Where USC goes, Will Ferrell will follow -- as long as he’s not too busy filming or promoting a movie.

Ferrell (“Anchorman”) was in Chicago last week for his alma matter’s game against Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind. and dined Thursday at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House. Earlier that week, Ferrell appeared at a charity event on USC’s campus dressed as Tommy Trojan and accompanied by the school’s marching band.

Michael Shannon (“Man of Steel”) dined Saturday at Paris Club after screening “The Harvest” during the Chicago International Film Festival at AMC River East. Stuart Townsend (“Betrayal”) had dinner Oct. 17 at Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen in the Gold Coast.

Smashing Pumpkins rocker Billy Corgan was on hand Oct. 16 for the Christian Fenger Academy High School fundraiser at Sunda. Eagles singer Glenn Frey dined Tuesday and Sunday at Centro Ristorante. Country singer Kip Moore had dinner Oct. 13 at Chicago Cut Steakhouse.

The cast of NBC’s “Chicago Fire,” including Taylor Kinney, Jesse Spencer and Eamonn Walker, had dinner Friday at Siena Tavern. Spencer dined Tuesday at Sunda and Sophia Bush ("One Tree Hill"), who is filming the "Chicago Fire" spin-off, "Chicago PD," dined there Sunday.
