Looks like Dennis Quaid has discovered the perfect remedy for long hours on movie sets: a break with a bottlenose dolphin!
The actor, who’s filming the romantic comedy What to Expect When You’re Expecting in the Atlanta area, spent some quality time with son Thomas Boone during a behind-the-scenes tour at the Georgia Aquarium’s Dolphin Tales exhibit on Sept. 19. Together they met Lily the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin (who certainly gets around – she met Elton John and his little boy, Zachary, that same week!).
