This morning Vince Vaughn was spotted in the most unlikely of places, The Choo Choo Restaurant in Des Plaines, Il.
Vaughn was in town to shoot a scene for a new TV pilot, which he is directing.
Vince actually grew up in the area and attended nearby Buffalo Grove High School where he played football and wrestled, and later graduated from Lake Forest High School, which is also near Des Plaines.
The pilot is being produced by Vail Romelin under Funny Little Man Productions LLC. Peter Billingsley (best known as Ralphie from A Christmas Story) is also working on the project. The show is about “a bunch of kids in the suburbs who get their first place in the city,” Vaughn told the crowd who had stopped by to check out the set.
“It’s such a great spot to shoot in Des Plaines,” Vaughn said of the Choo Choo Restaurant and surrounding area.
More pictures of Vince greeting the crowd can be found here.
You can also see an interview with Vince about the shoot here.
Its unknown at this time how long Vince and his crew will be filming in the area, but if you catch Vince filming on location in the suburbs of Illinois over the next few days, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
