Paging Dr. Gupta! Matt Damon, Jude Law and Laurence Fishburne would like to share some screen time with you!
CNN’s esteemed Dr. Sanjay Gupta has signed on for a cameo role in “Contagion,” the bio thriller that also stars Kate Winslet and Gwyneth Paltrow. Gupta is filming his scene today.
“Contagion,” which snarled traffic in the CDC/Emory area yesterday, continues filming today. We hear the project will be shooting in East Atlanta, and also plans to film some at a residence at the downtown W hotel.
The movie is about a team of doctors that is scrambling to find a cure for a deadly epidemic, so shots of the CDC and the cameo with Dr. Gupta will surely lend some cred. Next week, he is scheduled to return to Haiti to report on the earthquake-ravaged region, a year later.
