Tom Cruise and American Idol in Pittsburgh!

5 Oct

Tom Cruise is in Pittsburgh filming his upcoming movie, One Shot. (Fun fact? He follows @Glitzburgh on Twitter and also gave us a shout-out one day last week!)

Anyway….when Cruise and wife, actress Katie Holmes, and their daughter, Suri, weren’t busy enjoying the Milkshake Factory or Soergel’s Orchard & Farm in Wexford, they were likely taking in all that Pittsburgh has to offer.

Recently, Werner Herzog was cast to play opposite Tom Cruise in “One Shot,” as the movie’s villain, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for him around the city, too.

Last week also found celebrities Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, and Ryan Seacrest in town. They were here judging American Idol auditions at the Convention Center and also held a press conference. (From all accounts, J.Lo is STUNNING in person!)

Tell us: have you had any celebrity sightings here in “Glitzburgh” lately?

PS: Tom Cruise’s film One Shot is now casting!! If you are interested, contact Nancy Mosser Casting for more information. Call 412-621-1160 if you are interested in being an extra this weekend and next week.

Stand ↑ To Cancer – Don’t forget to tune in to SU2C tonight and stand up to cancer. #beatcancer

The S↑2C  benefit concert and telethon fundraiser is a star-studded show bringing celebrities together to raise money and awareness for cancer.

According to the website,

“Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) one-hour, commercial-free telecast will air on Friday, September 10, 2010 at 8PM EST & PST / 7PM CT on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, Discovery Health, E!, G4, HBO, HBO Latino, MLB Network, Showtime, The Style Network and TV One and over 30 online streaming partners like AOL, Yahoo! and YouTube.

The SU2C broadcast is dedicated to the 12 million U.S. cancer survivors illustrating how groundbreaking research can change the tide in the fight against the disease.

This year’s event will feature Lady Antebellum, Green Day, Leona Lewis, Queen Latifah, Natasha Bedingfield, Martina McBride, Stevie Wonder, and more as musical guests, and will also feature other special guests such as Mandy Moore, Katie Couric, Ryan Seacrest, Rob Lowe, Sally Field, Vanessa Hudgens, Kathy Bates, Diane Sawyer, Dr. Oz, and more. Another special guest is Survivor reality star Ethan Zohn, who, interestingly, is a cancer survivor himself (and also dating hometown Survivor winner Jenna Morasca.)

Of course, a question on everyone’s minds is whether or not actor Michael Douglas will be in attendance following the news of his own cancer diagnosis.
