Saturday, December 27, 2014::Cameras were rolling in the 'Burgh

What a year.

Aaron Paul invited the world to join him, Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long for a drink at Jack’s on the South Side during the making of “Fathers & Daughters.”

“Southpaw” co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams sparked gossip after being photographed dining at Meat and Potatoes, Downtown, and Alec Baldwin recently broke bread with Dr. Cyril Wecht at Dish Osteria on the South Side.

The day Channing Tatum wore a thin coating of baby oil — and a wrestling singlet — so his character could be photographed, as Steve Carell’s oddball John du Pont paced back and forth, was an encouraging, confidence-building sign for “Foxcatcher” director Bennett Miller.

Thursday, December 18, 2014::'Foxcatcher' filmmaker Miller drawn to odd story

It was such a strange, shocking and unlikely crime that seemed almost implausible — even for Hollywood.

The scion of one of the nation's most illustrious family names and one of its greatest fortunes, John du Pont, started his own wrestling team, with dreams of Olympic glory in mind. He took two brothers, both already Olympic gold-medal winners, under his “tutelage.”
