    I Was at Aria yesterday afternoon and they were filming in the lobby and outside to the left of the entrance. Saw Morgan Freeman and Michael Douglas,
    Robert Dinero had been there earlier filming. We left Cosmo last night around 7:45 and they had closed off the strip and were filming sky divers and were setting up a chase scene at the entrance to Paris.

    WOW! i would have flipped out if i had seen those two. The only celebrity i've seen in my 3 trips was Brad Garrett, he was at the MGM playing 5-10 no limit. My girlfriend and i are staying at the Aria next March hopefully i can add to that total.

    I'm assuming that both Last Vegas and Hangover III are being filmed right now. Pretty good chance of seeing some stars.

    When I was there last week they were filming in front of the Mirage volcano. They had those privacy slides up so I didn't see any movie stars though.

    We were walking through MGM years back and there was a big roped off area. We asked someone what was going on and sure enough they were filming OCEANS 11. In the not too far off distance you could see Clooney & Pitt. Was pretty cool. When we were leaving, instead of walking all the way through the casino, we stepped out some side door and into a maze of semi trailers and huge motor homes.

    I was there at Mirage also. We tried to peak but didn't see anyone we recognized. They had it blocked off pretty good. Someone said they were filming Hangover III.

    I was at Rio over a year ago and they were filming some horseracing/sportsbook movie with Bruce Willis. Still haven't seen any publicity for it though.

    at the Barbra concert last weekend Morgan Freeman was sitting right in front of us. all night long people kept coming over to shake his hand and take his picture. he was so gracious to them all, i really have no idea how he did it, but it was really ridiculous that people don't respect that celebrities are people too and don't want to be hounded 24/7. one lady seriously stood there talking to him for 10 minutes. he hardly said anything, she was just talking and talking and talking. i wanted to yell, hey lady, he doesn't care. they don't want to hear about you or your story about how much you love them because you first saw them in XYZ when you were 12, blah, blah, blah. they just want to enjoy their time doing whatever they're doing.

    anyway, another nameless celebrity is staying at the Mansion right now and we had dinner next to him last week. that's about the only place they can just relax and not worry about gawkers all the time. even then he still took the table in the corner and sat with his back facing the room. we only knew who it was because he walked right past us when he came in.
