That's interesting that you can see the sign opposing land development in the campaign office as I was reading that that's why Wachs got elected to city council in the first place. There's quite an interesting article about it and the dodgy campaigns here:

Wonder if the land development will feature in the plot at all, la Chinatown.

the personality of Wachs is very anticipatory

Quote
He had a boisterous personality. When he was newly elected to the Los Angeles City Council, he distributed a mock ordinance that would supposedly have taxed all male residents on the size of their genitals. Occasionally he would exclaim "This is fun!" in the middle of a committee meeting. His colleagues described him as "a human guy, a lot of heart" and used adjectives that ranged from "very bright and intellectual" to "emotional" to "slightly hysterical."

This all sounds great material, the handling of his sexuality will also be a challenging and delicate issue (in case they really want to delve into that).

i dont think it will be challenging or delicate i think it will be interesting

Quote
Wachs and Councilwoman Peggy Stevenson sponsored what Wachs called "the strongest gay rights ordinance in the U.S.," prohibiting job and housing discrimination based on sexual preference. His measure outlawing employment discrimination against victims of AIDS was passed unanimously by the City Council, despite the fact that his mail on the subject was running heavily against it.

hes going to be dope

When he was seated, he became the City Council's youngest member at age thirty-three.

Can't wait to see Benny play him given how boisterous the Safdies are in real life.

Someone mentioned on twitter they saw Cooper filming today. I figured Cooper would be off to Nightmare Alley by now.

Were they definitely referring to Bradley Cooper or could they have meant Cooper Hoffman?

Supposedly Nightmare Alley re-entered production on 16th September. Who knows what they are shooting or maybe the crew are prepping?
Also Rooney Mara is pregnant so that might alter the shoot once again and give Cooper more time with PTA.

Don't think he's there. They just know he's in it and were assuming.

He was having dinner with Guillermo del Toro in Toronto the other day apparently, so it would be weird if he was there.
