The News & Observer caption reads: “Emily Blunt and Colin Firth share a laugh during a break in filming the upcoming movie “Arthur Newman, Golf Pro” at Nash Square on McDowell.” Honestly, it looks like Emily Blunt overheard the Firth stans being interviewed and is relaying that information to him. Because he looks concerned for his safety.
Colin Firth and two actress nobody actually cares about filmed some scenes in Raleigh, North Carolina today. Please enjoy some photos and also the ramblings of a certified crazy person.
Raleigh police blocked streets and kept crowds at bay today [thank god for that, lbr] as actors Colin Firth, Emily Blunt and Anne Heche made movie magic in downtown Raleigh.
“Arthur Newman, Golf Pro,” directed by Dante Ariola, is described as a dark comedy about a man who is unhappy with his life and despised by his family. So he fakes his death and assumes a new identity in a new town. Blunt’s character is also running from her past, and the two of them begin breaking into empty homes pretending to be the absent owners.
Firth fans far outnumbered fans Blunt and Heche fans throughout the day. [You don’t say.]
Connie Crumpler and Bethany Schuelke both took half a vacation day from their jobs at Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company in Cary to stake out a spot near the filming. [I hope their boss sees this, and I hope they get fired.] Both are big fans of Firth’s work as Mr. Darcy in the 1995 BBC miniseries “Pride and Prejudice,” which has a cult-like following.
Tricia Keipper of Wake Forest is also a dedicated Darcy fan. “I have him photoshopped into my wedding pictures,” she said, producing a photo of her and her husband with Firth as Mr. Darcy in the middle. [Well, at least she didn’t superimpose Firth’s face over her husband’s, right??? And I want to know if this a wallet-sized photo and if she carries it with her always. I bet she does.]
“My husband thinks I’m crazy,” she said. [He’s not the only one.]
“Arthur Newman, Golf Pro” will film scenes at the N.C. School of Science and Math in Durham on Thursday. Other North Carolina movie locations include Wilmington, Carolina Beach, Currie, Wallace, Fairmont, Lumberton and Graham. [I have class tomorrow. Someone else, put on ur stalking shoes.]
