John Morgan cameo in Hugh Jackman flik



If you catch the Hugh Jackman/Jake Gyllenhaal thriller “Prisoners”, which supposedly takes place in Pennsylvania, you may be surprised to see a billboard in the background for Orlando-based Morgan & Morgan.

Turns out the scene was filmed in Atlanta, where Morgan & Morgan does have a presence. John Morgan - boss of Charlie Crist and leader of the campaign to legalize medical marijuana - received a letter awhile back asking him to sign a release form granting permission for the billboard to appear in the film.

“I would have paid for it to appear,” he laughed, noting that he’s telling most people that the billboard made it in because he’s best buddies with Hugh Jackman.
