'Always Sunny' cast to party with regular folk

The cast and crew of the Fx comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia have been working in town this week, shooting exteriors on their annual pilgrimage to the hometown of creator/star Rob McElhenney.

Thursday (June 24) had them on the 700 block of Sansom Street, aka Jewelers Row, as they shot a scene in which the Sunny-ers are stuck in traffic.

Danny DeVito grabs 40 winks during a break on Thursday on Jewelers Row.

Since last year, McElhenney and his costar/wife, Kaitlin Olson, have become parents (son Axel was born Sept. 1).

Tonight (Saturday, June 25), Mom, Dad, and Baby, along with cast members Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, and Danny DeVito, are due at Mac's Tavern, the bar at 226 Market St. in which McElhenney and Olson are investors with his buddies from St. Joseph's Prep.

You'll notice that there's more to McElhenney this year. He proudly says he has packed on 50 pounds and grew a scruffy beard for the show.

The diet starts after the shooting wraps next week, he says.
