Wantagh turns into movie set for action flick

Wantagh residents had many chances to catch a glimpse of Hollywood Monday as parts of the town were shut down to film a movie starring Jennifer Aniston.

Exits 1 and 2 of the Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway are closed as crews shoot the upcoming film ?The Bounty.? Early Monday, what appeared to be a chase scene was filmed on the highway. Wantagh High School is serving as the command center for the shoot.

Teenage fan Brian Sheridan even managed to get a photo of Aniston leaving in a black SUV. ?She got into the car and rolled down the window and waved at us,? Sheridan says.
