  1. Here’s a highlight you missed: Prominent Portland citizens had cameos in the movie. There’s an intense scene where the mayor of Portland is chewing out his department heads. The camera slowly pans across each department head (played by the cameos). When the camera reaches the head of the fire department, the PDX audience bursts out laughing. That role was played by Tom Peterson, a local retailer known for his obnoxious, corny, TV commercials. His serious, dignified role was 180 degrees opposite from his personality in real life. I’m sure if you watched this movie in any other city, you would know who was from Portland, because they would be the only ones in the theater laughing their asses off in this otherwise intense scene.

    • Darin, Thank you for calling me out on that. We should have added the celebrity appearances, we just focused on locations. Tiger Warren (fonder of Macheezmo Mouse also had a cameo in the scene filmed in Hubers as did Gus Van Sant himself in the hotel scene. The Tom Peterson was a great one. I remember him and his commercials growing growing up. Any other locals I missed?
