my role in 3d movie "shakey" shooting in chicago

in honor of the emmy nominations being announced tonight (hoping for another one- pray for me!), and the upcoming chicago international film fest coming up that I blogged about yesterday, thought I would share this funny & quick video mix of me on set for my role w/a hairless rat in the new 3d movie that just wrapped in chicago!

speaking of filming in chicago, as I explained when I hosted the CBS Morning show a few weeks back, hollywood is finally recognizing how great our city is for filming more and more every year! transformers 3, Ron Howard's "cheaters" & the tv show "ride along" are just a few examples of the many, all flocking here to shoot in chicago making it a critical character in their story telling, not to mention pumping millions into our economy, like "transformers" who just contributed at least $20mil!.

Kevin Cooper's "Shakey" is a family comedy starting Steve Lemme (Super Troopers), Beverly D'Angelo (Entourage, National Lampoon's Vacation) & Steve Guttenberg and is about a widower who moves to Chicago with his 10-year-old daughter and their adorable dog Shakey. After they move into their new swanky condo, they discover dogs are not allowed and come up with a hilarious plan to keep him with them! It is a heart-warming story about family, loyalty, and love.
