OU Moment


It’s Hollywood stars at Meadow Brook Hall these days. The Michigan tax initiative has brought a flurry of big and small film projects to the state and the beauty and grand scale of this Tudor Revival historic house museum has not escaped the notice of talent scouts. The hall was the chosen setting for the upcoming movie, Youth in Revolt, and the ABC TV pilot, The Prince of the Motor City. Above, Prince director Jack Bender (Lost, The Sopranos) directs Warren Christie (October Road) in a scene for the pilot, which was shot at the hall in July. Other well known members of the cast included Andie McDowell (Groundhog Day), Sharon Lawrence (NYPD Blue), Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly) and Aiden Quinn (Legends of the Fall). The pilot is a modern-day Hamlet story set entirely in Detroit, Mich. Release dates for Prince and Youth in Revolt have not been set.
