DRL Is Famous!

DRL is usually filled with little more than engineers with their huge backpacks and pocket calculators and that giant periodic table. But, as we reported Friday, today it is doubling as a set for the untitled James L. Brooks movie (can we just give it a title already?) starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson.

The building is almost entirely blocked off, and surrounded by security guards, yellow police tape and at least five studio trucks. There is just one door open for the extras (our very own Penn physics majors!) to use, but if you happen to be in the area, you could always try to sneak onto the set... who knows, you might just see Paul checking his phone in an empty classroom or Reese wandering the linoleum halls! Check out what we found with our intrepid photog Melanie Lei.
