Star gazers, take note: former “Charmed” actress Alyssa Milano and “Samantha Who?” star Christina Applegate sightings are about to increase locally.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the two actresses have just been added to the burgeoning cast of “Hall Pass,” the new comedy being shot in Atlanta by “There’s Something About Mary” directors the Farrelly Brothers.

According to the left coast trade publication, comic Larry Campbell is also joining “Marley & Me” actor Owen Wilson and his co-star Amanda Bynes for the local shoot.

The latest plot synopsis posted online about the project?

The flick chronicles the adventures of two husbands after they’re given the greenlight to explore “guilt-free romantic liaisons” outside their marriages for a period of one week.

The local media, meanwhile, continues to chronicle the film’s shoot here.

On Friday night, for example, Emory Wheel reporter Mark Rozeman staked out Fraternity Row where Wilson and Bynes were sitting in a car outside the Kappa Alpha Order house prepping to shoot a scene.

Praised Peter Farrelly to the Wheel about Georgia’s new film-friendly tax incentive program: “We’ve had zero problems. [The people have] been great. I always knew [Atlanta] was a great place.”

Of the film’s basic comedic premise, Farrelly told the Wheel: “I believe in marriage whole-heartedly. But even if God came to you and says you have the most perfect woman on Earth, you’d still want to screw the second best.”

The student-run newspaper’s behind-the-scenes exclusive scoop is now posted online.

The “Hall Pass” shoot will continue throughout the spring.
