L.A. Cameo: 'Glee' Returns to the Eagle Rock Plaza
The Eagle Rock Plaza had already been featured prominently on Fox's "Glee," in a scene last year involving a flash mob imagined by Artie (the kid in the wheelchair).
For this week's episode, "Glee" once again featured a flash mob -- and once again headed to the Eagle Rock Plaza to perform it. As the cast (led by Kurt, played by Chris Colfer) and many others danced to Duck Sauce's "Barbra Streisand," you could easily see plenty of Eagle Rock Plaza stores, including Target, Seafood City, Chowking and Jollibee.
(I'm pretty sure there's no outposts of Jollibee and Chowking, two Filipino fast food chains, in Ohio, where "Glee" is set. Last May, when Jollibee was also spotted on "Glee," it caused such a stir that "Jollibee" became a trending topic on Twitter.)
According to the Eagle Rock Plaza website, the mall is regularly used for film shoots, and has been seen in episodes of "Criminal Minds," "The Closer" and "Without a Trace," as well as countless music videos and commercials.
