Hey Chicagoans, did you see any celebrities this weekend? The city was crawling with them—OK, maybe that’s an overstatement. But the cast of Sin Bin hit the town Saturday night.
Louis Arroyave, the Chicago Tribune‘s man about town, documented a sliver of the action. In today’s Red Eye, which is a free commuter daily published by the Tribune, Arroyave noted: “Ben McKenzie was spotted at Rockit Bar & Grill in River North and Benny’s Chop House on Saturday. The former ‘OC’ star was in town shooting the film Sin Bin.”
True, but McKenzie wasn’t alone.
At Rockit, which is owned by Sin Bin cast member Billy Dec, McKenzie was joined by his co-stars on the film: Gillian Jacobs (star of TV show “Community”) and Michael Seater, plus Sin Bin director Billy Federighi (a Chicagoan), writer Chris Storer (another Chicagoan), costume designer Elie Kaya (a Chicago resident), and Sin Bin producer Gary Giudice.
After Rockit, Gillian headed to the airport, while the rest of the Sin Bin-ers made their way to Lucky Strike bowling alley, where they were joined by more cast members: Bo Burnham, Emily Meade, Brenda Marie King, and Gabe Notarangelo, and the film’s wardrobe supervisor, Marissa Craig.
At Lucky Strike, Michael Seater signed some autographs and posed for photos.
Then they all went to Benny’s Chop House, where Sin Bin executive producer Dante Federighi met up with the cast and crew.
Sounds like it was one enchanting evening.
