Vince Vaughn fans may get a glimpse of the comedian at the Choo Choo Restaurant in downtown Des Plaines, where the movie star is expected to film a television show pilot Wednesday.
The restaurant, at the corner of Lee and Jefferson streets, will be closed the entire day for the filming. Vaughn, of "Wedding Crashers" fame, recently starred in "Couples Retreat" partially shot in Buffalo Grove, where Vaughn attended high school.
Vaughn played football and wrestled while growing up in Buffalo Grove. He later graduated from Lake Forest High School. The city will be giving up its employee parking lot for the day to accommodate equipment that will be used for taping, a city employee said. The pilot is about two college graduates who move from the suburbs to the city, according to an application filed with the city for the filming.
Vaughn is listed as the director of the show and Vail Romelin as producer. The production company is Funny Little Man Productions LLC.
The company will be hiring two off-duty Des Plaines police officers for security at the filming.
