Anybody hear about this recently? Hanks and film crew are in town filming scenes for the upcoming picture about the Maersk Alabama hijacking/pirating. The Pilot actually had an article about how he had breakfast at Charlie's Cafe on Granby yesterday, haha. People are saying he used the Tide today, and a friend of a friend said they saw him last night in Ghent somewhere. I've seen/met celebrities before, but I gotta admit I'd be stoked to get a photo with Tom Hanks.

If you get one, hope you post it! How long will they be in town? Where are they doing the shooting?

I'm not too sure. I doubt they'll be here long since filming in Virginia is supposed to be difficult and expensive (so I hear). I'll try to look around for filming locations though, and post here if I find anything. Might be cool to go watch if it's on the street somewhere!

Just read in the Pilot that filming will be done mostly off the coast of Virginia Beach, and that the production details are not being released, so they aren't saying where, when, or who is involved. Also they are rumored to be here until the end of June.

I think it'd be neat to meet Mr. Hanks. He's my absolute favorite actor and has been for a long time.

Here's the link to the photo that came out in the paper and then later it was shared on Facebook.
He ate breakfast at Charlie's Cafe and agreed to a photo with the owner. His waitress is on the right in the picture.
