Employees at Cooper Farms Country Store were pleasantly surprised Wednesday, April 11, when two celebrities stopped by to film an episode of a TV show. Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flannery, better known as the Boondock Saints, filmed an episode of Reedus' AMC show Ride, in which he travels the country on motorcycles with different people.

Originally, Reedus was set to film at Sam's Restaurant but canceled the day prior, according to the restaurant's manager. Since Cooper Farms is under a confidentiality contract, the owners said they will not be commenting.
