'Virgin' territory: Shooting for Rob Schneider's new movie lights up Greektown

Adam Graham / The Detroit News / November 3, 2008

Rob Schneider is in a grungy back alley in Greektown dressed like a pimped-out Jonas Brother, with loud red pants, a suit coat rolled up to his elbows and a ridiculous faux-hawk atop his head. He's repeatedly beating a subordinate over the head with a stack of T-shirts outside an RV emblazoned with the words "Chicks Go Crazy."

Has Mr. Schneider fallen on hard times? Not quite. Turns out he's filming a scene for his latest movie, a bawdy romp tentatively titled "American Virgin" that is the latest film production to take advantage of Michigan's generous tax initiative.
