The Five Year Engagement is filming today at Zingerman’s Bakehouse, 3711 Plaza Drive, Ann Arbor. The Bakehouse and the Creamery are still open. Today I enjoyed Pecan bread and a raspberry gelato for dessert!
They’re filming in the baking area of the Bakehouse, and you can see the set through the glass window in the store although screens and reflection make it a little difficult! Jason Segel and Emily Blunt were on set, although I didn’t recognize either of them at first. No pictures of Emily today, but we did almost rub shoulders in the store. When someone called her Emily and started fixing her hair I finally realized. I think managing to not recognize the movie star lost me some serious Movie Stalker Points today. There are Movie Stalker Points, right?
Squint and you can see the cameras and screens through there. Really. Apparently Jason’s character is a baker at the real Zingerman’s. It’s very cool that Zingerman’s will get actual credit in the movie. See, Rick Snyder? How good is this for Michigan businesses? Very, of course. But no one reading this blog thinks otherwise, so I’m obviously preaching to the choir.
See that big guy in the woolly hat?
Yes, it’s Jason Segel with some interesting facial hair. There was more, but he peeled it off right in front of me. Looked like it hurt.
Add several Movie Stalker Points for this. Take off a couple because my flash was turned off. Also I think I may have lost one for not getting any pictures of Emily Blunt who was right behind me.
Jason says he is having a blast in Ann Arbor!
