Actor William H. Macy strolled through G Lounge (111 S. 17th) Saturday evening at a Greater Philadelphia Film Office reception. The actor's here for screenings of "The Deal," in the Philadelphia Film Festival. He told us he was happy to be in town promoting the film, but had to get home soon to wife Felicity Huffman, who was alone with the couple’s young daughters. Macy says he’s a fan of Huffman’s show “Desperate Housewives,” and while he's a great actor, we believe him. Though he'd better so say or he may be sleeping on the couch.
Hollywood producer JC Spink with his Penn Charter pal and entertainment lawyer Justin Wineburgh, documentary filmmaker Tigre Hill (pictured here with Macy) and attorneys Scott Sigman and Christopher Cabott were also among guests at the reception. Haaz Sleiman, one of the stars of "The Visitor," was sorry he didn't get to see much of Philly on his first visit, but he was off to another city Sunday to promote the film, written and directed by Tom McCarthy who made "The Station Agent," and also played lying reporter Scott Templeton on the last season of "The Wire."
