Asheville Celebrity Update
Since our most recent update on the Hollywood stars' appetites for local cuisine, there have been even more sightings, placing SNL alumnus Jason Sudeikis at All Souls Pizza with Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig at the counter at Farm Burger downtown, and a few cast members--including Devin Ratray and Ken Marino--at an Asheville Tourists baseball game on a recent Thirsty Thursday.

Filming is expected to take place right in the center of downtown Asheville tomorrow and Wednesday in the area of Pack Square Park. Visitors to the area should be aware of street closings, which are detailed on the Ashvegas blog here. Several 1990s-era armored cars have also been spotted around town.
Actor Bryan Cranston, known for his role as Walter White on AMC's hit series Breaking Bad, was in town this past weekend on some personal business. He was seen at Trader Joe's and later at the Omni Grove Park Inn.
And actress Jenny Slate, who has appeared on Parks & Recreation and Bob's Burgers, and who was behind the internet sensation video Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, is also in town hanging out with friends. She referred to Asheville in a tweet as "the most beautiful place"--we agree!
