cucina Asellina in Midtown with co-star Bryan Callen (The Hangover).

Filming Updates

Ten, which has been filming in Tucker and along Clairmont Rd in Decatur, was filming behind the Midway Pub in East Atlanta on Tuesday.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is still in town for now, but will move to Hawaii at the end of November.

Ride Along, starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, has begun filming. The movie is about a “rogue cop who invites his sister’s fiancé, a white, well-to-do psychiatrist, on a ride-along.” The production set up Wednesday and Thursday around Underground Atlanta, and the Atlanta Police Department warned that gunfire heard in that area on those days was from the set, and not because it's Underground Atlanta.

— Don't forget that Walking Dead Locations still has their photo sharing posts up for sneak peeks of the set.

— Speaking of "The Walking Dead," here's an interview with my crush David Morrissey who plays "The Governor," and how he might have cribbed a few accent vowels from Bill Clinton. As for the weather down here? “It’s very hot. It’s very buggy. There are snakes and ticks and chiggers and all sorts of things. It’s a challenging environment. But I love it.”


— Cirque du Soleil needs new performers and will hold auditions in Atlanta in early December. Go to Cirque's site for details.
