Star Sightings – Experience Them Yourself!

Written by Lauren S.

It’s been a great month for celebrity sightings in Atlanta! Several movies are currently filming in the Atlanta area, making our city a film lover’s paradise.

Jon Hamm and John Stamos were spotted at the W Hotel in midtown. They met up with a group of friends in the “Living Room” bar area. Jon is visiting Atlanta to film the movie “Million Dollar Arm”, in which he plays a sports agent recruiting for Major League Baseball. John is here filming his recurring role on “Necessary Roughness.” He plays Connor McClaine, who founded his own sports and entertainment company. We also spotted John at Ecco, where he happily posed for pictures with diners and also at Atlantic Station.

Jon Hamm is one of our faves!

We spotted two of the stars of the new thriller “Solace” at the Lobster Bar at Chops. Sir Anthony Hopkins and Jeffrey Dean Morgan enjoyed a meal at the popular Buckhead restaurant.

“Need for Speed” star Michael Keaton took a break from filming to enjoyed a meal at Davio’s. His film is about street racers, but Michael’s visit to the celebrity friendly restaurant was low key. Michael is here in Atlanta after filming in Blue Ridge.

Andy Garcia was in Atlanta to film the movie “Let’s Be Cops.” Andy was spotted at South City Kitchen’s midtown location.

The stars came out for “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes’ wedding! NeNe remarried her ex-husband Greg Leakes on June 22. Radar Online is reporting the couple’s ceremony and reception took place at the Intercontinental Buckhead Hotel. The ceremony was officiated by television Judge Greg Mathis. Also per Radar Online several other Bravo stars came to Atlanta for the wedding. Celebrity guests included The Millionaire Matchmaker Patty Stanger, Real Housewife of Orange County’s Gretchen Rossi and her fiancée Slade Smiley, Vivica Fox and ex Real Housewife of New York Jill Zarin with her husband Bobby.

Atlanta Movie Tours will be on the look out for celebrity sightings during shoots for several upcoming movies. The sequel to “Dumb and Dumber” with Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels will begin production soon. The film will be released in 2014. “Blended” starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore will begin shooting at Lake Lanier this summer. We are looking forward to spotting the stars and sharing the information with you!
