While Pittsburgh poses as New York City for the filming of “Fathers and Daughters,” locals have their own cameras at the ready to capture the stars in action.

Aaron Paul, Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long, who have been spotted filming and relaxing around town on the Pitt campus and on the South Side, are popping up in pictures Pittsburghers are sharing over social media.

From selfies to group shots, smartphones are documenting the cast all over town. Pitt Alumni Association tweeted out a shot of Alumni Hall temporarily transformed into Copen Academy. Pitt student Mary Griseto snapped a pic with Seyfried, and tweeted, “Thanks for taking the time to see us all!” Even the stars themselves have been sharing their love for the 'Burgh online, posting group shots and shout-outs to the city and its residents.

Russell Crowe, a Pittsburgh fan who spent time here filming “The Next Three Days” a few years ago, also stars in “Fathers and Daughters,” but hasn't made it back to the ‘Burgh just yet. He's been in full promotion mode for his film “Noah,” which opened this weekend.

“Fathers and Daughters,” directed by Gabriele Muccino, tells the story of a woman (Seyfried) struggling with relationship issues who reflects on growing up with her famous novelist father (Crowe). It is set to open in 2015, according to IMDB. See more pictures at TribLive.com.
