Filming 'Escape at Dannemora'

If you are wondering how some of Hollywood's stars would be made to look like the characters involved with the 2017 prison escape in Dannemora, Entertainment Weekly has some pictures from some of the local filming.

The locals who were involved in the filming of "Escape at Dannemora" were barred from taking any pictures, but EW's website has some pix of Benicio Del Toro dirtied up as escapee Richard Matt and director/producer Ben Stiller taking part in a scene.

And boy, did they have to do a job on the stunning Patricia Arquette to make her look like haggard prison employee Joyce Mitchell.

Stiller also has some interesting observations in the article about life in upstate New York.

The eight-part show is set to air on Showtime in 2018.
