Filming In Town; ‘American Idol’ Surprise

According to Realtors David Gunderman and Andrew Raskopf, of East Bay Luxury Real Estate, an independent film starring Kristen Wiig and Alexander Skarsgard will be filming at one of their listings in Alameda.

“We have helped arrange a film shoot at one of our Alameda listings sometime in the coming weeks (not allowed to say when). Alameda native/filmmaker Mari Heller is filming her first major feature in town,” the two wrote on Facebook. “Exciting!”

The film, as reported by “Variety,” is the coming-of-age drama “The Diary of a Teenage Girl.”

In other celebrity news, Rachel Rolleri, 17, a student at Monte Vista High and the daughter of Alameda Police Chief Paul Rolleri, will play the acoustic guitar while singing “Stay” by Sugar Land on “American Idol.”

The Danville Patch reports that Rolleri will sing during the second part of a two-night premiere that begins Wednesday, Jan. 15, from 8-10 p.m. on FOX.
