'Too Big to Park' in Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

It's a BIG film with a BIG cast and it's gonna cause BIG parking problems in Brooklyn Heights around Borough Hall from today through Sunday.

Trucks and production equipment for HBO's "Too Big to Fail" will be taking over Court and Remsen Streets near Borough Hall today and Friday; Court, Montague and Joralemon Streets near Borough Hall Saturday; and Joralemon Street from Adams to Court on Sunday.

Expect lots of stars: William Hurt, James Woods, Billy Crudup (playing Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithne), Paul Giamatti (playing Fed chairman Ben Bernanke), Cynthia Nixon, Tony Shalhoub, and many more. (Ed Asner's playing Warren Buffet!) Curtis Hanson is directing.

The film is an adaptation of New York Times columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin’s “Too Big To Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System – and Themselves.”

Want to be in the film? TBTF is looking for extras. They are seeking: "men and women business types with upscale navy, gray or brown conservative business suits; men, early 20s to late 30s, who can play squash."

More than the sign says. The No Parking signs on Court Street go north past Montague to Pierrepont, if not further.

Newsjunkie -- that's actually a good idea. It would make room for all the towed cars as well.
