“Game Change” is filming at the Tremont Grand, right around the corner from TDR’s offices, and security and set people have told us that Harrelson’s supposed to make an appearance Monday to shoot a scene.
The made-for-TV movie about the 2008 presidential election is filming around the state, and has made its way to downtown Baltimore. Harrelson plays Steve Schmidt, a senior campaign adviser to Sen. John McCain. Also set to star in the movie is Julianne Moore, Ed Harris, and a bunch of other people.
In case you’ve been walking around Charles Street lately and noticed the orange and black “Denali” signs, it’s for Denali Productions Inc., a commercial production company. If you’re curious, president Bob Carmichael’s site is here, showing the array of other work they’ve done.
While a few of us TDR staff walked right through a scene shortly before 11 a.m., none of the actors were him. One set man quipped that Harrelson hadn’t woken up yet, while a security guard told us that we may not get to see him on account of his entourage.
The day is still early, Mr. Harrelson.
