"It's Always Sunny..." makes a bid for the Soul

Although "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" won't be shooting at the Center City office of the Philadelphia Soul, the FX comedy series will soon re-create the team's office on its set in Culver City, Calif. As part of the episode "Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life," some of which was shot here last week, Mac, played by South Philly-raised Rob McElhenney, and Frank, played by Danny DeVito, try to purchase the arena football team from Jon Bon Jovi.

Although "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" won't be shooting at the Center City office of the Philadelphia Soul, the FX comedy series will soon re-create the team's office on its set in Culver City, Calif. As part of the episode "Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life," some of which was shot here last week, Mac, played by South Philly-raised Rob McElhenney, and Frank, played by Danny DeVito, try to purchase the arena football team from Jon Bon Jovi.

The show is hoping for a cameo from Bon Jovi in the episode, but a team spokesman yesterday said he wasn't sure whether JBJ would appear. He did say that the Arena Football League granted use of the team logo in the show and that the team sent some merchandise to the series. The Soul, meanwhile, are 11-3 and tied for first with the Dallas Desperadoes. The fourth season of "Sunny" premieres on FX in September.

State Sens. John Rafferty and Mike Stack were on hand for shooting on Friday and chatted with the cast and director Fred Savage. The senators were quickly roped into the action, taping a segment on camera playing senators trying to shut down the production, taking turns discussing how "filthy and offensive" the risque comedy is. In real life, both are supporters of the show, as well as the PA Film Tax Credit, which helps bring movies and television shows to Philadelphia.
