Ides of March in Clawson, Michigan

It was a crazy day in Clawson, Michigan when George Clooney came to town to film his movie, Ides of March. Twitter started buzzing early in the morning with rumors of where the set would be today, but it was soon confirmed as Nick’s Country Oven on 14 Mile in Clawson.

For most of the morning, however, the filming was being done a block west of the diner, at a doctor’s office, with new signs that identified it as Oakley Women’s Clinic of Cincinatti.

George Clooney and Ryan Gosling were spotted now and again, but they were mainly filming inside the building and visibility wasn’t good until later in the day when they began shooting a scene outside the building right on 14 mile. By this time the crowds had grown and had to be managed out of the shoots. I have to say though, this crew and the security were the nicest I’ve come across in all my movie stalking. Obviously everyone wanted pictures of George Clooney, and security obliged. Oneof the crew said that this was because George Clooney is a “very nice man.”  I think most of the crowd today would agree with that sentiment.

Ryan Gosling seemed pretty popular too. Pictured here today without his dog! And Evan Rachel Wood was also on set, filming both inside and outside the clinic.

And of course the man himself.
