Leo and his co-star, Matt Damon, both paid a visit to the 'townie set yesterday, but the Cambridge homey spent a good part of the afternoon at Sonsie on Newbury Street being interviewed by a female reporter.
Our table spies surmised that Matt must be trying to drop a few for the cameras since he munched on just a red-leaf salad - hold the goat cheese - and three cappuccinos!
Whether shot in downtown Boston, the former Quincy shipyard, Flagship Wharf, or Castle Island, every frame of film from ''The Departed" is being scanned by editor Thelma Schoonmaker. The two-time Oscar winner, who's worked with director Martin Scorsese for 25 years, is editing film daily at Emerson College, school spokesman David Rosen confirmed yesterday. And since June 13, Scorsese and members of the cast and crew have gathered nightly at Emerson to review their efforts. ''They were looking for suitable facilities to edit the dailies and view them," Rosen said. ''We have a very small summer school, so we can accommodate their needs." Students hanging around can ''assist as needed," said Rosen.
