/// Google Welcomes Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson’s "The Internship" on Campus
You wouldn’t know that relations between Google and Hollywood are testy by the week they’ve had together. Google has taken in movie stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn with open arms, lending its campus as the set for their upcoming film “The Internship.” I’d previously written about the project coming to the San Francisco Bay Area this week , but hadn’t realized the extent to which Google was cooperating. It wasn’t feasible to let the 20th Century Fox-produced film take over its entire campus for months, but Google’s marketing team consulted on the creation of “Google office” sets at Georgia Tech, and opened up its actual Mountain View, Calif., headquarters this week to shoot some external scenes. Not only that, but Eric Schmidt interviewed Vince Vaughn for an employee talk (the video is not online yet, that I can see ), and many Google employees (including Android guru Hugo Barra, I’ve been told) were extras on the film. Plus, Google co-founder Sergey Brin hosted part of the crew for dinner at his own home, and his Google[x] projects Google Glass and driverless cars are set to be featured in the movie.
