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

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
