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.
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.
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.
