When the cameras stopped rolling each night some of the stars of '42' went out on the town. 13WMAZ visited some downtown businesses to see how the stars spent their time off set.
When the director called cut, some actors took in the sights and local flavor of downtown Macon. "Harrison Ford had a Rockin Cheddar Ranch beef burger with cheddar cheese and jalepenos and had coleslaw." says Assistant Manager at the Rookery, Wayne Temple.
Temple says Harrison Ford and Christopher Meloni stopped by. He says Meloni tried a Georgia favorite, fried green tomatoes, and they both autographed the wall.
A waitress at Lemongrass offered their signature drink named after the "42" actor Harrison Ford to the actor himself. "She didn't realize that it was him and she went to the table and started talking about our Harrison Ford drink special and they started laughing and then she looked and realized who it was and you know they just all kind of laughed about it," says Amber Pierce, Manager at Lemongrass.
And if you're wondering what's in a "Harrison Ford" Pierce explained, "Pearl vodka, with Kahlua, and Irish cream, and it's on the rocks. It's a really sweet drink like a White Russian."
But she says Ford didn't taste the drink named after him, instead he ordered a beer.
T.R. Knight and Brett Cullen became regulars at the Hummingbird. According to general manager, Tim Obelgoner. "I enjoyed Brett a lot. He's a great guy. He really is real cool guy. He was up picking some guitar strings on stage last night. We had open mic night, hung out with people, played some darts and had a few drinks with us," says Obelgoner.
They all agreed business was booming.
"There was less of a lag between lunch and dinner." says Rookery's assistant manager.
Lemongrass Manager, Amber Pierce says, "We've been so much busier ever since he came in."
"The general vibe on the street for the last couple of weeks has been really upbeat, there's a lot of people out. says Tim Obelgoner, Hummingbird General Manager.
