Hey, restaurateurs and shopkeepers in Cincinnati: Here’s one way to meet your Hollywood favorites if they happen to be in town.

On Wednesday, a Vancouver-area sandwich shop bribed an appearance out of actor Liam Neeson with the promise of free food on Instagram.

Plot twist: It worked (if Big Star Sandwich Co.’s Instagram feed is to be believed)!

Perhaps it's something to try if you happen to love Robert Redford, Sissy Spacek, Casey Affleck or and Danny Glover. They were spotted in Bethel and Hamilton last month as they film "The Old Man and the Gun."
