CinCin Ristorante was the place to be for celebrity sightings last Sunday night. One table in particular seated both the cast and exec producers of Sci Fi Channel’s Tin Man miniseries, currently filming here in town. Alan Cumming and Neal McDonough enjoyed multiple courses and some highly sought-after wines. At an adjacent table sat Josh Randall and Annie Potts (both recently guest-starred in Men in Trees) along with a friend.






And speaking of Men In Trees (for some idiosyncratic reason I want to call it Men Swinging From Trees) co-stars John Amos and Emily Bergl dined at Morton’s The Steakhouse last Wednesday night, whetting their appetites with oysters and scallops before feasting on Morton’s signature 48 oz. porterhouse. Call it a celebratory meal, as the production held its wrap party last Saturday night at the Alibi Room, with filming finally coming to an end just yesterday.


Model-come-actress Jaime King
(Pearl Harbor, Sin City) is in town and treated herself to a mobile session of Absolute Spa last week at her hotel room. King — who began her career modeling for such magazines as Vogue, Allure and Glamour — is in town to shoot They Wait, a thriller being produced by Vancouver’s Brightlight Pictures about a couple whose son begins to see ghosts and suffer possession by one of the living dead.

Meanwhile, the crew of The Bionic Woman TV pilot was filming downtown yesterday. The circus was parked in the Easypark lot at Georgia and Cambie, and allegedly will be there for a while today too. The NBC/Universal pilot is a re-imagining of the popular 1970s TV series about a female athlete who is given bionic strength. Early reports from reliable insiders indicate that the pilot was to have a virtually unprecedented budget of $9 million, though this has not been confirmed.
