Ian McKellen seems quite a sport. He was filming in my home town a few years ago - Da Vinci Code.
I know my post goes very off topic, sorry, but this is such an odd coincidence. The square next to my street (and the beginning of my street) was turned into Italian last night. All signs and plates were changed, we got a "Trattoria", a "Farmacia" etc. and my street became "Via Longhi". It was filled with Vespas! I was walking home from work with a "!" And today I read in the news that Tom Hanks spent the night there to film the next Da Vinci Code - so I lived in BucharestBudapest Florence last night. ( link The second pic is pretty strange.)
