Commuters are furious with Arnold Schwarzenegger, because filming for his latest movie tied up downtown LA rush-hour traffic. “I hated that,” said city Public Works accounts manager Abe Rasheed, whose usual 25-minute commute from Pasadena stretched to nearly an hour. Despite the traffic, filming of “End of Days” was too good a deal to refuse, said Michael Bobenko of the Entertainment Industry Development Corp., which issues film permits for the city. If the city had refused, it could have lost the $100 million movie and its cast of hundreds to New York, he said.
