Spotted in Melbourne:

1. Actor/director Danny de Vito scouting for locations around Melbourne University.

2. Simon Mann, deputy editor of The Age, and Malcolm Schmidtke, formerly an Age editor and now Herald Sun business editor, at a little table down the back of Campari, in Hardware Street. Mann was recently passed over for The Age editor’s job and Spencer Street insiders say he’s frustrated by his treatment at Fairfax.
