Actor Ian Bell, playing Isaac Newton, could be seen yesterday on the corner of NW Market St and 22nd Ave NW telling fortunes.

Isaac Newton spotted on Market St

Perhaps you saw him yesterday telling fortunes in the sun on the intersection of NW Market St. and 22nd Ave NW?

Of course, we mean the one and only Isaac Newton, who had his own booth setup, complete with crystal ball and a film crew. It was hard not to get distracted by him.

Director Tracy Dethlefs of Hullabaloo TV, local writer/producer and former West Seattle Herald/Ballard News-Tribune Columnist Lori Hinton and actor Ian Bell (playing Sir Isaac Newton) hit the streets of Ballard to shoot a pilot project aimed to inspire kids to learn about the wonders of science and math.

Because the film crew has a nondisclosure contract with their client, they couldn't say much more, but there may be an update in coming months.
