Actor Matthew Fox, out promoting the screen adaptation of “Alex Cross,” filmed in Michigan, and talked with Examiner reporter Lori Melton, and she cut to the heart of the matter: Coneys.
For the role, Fox had to limit his daily diet to 1,200 to 1,500 calories. The hardest part of that? The small of coney dogs grilling. He told Melton, “I would walk by these places for like, the last two weeks of shooting and look through the door and sort of longingly watch them make these beautiful chili dogs and just the smell of it. So that’s what I was prepping for. On my last day I went there and scarfed like three of them.”
