CELEB-U-WATCH: So that was the guy from Glee I saw on the treadmill at the gym! Recently I saw what I thought was Jess St. James, aka Jonathan Groff, at 24-Hour Fitness in the Pearl District. I dismissed it, thinking why would he be working out in Portland. Well, it looks like it is for a film that is currently shooting in and around our area.

BTW, Groff isn't the only openly gay actor in the indie, so is True Blood's Denis O'Hare.

Here's a bit more on the production according to which posted this on Saturday: "Pretty Little Liars regular Troian Bellisario has been cast in C.O.G., an independent film directed and written by Kyle Patrick Alvarez. It’s the first film adaptation of writing by the humorist David Sedaris. In this particular essay, Sedaris travels to work in the apple orchards of Oregon and is confronted by migrant workers and God-fearing churchgoers. Jonathan Groff, Corey Stoll, Casey Wilson and Dean Stockwell also star. Cookie Carosella and Stephen Nemeth are producing the project currently filming in Portland, Oregon. This is Alvarez’s second film after his debut Easier With Practice which won a Spirit Award. Cookie Carosella is producing with Rhino Film’s Stephen Nemeth..."
