Ant-Man Extra Defecates on Tenderloin Movie Set

When producers of the superhero-flick Ant-Man cast "people to portray blue-collar appearing, Tenderloin residents or Homeless types" for their shoot in San Francisco's grittiest neighborhood, we didn't think they intended to hire actual homeless people (then again homeless people probably portray homeless people best).

TMZ is reporting the crew picked up 100 homeless people to use as extras for the upcoming film, being shot under the working name Bigfoot and starring Paul Rudd, about a relatively unknown Marvel Comics hero. That sounds nice until you get to the part where producers had to deal with the aforementioned "actors," one of who reportedly dropped deuce on the set and peed on the Ant-mobile as if it was part of the job description.

 Here's the video:

Now even more true than before, SF Weekly warned the public back in August about the dangers of the fecal matter on the Tenderloin set in a prediction that became premonition: "Woe to anyone wandering, barefoot here, regardless of foot size," SF Weekly Staff Writer Joe Eskenazi wrote.

 TMZ says the producers fired the guy, but still gave the guy $175 for all his good work, public defecation not included.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
