Lasell Hosts Patriots Day Movie Crew for Filming

May 19, 2016

Hollywood came to Lasell earlier this week as the crew from the Patriots Day movie took over Rosen Auditorium for one day of filming. The scene included Oscar-winning actor JK Simmons who plays Watertown Police Department Sgt. Jeffrey Pugliese.

Pugliese played a major role in the Watertown shootout several days after the bombing.

The movie recounts the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the aftermath, which includes the city-wide manhunt to find the terrorists behind it. It also stars local movie star favorite Mark Wahlberg. Wahlberg was not on campus for the scene.
