Allison Janney on St. Mark’s Place for new film, Tallulah.

Juno co-stars Ellen Page and Allison Janney were spotted last week filming Tallulah and we stumbled on them again today on St. Marks Place between Second and Third Avenues. Amidst the flow of spandex-wearing visitors in and out of 12 St. Marks (home to Yoga for the People), the two casually dressed actresses stepped out of the building for a lunch break.

Get ready to spot some stars — the movie Maggie’s Plan, starring Julianne Moore, Ethan Hawke and Greta Gerwig, is slated to begin filming in the East Village next month.

Gird your lofts. North Brooklyn is set to be enshrined (yet again) in the ageless portals of our most glorious medium—I’m talking of course of television—in a pair of NBC/Universal productions currently in pre-production. And the studio wants YOU to help make it happen.

Location scouts for both The Slap (a miniseries based on Christos Tsiolkas’ celebrated novel of the same name) and Mr Robot (a pilot about a young, socially awkward programmer who decides he can only connect to people by hacking them) have been loitering and flyer-posting in the Williamsburg/Bushwick vicinity.
