PHOTOS: Tom Cruise’s “One Shot” Filming in Pittsburgh

26 Oct

Yesterday, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette tweeted a photo of a helicopter swooping low in downtown Pittsburgh for Tom Cruise’s movie, “One Shot.”

Other photos have been posted around the web from the movie set. I gathered some to share, below. If you have any, please tweet them to @Glitzburgh!

Brad Pitt – Putting the Pitt in Pittsburgh?

22 Oct

Is Pittsburgh big enough for 2 megastars? Becoming the new Hollywood? Not only is Tom Cruise filming in the area but there may be another star in sight.

The gossip mills were churning out some good celebrity sleaze yesterday…

Rumor has it that the one and only Brad Pitt was spotted right here in downtown Pittsburgh.

Allegedly, the handsome superstar actor was seen at both the Fairmont Hotel and in the North Shore.

Thus far, there have been no certain confirmations of this, or sightings today.

Did you see Brad Pitt or do you have any info about his whereabouts or why he’s in Pittsburgh? Finishing up filming a movie, such as World War Z, or visiting for some other reason?

Tweet any sightings or info to @Glitzburgh or leave a comment! We’ll keep you posted…

PS: Pssst….did you know that Sarah Paxton recently wrapped a movie in Pittsburgh, and that hottie Bradley Cooper is filming in Upper Darby, PA?

 

Pittsburgh-Filmed ‘Abduction’ Premieres Today

23 Sep

 

 

Today is the much-anticipated release of the movie, “Abduction.” Anticipated by whom, you ask? Well, Taylor Lautner fangirls (and boys) and Pittsburgh alike have been awaiting the release of this film.

The movie was filmed in Pittsburgh last summer and the story is also based here in Da’ Burgh as well. Shoot locations include Mt. Lebanon, PNC Park, and more.

I was an extra/background actor in the flick, and though I missed the VIP Fan Premiere/Sneak Peak Advance Viewing last week in Monaca, I will be seeing the movie this weekend to see if I can spot myself and/or any familiar locations!

So, if you are looking for something to do on this rainy Pittsburgh weekend, I suggest you go see Abduction — whether you are a member of Team Jacob or Steeler Nation, the scenery surely won’t disappoint! 😉

Actor Joe Manganiello Makes Pittsburgh Appearance

13 Sep

On Saturday, I had the chance to meet actor Joe Manganiello (from True Blood) at the swanky Savoy restaurant in the Strip. Manganiello, a huge Steelers fan and acclaimed actor, was in town for a charity event at Children’s Hospital.

Below is a photo of him and me at Savoy — too bad it is so blurry!

True Blood Actor Joe Manganiello at Pittsburgh’s Savoy this SATURDAY!

8 Sep

How many of you ‘Burghers are ‘True Blood’ fans? (How could you NOT be, is a better question!) Join actor/resident hottie Joe Manganiello (who plays werewolf Alcide on the hit show) at SAVOY Restaurant & Lounge this SATURDAY September 10th, at 7pm.

Glitzburgh is thrilled that Joe is stopping by to try SAVOY’s (delish!) Award-Winning menu!

Manganiello – a Steelers fan –  hails from Pittsburgh. Last night, he was involved in an event with Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh — one time of many that he’s supported his hometown. He graduated from Mt. Lebanon High School and then went on to Carnegie Mellon University. While he’s most known at present for his critically-praised role as Alcide Herveaux on HBO’s ‘True Blood’ series, he also played Flash in the Spiderman movies, and had recurring TV roles on hit shows such as How I Met Your Mother and One Tree Hill.

So, swing by, have a Maniac Martini, and try Chef Kevin’s amazing appetizers! Hope to see you there. Check back Monday when we have all the scoop from the event!

Pittsburgh’s Joe Manganiello Returns to TRUE BLOOD this Sunday!

8 Jul

The wait is over. True Blood’s (hottest) resident Werewolf, Alcide, returns to HBO’s True Blood this Sunday.

Alcide is played by actor Joe Manganiello, and was a new addition to the supernatural series last season. Manganiello is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – specifically, Mt. Lebanon.

He has appeared in not only the wildly popular True Blood, but also the Spider Man movies, as well as TV shows How I Met Your Mother, and One Tree Hill.

Fans are pushing for an Alcide-Sookie hookup, but, according to True Blood producers, don’t count on it any time soon. Catch Manganiello in action this Sunday on HBO at 9pm.
