If they made a map filled with all of the film characters associated with my hometown of Columbus, Ohio, it would contain an image of Nick Nolte from the obscure 1984 film Teachers (Filmed in Columbus), five seconds worth of Michael Douglas screen time from the film Traffic that was filmed outside the State Capital building, and that’s about all. If you really want to stretch it, I suppose you could include the character Columbus from the film Zombieland because he’s named for it being his hometown – although no part of the movie actually takes place there.
So, for that reason, I suppose Bernie Hou was smart to go with Manhattan instead. Check out his map of 91 films taking place in the Big Apple:
Then tell us something interesting about a movie or TV show that filmed in your town.
