Another day in Wrightsville Beach for the cast and crew of The Perfect Summer. Jason Castro had a great first day as the laid back surf shop owner yesterday. They will be back at it at the same location today, Aussie Island Surf Shop. Looks like we will see Jason Castro, Katie Garfield, JD Banks, Adam Horner and Justin Barnhill shooting. I am gonna try to stop by the set today and get some scoop for ya! Thanks to Gary Wheeler for the set pic!
A fun filled day for Tammy as well as they finally get off Nun St. and head to Castle Hayne. We will be seeing just Melissa McCarthy today with about 8 extras on hand. There will be a detour as a 1-mile section of Blue Clay Road will be closed to traffic from Old Mill Road to Holly Road today.
Yesterday I posted the preview for Sleepy Hollow that was shot in the Charlotte area. If you missed it, check it out now!
Super huge scene for Under the Dome as they are already rolling today at 5th and Castle. Huge stunts too! The scene involves a semi-truck crashing into a water tower. This had the talented set construction folks super busy all week, building the faux water tower. I was hoping for major explosions today, but I heard they are doing the visual fx in post (but maybe we will get lucky). But it will still be exciting because not only is it a crazy fun stunt filled day, but it will also be star-studded as well. Dean Norris, Rachelle LeFevre, Samantha Mathis, Natalie Martinez, Colin Ford – just about all the lead characters will be in this scene as well as a plethora of extras! Where will be tons of coverage, so they will be shooting until the sun goes down. This scene will affect traffic patterns as well so find an alternate route!
Doron Ofir Casting (the casting company for Jersey Shore), is casting a new reality show, American Proud – The Party is Down South. They are searching for the proudest Southerners who are at least 21 years old that are ready to show the world they’re country strong! “If you like your chicken fried, and you’re full of American pride, we are looking for you!” Local boy Mike Waggett is a recruiter for the company and is asking you to: “Git’er done and apply now!” Email a photo of yourself along with your contact info and tell him why you are “American Proud. ”
Fianlly, CONGRATS to Vanessa and Kim! NCasting got the gig! They will be casting Eastbound and Down Season 4. Look for opportunities to work on the HBO show soon!
