Reese Witherspoon in Sunnyside, shooting skit for SNL

 

May 8, 2015 By Michael Florio

Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon was in Sunnyside today shooting a skit for this Saturday’s “Saturday Night Live.”

Witherspoon is hosting the show for the first time in 14 years as she aims to promote her new movie, Hot Pursuit.

The famous actress was shooting a comedy skit at the former Dime Savings Bank, located on the corner of 43rd Street and Queens Blvd.

There were several production teams and crew on site. Furthermore, there was strong-security.

The security was not just for Witherspoon. “We don’t want you taking pictures it could spoil the joke. You just got to wait ‘til Saturday.”

Most likely it was one of the several production team members, one of the crew, or one of the security personnel, all of whom were mentioned in very close proximity to the quote you’re concerned about. Way to latch on to something really important.

Select all dogs! I like that one better than the ice cream and the pasta. At least I can get that right.
