ASHEVILLE, N.C. — With two movies filming in western North Carolina, actors are popping up in Asheville like spring flowers, according to WLOS.
Woody Harrelson, already familiar with the western part of the state after acting in “The Hunger Games,” was spotted Thursday indulging his interest in chess in Pritchard Park.
Viewers told WLOS the actor wandered around downtown for a few hours–and that he’s a respectable chess player who won every game against the park’s regulars.
Harrelson is in town filming “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri,” a big-budget movie shooting in Sylva. The billboards of the movie’s title are set up in Black Mountain.
Jennifer Lopez was also spotted recently at the Omni Grove Park Inn with boyfriend Caspar Smart. The singer and actor appeared in Smart’s Instagram, chilling with him in rockers at the hotel.
Also spotted recently was Katey Sagal, who played Peg Bundy in “Married… with Children.” She’s appearing in the “Dirty Dancing” remake.
