Water For Elephants

Just returned from a couple of days in Chattanooga where they are filming Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, Christoph Waltz and Hal Holbrook, Francis Lawrence is directing. It's a great book and has a great cast. The highlight of it all was when Christoph (Inglorious Bastards) decided after his last day of shooting on Tuesday to "buy us a drink." So there we were in this bar that had closed down for us (much of the cast and production folks, my guests (Justin Stelter, Phillippi & Jenilee Vander Elst, Nathlie & Tyler Stewart) and me. Was glad not to have paid the bill!

Christoph and Rob are as good as it gets when it comes to being gracious to those around them. JUst outside the bar, hundreds of women stood through the night. Several tried to break in, but were taken out. It was crazy and fun and involved a lot of alcohol.
