Welcome to Pennsylvania, Mr. McT…Sorry About the Blizzard

Richard Armitage isn’t the only Hobbit cast member to score a new role and head to North America for filming recently. Graham McTavish is currently in Philadelphia to shoot Creed, the zillionth installment of the Rocky franchise. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that he’s in my state, eating cheese steaks and drinking Yuengling and waiting for  it to stop snowing like the rest of us. Where I’m sitting, in the Allegheny Mountains, there’s about tenish inches on the ground right now but down east they’re getting hammered. NBC in Philadelphia is predicting an accumulation of a foot today and tomorrow in Southeastern PA and New York City and New Jersey are expected to get fourteen to twenty inches in some places. I really feel for Mr. McT since he came from summer in the southern hemisphere to this. Sorry, dude. Stay safe and stay warm and have a great stay. If you need to go anywhere, might I suggest PA Cross Country Skiing?
