The Ben Affleck-directed political thriller Argo is filming in the D.C. area, and the Overlee Community Association and Pool is one of the areas where production vehicles have been congregating.

Period-specific cars and taxis can be seen parked in the club’s parking lot off of Lee Highway. A sign on a light poll reads: “Stage 16.”

The production has been casting for extras in Virginia. This casting call says the film will be shooting on Nov. 18, 19 and 20.

    Maybe Ben can float the pool some money to rehab their clubhouse instead of tearing it down.

      Why does a pool need helping with floating something?

        Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzing. Their dues are high enough, what have they been doing with all that money they let the clubhouse fall into such disrepair?

    “…where production vehicles has been congregating.” Apparently this is nowhere near places grammar congregates.

      I see we aren’t too far from where pedants congregate.

    It takes a tough man to mock an illiterate blogger.

      “Affleck, you the *bomb* in Phantoms yo! “

      Sigh. Don’t they teach spelling in school anymore?

      The correct spelling is “BUM.”
