Many thanks to Bloggery Readers Kimberly and A.J.

Kim left the following comment yesterday:

They are filming in Roxbury right next to my house. They won't (the police) even let me walk down the street. That stinks...

And A.J. has been emailing me the past couple of days to let me know that first off, the call sign for The Company Men is "GTX" and second of all, the signs were spotted around Mass Ave near the hospital.

I actually spent the afternoon walking to Mass Ave in the south end but I guess I didn't walk south enough to see any of the GTX signs. I was hoping to snap a photo for ya'll but I eventually got bored and turned back.

And as luck should have it, I just stumbled upon a Herald article talking about this very topic.

Yesterday, Affleck and co-star Kevin Costner were on location in Roxbury shooting scenes for the upcoming “The Company Men.” The flick, by “ER” producer John Wells, is about corporate downsizing. Kind of like in the newspaper business . . . .

Affleck plays a corporate hotshot who loses his six-figure salary, his penthouse and his Porsche after he’s laid off. Costner is his brother-in-law, a drywall installer who takes pity on the disenfranchised yuppie and gives him a construction job.


Yesterday, the cast and crew were shooting a scene at two scaffolding-bedecked triple-deckers. Apparently, these are the post-downsizing construction scenes.


BTW, Tommy Lee Jones is also in the cast, but he hasn’t been spotted yet. The Oscar winner plays a senior partner of Affleck’s firm who is horrified by his greedy partners. Apparently, he’s not heard of AIG - or The New York Times

    They're filming in an office building in Natick, across from the mall, during this week! Been trying to get pics, so far Ben Affleck has been spotted but no one else.
