First, actor Billy Zane was spotted at The Southern on Wednesday night by local trivia master Kipper Schauer, who reported it via Twitter. No word on why Zane was in town. Zane, probably most well-known for his role in Titanic, just signed on to a new project, according to hollywoodreporter.com:
Billy Zane has joined the cast of indie Supreme Ruler, starring Ron Livingston.
Marking the feature directorial debut of Duane Edwards, Supreme Ruler also will star Natalie Zea, Vincent D’Onofrio, Marcia Gay Harden and Brian Geraghty.
The drama with comedic sensibilities follows a small-town man (Livingston) who dreams of becoming “Supreme Ruler” of his local Buffalo Lodge, but is challenged by a hard-drinking womanizer (D’Onofrio)
Also Wednesday night, actor Zach Galifianakis, who is filming a new comedy in Asheville this summer, was spotted at Cucina 24 restaurant with Lorne Michaels, a producer on the film. The two were sitting with a group of about 10 people.
