The D.C. coffee shop where ‘Snowden’ is filming? It was an actual setting for the famed leaker’s dates.

A statue of the former government contractor’s likeness was just erected, quickly taken down, in a Brooklyn park. John Oliver interviewed Snowden for “Last Week Tonight.” And over in Adams Morgan, director Oliver Stone was filming a biopic about him.

The cast and crew of the upcoming film “Snowden” took over Tryst coffee shop in the neighborhood’s main corridor to shoot a scene in which Snowden, who is played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, first met girlfriend Lindsay Mills, who’s being played by Shailene Woodley.
