Chevy Chase and Burt Reynolds brought their acting talents to downtown Knoxville Tuesday as filming continued for the upcoming film, "Dog Years."

People lined the area around Market Square as crews set up the scene in front of the Oliver Royale Restaurant.

Filming began in front of the restaurant shortly after Chase and Reynolds arrived on scene.

Reynolds co-stars in the film with actress Ariel Winter, best known for her role on "Modern Family." However, Winter did not appear to be in Tuesday's scene.

Chase is playing Reynold's best friend in the film. He shot his last scene in Knoxville Tuesday night.

Chase is known for his roles in "Caddyshack" and the "National Lampoon's Vacation" series.

Filming for the movie began June 6 at Neyland Stadium and is expected to continue throughout the month around Knoxville.

Visit Knoxville says the film is expected to employ more than 100 people.

It's been nearly 10 years since a major film was shot in Knoxville.
