Hollywood hits Tallahassee




Adams Street in Tallahassee was mobbed Monday morning. But the usual lobbyists and lawmakers scene was replaced by a film crew. In this scene, reporters crowd Al Gore's chief of staff, Ron Klain (played by Kevin Spacey) and Gore attorney David Boies (Ed Begley Jr.), on Adams street in front of Andrews restaurant.

The HBO movie "Recount" drew a number of stargazers who witnessed the real 2000 recount. "As far as I remember, there wasn't much happening in this area," said Wade Bishop, a producer for the City of Tallahassee watching the filming on Monday who worked for a CBS affiliate during the recount.

The crew filmed inside the Florida Supreme Court on Sunday, and Buzz hears that Justice Barbara Pariente stopped by and introduced herself to the actress who plays her. "Recount" will be filmed in Tallahassee through the end of the week. (Photo: Wade Bishop.)
