San Francisco native and noted actor ~Sam Rockwell~ enjoyed coffee at Royal Ground Coffee on Polk Street Friday morning with writing/acting colleagues Michael Godere and Ivan Martin. The group was in town for the San Francisco International Film Festival, and was very friendly. Our spotter says Mr. Rockwell was lookin’ fine in a red beanie and reading the New York Times.
~Bono~ was spotted in Palo Alto at Evvia yesterday. He reportedly had lunch with Jimmy Iovine, the owner of Interscope Records (whose partnership with Dr. Dre, Beats Headphones, has created a lot of news this week over rumors about a $3.2 billion sale to Apple—yikes). Our spy reports that Bono enjoyed tasting two wines that a guest shared (including the Marziano Abbona Terlo Ravera Barolo 2009), and posed for pics when leaving.
Local television host Vicki Liviakis posted a photo on Facebook of herself with comedy writer ~Bruce Vilanch~ at Kokkari. He’s most well known for being the head writer for the Academy Awards, as well as his appearances on Hollywood Squares. He also writes for the Emmy, Tony, and Grammy award shows (a regular writing EGOT!), and is known for his self-proclaimed “fried blonde” hair and punny T-shirts.
