Wilmywood, NC Film Crew Member of the Day:
Toni Collette took some time away from the set of Tammy to head to New York for the CBS Upfronts yesterday as she and Dylan McDermott star in Hostages .
It will have a limited 15-episode order. Her co-stars Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon continue filming today in Carolina Beach. They will return to the State Park, then make a company move to Snow’s Cut Park.
Continuing with the CBS Upfronts, Under the Dome was presented yesterday at Carnagie Hall. It was well received from those in the audience. I asked one journalist, AJ Marechal from Variety, who was multitasking, blogging and tweeting every detail of the presentation, her thoughts about UTD. She replied with, “intriguing, cool effects.” She is funny as hell and straight to the point. I highly recommend you follow her
@Variety_AJM. Under the Dome is shooting on Point Harbor Rd. at the boat salvage yard, then they will head back to the lot. If you would like to be an extra on the show, and haven’t done so yet, they are looking for more new faces for tomorrow’s shoot. Visit NCasting’s FB page for details.
Here’s the exclusive preview from the Upfronts yesterday:
It’s a great day to be a cast and crew member of The Perfect Summer as they are in Wrightsville Beach again today! You will get to see Eric Roberts on set this afternoon and all day tomorrow. Gorgeous weather, so I hope they get some downtime to jump in the ocean today!
CROWD NEEDED TOMORROW: The production is looking for a crowd for the “surf competition” scene at Wrightsville Beach tomorrow. No pay, but if you want be out there, you can come and go as you please. There will some of our favorite local surfers out there, so they would love to see you supporting them. Let alone you can hang out with the cast and crew. Fun day. (The location is Wrightsville Beach, the Stone St. access (google it) from 7:30am-3pm)
HBO’s Eastbound and Down is getting closer to their production date and they are scouting your neighborhood! I have heard from two friends now that they want to use their houses for the show. Hey, don’t say no! It’s good money! The Fincannon’s are casting principal and NCasting is casting extras. Production begins May 28th.
That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am on Sunny 104.5. Got Scoop? email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB . Until then, that’s a wrap!
