The Chateau Marmont isn’t just a famous hotel — it’s a repository of Tinseltown legend.
Witness: John Belushi died there. F. Scott Fitzgerald had a heart attack at its pool. Jim Morrison took a nasty fall while trying to swing onto the roof. Greta Garbo hid from the world. And Jean Harlow honeymooned.
Now, one of the hotel’s neighbours — “The Office” star John Krasinski — thinks the Chateau is ready for its closeup.
And Deadline is reporting that Krasinski has “The Social Network” scribe Aaron Sorkin onboard to write a miniseries about it.
The two are planning to cast an enormous ensemble of actors — “to make it an homage to Hollywood,” Krasinksi said.
Because the Chateau — which is currently owned by hotelier Andre Balazs, by the way — is truly Hollywood itself.
Seclusion has long been the name of the game at the hotel, as evidenced by the the pool's shrouds of greenery.
