Man of Steel: Jor-El Goes to the Library

According to an article appearing in the Kane County Chronicle, there was quite a bit of shock when Jor-El of Krypton -- actually actor Russell Crowe -- spent some time at the Batavia Library in Kane.

Library cafe worker Whitney Garwood offered, "It was kind of a shock. I didn't wake up thinking I would see Russell Crowe walk into my work."

States the story, "Crowe has been in the area for the filming of the new Superman movie, Man of Steel. Crowe stars as Superman’s biological father Jor-El in the movie. Filming has been going on in several communities, including Sugar Grove, Aurora and Plano. Garwood said she was working in the back of the cafe when a co-worker called her up front saying she had a sandwich order for Crowe. 'He asked if we had gluten-free, which we didn’t,' Garwood said. 'We thanked him for his business. He was a nice guy. He left a tip in the tip jar.'

"Michele Martzel, the promotional services coordinator at the library, and Batavia Library Director George Scheetz said they walked out on the patio to talk to Crowe. 'Someone in the library said they thought they saw Russell Crowe,' Martzel said. 'Neither of us wanted to bother him, but if we didn’t find out it was true, we’d be kicking ourselves.'"
