Asheville celebrity spotting: Minka Kelly in area for film shoot


Word on the street is that actress Minka Kelly is in the Asheville area for the continued filming of the independent film The World Made Straight, a movie version of local author Ron Rash’s novel of the same name.

The filming, happening around the Black Mountain area mostly, has brought Noah Wyle (former ER star) and Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) to the area. And a couple of weeks ago, British pop star Ellie Goulding was seen around Asheville. Goulding has been romantically connected with Irvine.

Kelly, perhaps best known for her work in Friday Night Lights, has a starring role in the new movie and recently posted the following on her Twitter account. It looks to me like the view from the top of Chimney Rock:

Hiked to the top of the mountain today and this was our reward. Beautiful.

Thanks to loyal readers for the continued heads-up about the celebrity spottings.

Can Derek Jeter be far behind?
