NATCHEZ — Rock and Roll royalty is in town.

Even though he said he’s a Rolling Stones fan, Lazarus said he kept a respectful distance on the set.

“We walked out of the building together at one point, but I didn’t speak to him,” he said. “It was kind of interesting to see him eating lunch at the same table as Octavia Spencer two tables down from me.”
