Though Grassroots features non-Seattle actors Jason Biggs, Cedric the Entertainer, Joel David Moore, Cobie Smulders, Tom Arnold and Emily Bergl, the film is truly a Seattle piece. With most of the crew, from Director of Photography down, being Seattle-based, the story about Grant Cogswell (former Stranger writer who ran for City Council) and shooting taking place in Capitol Hill, Seattle Center, King County Courthouse and Queen Anne, Grassroots truly embraces Seattle. The soundtrack even features contemporary local bands like Fences and Mt. St. Helen’s Vietnam Band. Says director Stephen Gyllenhaal, “Toward the end, there’s a whole chorus shout to Seattle. … It’s a love story to Seattle.” To read the full article, follow the link.
