UPDATED: Plus, get an extra helping of star-studded action with this week's celebrity update.

Asheville is buzzing this summer, thanks to the presence of several movie stars in town for the filming of an untitled comedy. And after a hard day's work on the set, these stars are hungry--and thirsty!

Check out where Hollywood's finest have been seen digging in to some local cooking:

12 Bones Smokehouse hosted funnyman and Western N.C. native Zack Galifianakis earlier this month.

Lexington Avenue Brewery was one of the first stops for Oscar nominated actor Owen Wilson, who supposedly grabbed a pint and chatted with locals about his role in the Pixar film Cars.

Quite the thirsty star, Wilson has also been spotted out on the town at The Imperial Life and Lex18, grabbing coffee at Battery Park Book Exchange and sampling some local juices from Roaming in the Raw at a local tailgate market. He also ate his veggies at popular local vegan restaurant Plant.
Film producer and Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels was seen on Wall Street at The Market Place earlier this summer, and more recently dining out with cast members at Cucina 24 right next door.

Kristen Wiig, who has kept a low profile during her time in Asheville, was seen dining at Curate tapas bar this week.

Filming for the movie, which is based on the true story of a 1990s bank heist, is expected to continue into August, so the list of celebrity-favorite menus is likely to grow. Actor Jude Law also ordered up some local flavors this summer, when he was in town for an unrelated project.

Action! More movies filmed in Asheville
