Corbin Bernsen looked a lot like his “LA Law” character Arnie Becker on the set of “Calendar Girl” Friday. The actor plays the District Attorney in the indie shooting in town through Sunday.
The actor spent Friday shooting at Steven Singer Jewelers (8th & Walnut) and also appeared at the Monster Mania Horror Convention over the weekend at the Cherry Hill Crowne Plaza.
“Calendar Girl” stars Jensen Bucher as a diner waitress who is trying to avoid becoming the next target of a serial killer who poses his victims as pin-up girls and shoots them for a calendar.
On Friday afternoon Bernsen stopped by Chickie's & Pete's (15th & Packer) where 610 WIP's Glen Macnow and Anthony Gargano were broadcasting live. Bernsen told us earlier he looks forward to “shutting Glen up” referring to his challenge to Macnow to see who could more accurately throw a baseball from the Citizens Bank Park warning track to second base.
“My arm is still good,” said Bernsen who played Roger Dorn in “Major League,” and a few of its sequels. It all started when “The Ultimate Book of Sports Movies,” which Macnow wrote with Comcast SportsNet’s Ray Didinger, a former Daily News sportswriter, dissed Bernsen’s performance in “Major League.”
The actor, now seen on USA’s “Psych” had hoped to get to the Sixers/Cavs game Friday, but he didn’t. His twin sons Henry and Angus, who turn 18 this week, attended high school with 19-year-old Sixers guard Jrue Holiday.
“Calendar Girl” is co-directed and co-written by Faith Brody and Derek Lindeman. 94 WYSP digital coordinator Tommy Avallone, John Guarnere and Frank Vain are among producers. Jake Matthews is executive producer.
Many of the producers and crew recently worked together on “Booted,” a romantic comedy including producer Tiffany Caprice, who was a producer’s assistant on “The Best and the Brightest” starring Neil Patrick Harris and Amy Sedaris and on “Swooped,” a bromance being shopped to festivals. Producer Ryan Christopher also worked on “Booted.” Assistant Director Roy Koriakin is seeking distribution for “Living Will,” which he wrote and produced, starring Ryan Dunn of MTV’s “Jackass” and “Viva La Bam.”
