More actors and actresses have arrived in Wilmington for The Squeeze. Yesterday, I reported that Jeremy Sumpter arrived. Now I can tell you Christopher McDonald, Jillian Murray and Katherine LaNasa flew in yesterday.
Jillian is an up and coming actress who is really popping this year. The Squeeze will one of 5 films she is working on in 2013. As for Katherine you might remember her in The Frozen Ground or better yet, The Campaign as Rose Brady.
The most recognizable face however is Christopher McDonald. You’ve seen him in, well…what haven’t you seen him in! Chris been in over 160 projects along with 8 flicks yet to be seen. I think he is most famous for playing the best jerk ever, Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore. At the airport, he was instantly spotted and some Wilmington folks said he was super nice to everyone while taking pictures with a few fans at baggage claim.

Lobbyists from Raleigh visited with Wilmington City Council during their agenda brief yesterday. The lobbyist’s spoke about what the local lawmakers could expect in 2014. The Lobbyists said that one of the most important issues facing the state concerns film incentives.
“We’re working to try and educate legislators,” said Harry Kaplan of McGuire Woods Consulting firm in Raleigh. We continue to educate them about the importance of that film credit both here in Wilmington and New Hanover County, but also across North Carolina, the jobs and economic development that it brings to the state.”
Thom Tillis, Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives, has already said he supports keeping the incentives in the state. The state film incentive legislation is currently set January, 1 2015. Learn more about the film incentives.
And last not not least how about a standing ovation for another great episode of Sleepy Hollow! Ichabod kept us laughing out loud with his “impenetrable barrier” issues with plastic and his fascination with scotch tape. But of course, the suspense, drama and curiosity blended in perfectly. Like butter baby! Kudos to writer Melissa Blake for her mad skills and to 12 year old Matt Lintz for a great performance! I will be posting, per usual, the ratings in a separate blog today by 11:30am EST.
There’s nothin’ more fun than filming at the Bellevue Cemetery in the month of October! They will be shooting tonight at that location on Princess Place Drive. Perhaps you will see good ole Headless as he chases another character on horseback. Awesome! God, I love this town!
