We all know that actors are paid to become new people with every movie, but did you know that sometimes a city has to slap on some makeup and smile for the camera as well? Not every film is shot on location, and some cities are just better actors than others! Here’s a look at some of Miami’s greatest movie performances.
Iron Man 3
The Marvel Comics mega-blockbuster was set in Los Angeles, but much of the filming was done in Miami, Dania Beach and the Greater Fort Lauderdale area.
Rock of Ages
While some were still scratching their heads over why Tom Cruise starred in this celeb-studded rock ‘n’ roll musical, others were impressed at just how much downtown Miami mimicked the California’s legendary Sunset Strip.
Stuck on You
This under-appreciated comedy from the Farrelly Brothers starred Greg Kinnear and Matt Damon as conjoined twins, and of course the lovely city of Miami as Hollywood, CA.
