“The Closer” star KYRA SEDGWICK was bummed-out when she spent a day playing TV journo because she was hoping to witness a murder.
She plays a TV journo in new flick “Man on a Ledge” and decided to do some research and tag along with two pros from cable newser NY1 famed for showing events in a super-speed “New York minute”.
“I called them up and I said, ‘I’m playing a reporter in this movie,’ and they said, ‘Oh definitely come down, it would be great to have you, Kyra said.
“But get here really early in the morning because breaking news stories happens early in the morning, we get in the car and we go.’ So all night I couldn’t sleep I was so excited. It was like Christmas…
“I show up in the morning at 4.30 and I meet the anchorwoman, her name is Vivian Lee… and her camera woman is a woman who is also the driver. So they’re like, ‘We got the breaking news we got to go, we got to go right now.’ So we’re driving and they don’t really know where they’re going, they’re like looking on their blackberries and everything, because it’s very do-it-yourself.
“We pull up to this school in Brooklyn and she parks the car and slaps on her NY1 (press badge) and runs out of the car and grabs the camera and I’m thinking, ‘Ok this is good because something really bad has happened,’” Kyra recalled.
“Vivian turns on her mic and she says, ‘Brooklyn is in an uproar today about the mayor’s decision about alternate side of the street parking.’
“I was a little disappointed it wasn’t a murder.”
