Phil Willon, a metro reporter here at the Los Angeles Times, just wrote up a fun item about the cast of the NBC series "Heroes" shooting a scene this morning at City Hall, which is right across the street from the paper’s offices (where I’m sitting right now).
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is back in Washington lobbying for federal dollars for the fourth time in two months — little did he know that he could have saved the airfare. Washington came to L.A. City Hall early this morning.
The cast and crew from the NBC show "Heroes" took over the City Hall rotunda this morning, which served as a stand-in for the U.S. Capitol, to film part of the season finale. A sign for the John Ferraro Council Chamber was pasted over with a "Senate Rules Committee" sign. (Few people noticed even though City Council was in session while the crews were filming.)
Instead of Villaraigosa, the feisty Hayden Panettiere -– the "cheerleader" -– was the one receiving the celebrity treatment, as were fellow actors Cristine Rose (Angela Petrelli) and Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman).
