AIR DATE: January 13, 2012

Some of Hollywood's biggest stars are on the strip this week.  But, they're not here to hit the party scene and gamble, that may come later.  No, they're here filming a new movie called "Burt Wonderstone."  It stars Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, James Gandolfini, Steve Buscemi and Olivia Wilde.  It's a comedy about dueling-magicians.  We talk with film critic Carol Cling from the Review Journal about this latest project, past movie projects filmed on the Strip and why Hollywood still loves Vegas.

GUEST
Carol Cling, movie critic, LVRJ
