Nicolas Cage and Denise Gray

A little celebrity action has a smaller South Okanagan town buzzing.

A Facebook post on Sunday that shows Nicolas Cage standing with Buy-Low Foods Osoyoos employee Denise Gray is gaining steam online.

The store is being very hush-hush on the reason for Cage’s visit, why he is visiting the Okanagan and what he bought, but the photo is making the rounds.

Some on Facebook have surmised he is town filming a new sci-fi thriller called The Humanity Bureau.

Many on Facebook seemed unimpressed with Cage’s lack of enthusiasm in the photo, but pleased he was visiting the Okanagan and supporting a local grocer.

Sannah Fletcher wrote, “Only in Osoyoos you can pass a Lamborghini or a famous face on any given day, love Osoyoos.”

The original post by Mary Fry itself has received hundreds of likes, shares and comments.
