ATLANTA — The town of Rockmart, Georgia got a star-studded surprise when they spotted celebs Steve Carell and Jon Stewart. The duo is in Atlanta filming a political satire film, “Irresistible,” starring Carell and directed by Stewart.

The A-Scene’s Francesca Amiker did some prowling on Twitter and saw the two celebs taking photos with fans on set!

Don’t miss Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton in the new movie, “The Sun is Also A Star” out in theaters today!

The movie centers around Yara’s character Natasha who believes everything happens with science and facts and can be explained.

She meets a boy named Daniel (Melton) who thinks fate brought them together and says he can make her fall in love with him. She gives him just one day, but that really because she and her Jamaican family can no longer stay in America.

“It’s very honest and authentic, and I believe in love as always,” Melton tells The A-Scene.

Shahidi tells us she was able to connect with the film because of her multiracial background.

“Coming from a multiracial family, I’ve realized that I’ve always had a globalist perspective of knowing how the people we are talking about were being affected. Not everyone is able to have that opportunity. “Shahidi said.
