We confirmed that actor Frankie Muniz stopped for lunch Wednesday at Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches in downtown Fort Wayne.

What the movie and “Malcolm in the Middle” sitcom star and race car driver ordered and when we don’t know. Staff at the “freaky fast” sandwich shop, 101 W. Wayne St., were just a little too busy to tell us. We’re thinking a nice Big John because he likely was on a break from rehearsals before Wednesday night’s “Dancing with the Stars: Live” tour performance at the Embassy Theatre.

Or maybe something with salsa would have been appropriate for Muniz, who finished third with partner Witney Carson on Season 25 of the ABC show last fall. The show is at 7:30 p.m. at Embassy, 125 W. Jefferson Blvd. For details, see
