Helicopters Over City Part Of Jason Momoa’s Netflix Movie Shoot – CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — If you noticed helicopters flying and hovering over the city last night, there was no cause for alarm; it was just film crews continuing work on Jason Momoa’s newest Netflix movie.

“Sweet Girl” started filming right here in and around the Pittsburgh area in late 2019. Production is now continuing into the new year.

Crews were spotted near the Golden Triangle over the weekend.

A camera rig, attached to the back of a car, was set up along Stanwix Street and Liberty Avenue.

There were also lighting crews and service trucks in Gateway Center.

The helicopters flying over PNC Park and the David L. Lawrence Convention Center were also part of the excitement.

However, there were no Momoa sightings.

IMDb says he will play a grieving father protecting his daughter while trying to get justice in his wife’s death.

Point Park grads capture picture-perfect moment with Tom Hanks in Pittsburgh | TribLIVE.com

Danette Levers changed her Facebook profile picture at 7:34 a.m. Friday.

There’s a pretty good chance she won’t ever change it again.

She waited for months to upload that photo of her standing next to Tom Hanks. She idolizes the actor. She can recite most of his movie lines from the likes of “Big” and “Forrest Gump.”

Levers finally met Hanks in Pittsburgh. Her best friend Missy Finnell captured the moment in a photo.

Levers wasn’t allowed to upload it until the movie “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” premiered nationwide last week. Hanks plays Pittsburgh’s favorite neighbor, the late Fred Rogers. The connection between Levers and Hanks began when she was 13 years old. Her father had died. She turned to watching Hanks’ films to help her through her grief.

Former Fox Anchor Shepard Smith Donates Half a Million to Press Freedom Group

Former Fox News anchor Shepard Smith made a surprise donation of $500,000 to the nonprofit Committee to Protect Journalists during a speech Thursday night in which he did not mention Donald Trump by name, but alluded to him on multiple occasions. “Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon,” Smith said. “We don’t have to look far for evidence of that.” The speech at the International Press Freedom Awards dinner was the first public appearance for Smith since he abruptly left the channel last month. “We know that journalists are sometimes wary of being perceived as activists for some cause,” he said. “But press freedom is not the preserve of one political group or one political party. It’s a value embedded in our very foundational documents. Journalists need to join hands to defend it.” Smith was a founding staffer of Fox News, where he worked for the last 23 years.

Some people wait a lifetime for a reunion like this!

On an episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show that aired on Wednesday, host and singer Kelly Clarkson reunited with the three people that helped make her famous: Simon CowellPaula Abdul and Randy Jackson.

Sarah Palin’s husband ‘files papers for divorce’ – BBC News

The ex-Alaska governor and her husband found it “impossible to live together”, court documents show.

The Palins, both 55, married in 1988 and have five children together.

The documents mention “an incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife”.

They include the initials rather than full names of the two parties – SLP for Sarah Louise Palin and TMP for Todd Mitchell Palin – but identify the couple’s marriage date and the birth date of their only child who is a minor, Trig Palin.

They are asking for joint custody of the child, according to the papers.
