Jamie Foxx at Holmesburg Prison

By Shannon McDonald

Jamie Foxx has been in town recently filming his latest movie, Law Abiding Citizen. He spent all this week at Holmesburg Prison, where the crew will be filming through Wednesday.

No word on whether they’re looking for extras, but hanging outside Holmesburg Prison waiting for a peek of Jamie Foxx would make for an interesting weekend.
