Bruce Willis is spotted on the set of Lay the Favorite last week in New Orleans (May 19). Check out more pics of him on set last week here.
Bruce must really love New Orleans - Lay the Favorite is the second straight film he's done in the city (he finished production on Looper earlier this year). In late June, Bruce is scheduling to start shooting Fire with Fire with 50 Cent - his third straight film in the city!
Speaking of Looper, Joseph Gordon-Levitt told MTV News earlier this year how exciting it was to work with Bruce on the film:
"Bruce is awesome, I've looked up to that guy ever since I was a little kid, everybody did. He's such a good actor, we ran the gamut, some of the stuff we did was full on action, and then I'm like, 'Holy goddamn sh*t, I'm doing an action scene with Bruce Willis!' But then a lot of the stuff we did was like really, really smart, great Rian Johnson dialogue that makes me think of Pulp Fiction. I was so happy to work with Bruce, and he was so cool, so cool to meet, so cool to everybody, and it was a pleasure.

Joshua Jackson is seen filming his new movie Lay the Favorite in New Orleans last week (May 19). Bruce Willis was also spotted on set last week - check out those pics here.
Of course Josh also stars on the Fox series Fringe (you can see some pics of him on set here and here). In the Season 3 finale earlier this month, his character Peter Bishop was erased from history by a mysterious time paradox. So is he done with the series or what? Don't worry, says showrunner (producer) Jeff Pinkner:
"Rest assured we won't betray the audience. Taking Peter out of the story is another way to look at our series from another side. [We'll examine] what would have happened in these people's lives up to this point if [there was] no Peter."
Good to here!

Bruce Willis is spotted on the set of his new film Lay the Favorite in New Orleans last week (May 16). Cowboy up!
Also starring Vince Vaughn, Joshua Jackson, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, the movie is about a woman who teams up with a group of geeky math dudes to clean out Las Vegas sportsbooks for millions of dollars.
The film is based on Beth Raymer's 2010 memoir Lay the Favorite: A Memoir of Gambling. Raymer told Bloomberg last year that the groups biggest score "took place over the nine-day span of the 2004 NBA finals. In one of the biggest upsets in basketball history, the Pistons beat the Lakers in five games and we made one and a half million dollars."
