Holy crap!

Apparently, Proof got made into a movie, and Gwyneth Paltrow is playing the Jackie Dehne part. Out. Standing. Must go see it.

"I think that's how Chicago got started. A bunch of people in New York said, 'Gee, I'm enjoying the crime and the poverty, but it just isn't cold enough. Let's go west.'" --Richard Jeni

I was visiting the Chicago Div School when they were shooting Proof. They used the div school as the math department, because apparently the math department at Chicago doesn't look enough like itself for Hollywood. *rolls eyes* Posted by Chris T. at 9:37am on 16 Sep 2005
My roommate in Budapest was a student at U of C when they were filming parts of the movie there. She wanted to be an extra, but allegedly they told her that she was too pretty to be a mathematician. :( On the upside, she got to meet Anthony Hopkins. Posted by Susannah at 10:16am on 16 Sep 2005
Richard Jeni is pee-in-my-pants funny. I have to reaquire "Platypus Man". Posted by Kim K. at 11:28am on 16 Sep 2005
