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.
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.
