The actress is in town shooting USA miniseries “Political Animals,” in which she stars as a former first lady, now divorced, who becomes secretary of State. Local shooting takes place until June.

Actress Tèa Leoni and her daughter Madelaine (one of her two children with her “X-Files” ex David Duchovny, now of  “Californication,”) shopped along Rittenhouse Row Friday and picked up elephant and seahorse pendants from the Rare Wonder line at Lagos (18th & Walnut).

“Kids in the Hall” comedian Kevin McDonald made a surprise performance Saturday night with the Philly Improv Theater at the Shubin Theatre (407 Bainbridge). McDonald was in town teaching a workshop with Philly Improv and decided to participate in its 11 p.m. show Sketch Up or Shut Up.

West Philly native comedian David Brenner was in town last week and enjoyed lunch Thursday outside Devon on Rittenhouse Square. Brenner has lived in Las Vegas for many years.

Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and Sean Weatherspoon of the Atlanta Falcons partied with a group of seven drinking Ciroc Peach and Crown Royal cocktails as well as Moet Rose champagne Saturday night at the Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Atlantic City.
