Images taken by local photographer, Ian Fairbrother, show John Krasinski - who rose to fame as Jim Halpert in the hit US series, The Office - stood wearing a brown suit, as well as filming scenes in a sports car with Natalie Portman.

The vintage car is fully rigged out with filming equipment and is being driven by a camouflaged driver hidden where the bonnet should be. Portman and Krasinki sat in the usual driver’s and passenger’s seat. Filming is expected to continue in Liverpool until Saturday (May 18).
