“Person of Interest” Chases Down Stanton [Video]

Posted on: March 23rd, 2011 at 6:28 am by

On an errand yesterday afternoon, we accidentally walked directly into the set of CBS cop drama Person of Interest on Stanton Street.  A modest filming crew was working at the corner of Attorney, busy trying to capture a chase scene down the block.  Most of the other “pedestrians” were actually extras, so we got yelled at a bunch.  Eff them!

Anyway, we shot the following video of the scene, which portrays star Jim Caviezel running after a teen from the nearby Nathan Straus Playground.

Person of Interest is the brainchild of J.J. Abrams (Lost), and focuses on an ex-CIA agent, presumed dead, who teams up with a reclusive billionaire to prevent crime in New York City.
