Movie Fact #888 – November 16th, 2015:

Director Barry Levinson had the main actors of his 1982 American comedy-drama “Diner”, arrive in Baltimore a week before filming began to get to know each other and build rapport.

Predictably, the young male actors went out on the town to clubs and tried to pick up women, sometimes even using bogus stories about what they were doing in Baltimore. Co-star Tim Daly, who played the character William “Billy” Howard, says he came up with the most popular one, that they were engineers working on a rotating rooftop restaurant.

Well I mean…acting is about convincing people you’re something else. Sounds like this was kind of good practice.
