Pitch Man

At a meeting in L.A., the screenwriter Jay Lavender wanted to pitch Vince Vaughn on a new project, but the actor had another idea. The result: The Break-Up, Lavender’s first movie, made in Chicago.

Solo Acts

We think they’re stars in their own right: meet Chicago’s cast of singles 2007, envisioned as characters from iconic films. But there’s more to these scene-stealers than pretty faces. From a top chef to an academic star to a police officer, find out who rocks out on air guitar to Rage Against the Machine, whose childhood nickname was GQ, and who has an artichoke in her pocket (nope, it’s not a pickup line).
