Some love it, some hate it but no matter what, the Austin entertainment and pop culture scene is strong. And with so many celebrities living here or hailing from the ATX, there’s never a shortage of stories.
Here are the top Austin entertainment stories of 2022!
No shock here! Our #1 post of the year is our list of celebrities who call Austin home. Many you know. But others may surprise you.
This post was actually published in Fall of 2021, though two of the projects were released in 2022. And two are still to come (Love and Death and Hypnotic)!
These posts always do well. Guess that’s why we always do them! Actually, this year we did more SXSW coverage than ever before.
It may have been released in 1999, but people are still watching Varsity Blues. Since it was shot in Central Texas, we went looking for all the filming locations and chronicle them in this post. Oh, and in case you aren’t aware, star James Van Der Beek now lives in the Austin area with his wife and six kids.
There’s been a long running debate about whether or not Sandra Bullock still lives in Austin. While she does own and house and a business here, we can confirm she doesn’t actually spend much time in the ATX.
Y’all can’t get enough news about what’s filming in Austin. Though The Last Thing He Told Me only filmed in the area for about a week, the city was a buzz with Jennifer Garner sightings.

Kirsten Dunst spent lot of time in the ATX this year since her hubby Jesse Plemons was shooting Love and Death. In January, she chatted with CBS Sunday Morning about her role in the film The Power of the Dog and why she likes living in Austin.
