Kim Stewart – Casting

Yay!  It’s Friday!  And a three-day weekend at that!  I would first like to give kudos to Kim, our Film Peep of the Day, and her choice in Wilmywear! Okay let’s go Under the Dome.  They are getting a very late start today, shooting at 4pm and going until early Saturday morning in Currie, NC.

tammy_wilmywoodThe Tammy cast and crew is filming on Wilmington St. and N Walker St. in Burgaw today.  A very funny scene.  Let’s just say there are cops involved!  They will also be be shooting on the road as well.  You will get a glimpse of Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon.  Plus, our lovely, local and talented gal, Barbara Weetman, has a part in this scene!

Wilmington/Clinton hometown boy, Chris McCullen, is competing in the premiere episode of TNT’s 72 HOURS airing Thursday, June 6, at 9 pm (ET/PT) on TNT, throws Chris into icy blue waters of the Yasawa Islands in Fiji.  Chris was born in Clinton, NC, but spent most of his life in the Wilmington area. He moved to San Diego to pursue his dance dreams and since has created a style of dance that teaches people how to dance to electronic music.  Good Luck Chris!

72 Hours literally DROPS you into the wild as they release nine strangers in exotic locations with nothing but a bottle of water and a GPS tracking device. In teams of three, they have just 72 hours to navigate the wilderness against treacherous terrain in a race to be the first to find a hidden briefcase filled with the $100,000 Grand Prize!!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you after the Memorial Day weekend or if breaking news comes in on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Until then, that’s a wrap!

A very slow day in Wilmywood, that is until it isn’t – you know how it goes. Ha!

TammyNot much else to say after yesterday’s bid breaking news about Melissa McCarthy firing an extra for being rough with her son on the set of Tammy in Boiling Springs Lake on Monday.  You had much to say about it! Here’s a handful of comments:

Wendy: This is awesome!!!!

Laura:  Way to go Melissa McCarthy!

Jordanna: Go Melissa! I can’t believe anyone would have the nerve to do that! If you are going to do that in public what are you doing at home? It’s one thing to tell your child to calm down and behave its another to “discipline” your child by acting worse than the child!

Ali:  Love her.

Mary-Jo:  So glad to hear about a so called parent getting “disciplined” ! Love, love, love Melissa!! She ROCKS!

Tammy: Much Respect to MM

They are shooting on Frederickson Blvd today (The Battleship exit), and can expect to see Melissa McCarthy and her co-star Susan Sarandon on set.

Under The Dome is in Currie, NC today.  Eastbound and Down is in its final stages of pre-production.

That’s is all that is going on today.  I can’t wait to tell you about some of things that I know, but I would get totally reamed if I dished. So, lips are sealed for now!

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: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Until then, that’s a wrap!

Melissa McCarthy FIRES Extra For Mistreating Kid!

 

Marching orders were issued yesterday in Boiling Springs Lake on the set of Tammy as the star of the movie, Melissa McCarthy, had a PA remove an ill-tempered mother who was there with her son to play as Extras in the big lake scene.  The extras count quickly diminished by a pair when Melissa saw the woman being very “unmotherly” when trying to discipline her out-of-control child. TMZ got wind of it and reported:

The extra, a woman in her 20s, brought along her child — age approximately 4-5 — for the daylong shoot by a lake … and the standard $58 payday … sources tell TMZ. Witnesses say the young mom had been struggling with her kid all morning … constantly harping on the child to “stop it” and quiet down … loudly enough to disrupt the production, which included more than 200 extras. Sources say the last straw came when the mom harshly jerked the child up in the air by the wrist — and McCarthy saw it all. The director IMMEDIATELY had PAs bounce the woman … saying she wouldn’t tolerate abuse on her set … and that was that.

Read the full TMZ story!

I CAN CONFIRM THAT IT IS INDEED TRUE.  The Extras Casting Director said that she respects Melissa not just as an actress, but also as a person.  McCarthy has expressed that she will not tolerate such behavior.  She has also stated multiple times during production meetings and on set that it is very important to her that all cast and crew have a pleasant experience while working on Tammy.

Well said, Melissa, very well said.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 05/21/2013 – Melissa McCarthy, EBD, UTD and More

It was the final day of production for The Perfect Summer.  The day ended with Sydney Penny (All My Children) and Louis Mandylor (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). Major kudos to Director Gary Wheeler and Casting Director Kim Stewart.  Here’s a few shots from the last day:

As seen in yesterday’s update, Eastbound and Down: Season 4s new production start date will be around June 11th.    It was originally slated to begin filming around the 28th of this month.  Danny McBride is in town so be on the lookout for Kenny!

Tammy-ExtrasAnother crazy day as the Tammy cast and crew returns to Spring Lake Park in Boiling Springs Lake today.  Another fun day of over 200 extras and the hilarity of Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon.  There was definitely talk in the extras holding pen as the killer tornado in Oklahoma passed through the town of Moore.  People were definitely affected.  It also affected Melissa’s TV show.

CBS decided to pull Monday night’s season finale of Melissa McCarthy’s Mike & Molly because its plot featured a tornado.  The network said in a statement, “Due to the tragic events this afternoon in Oklahoma, we are pre-empting tonight’s season finale of Mike & Molly, which has a related storyline.”  Instead, the network opted to show a repeat, but added, “The season finale will be broadcast at an appropriate date.”

The episode now on the shelf is titled Windy City. A network plot summary reads: “As [a] tornado descends on Chicago, Mike and Molly each confess important news to each other.”

Under the Dome will be on 15th St. near downtown Wilmington for the remainder of the day.  That’s means you have another opportunity to catch a glimpse of Mike Vogel and Rachelle LeFevre on location today.

Be on the lookout because another megastar rolls into town this week!

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: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Until then, that’s a wrap!

Another Star Rolls Into Wilmywood!

Danny McBride Rolls Into Town

 

Enemy Mig has pushed production of Eastbound and Down: Season 4.  Originally slated to begin filming around the 28th of this month, it looks as though they won’t start shooting until June 11th.  Even though production has been delayed, it didn’t stop the star of the show, Danny McBride, from coming to Wilmywood.  Yep, he’s here and apparently spent part of his weekend at the movie theaters, seeing the #1 movie at the box office, Star Trek into Darkness.

It’s the last day of Swirl Films’ The Perfect Summer today.  They will be in Carolina Beach on Lake Park Blvd.  Everyone really enjoyed Eric Roberts being here for the past few weeks.  And just a little FYI, Eric has been a very busy man.  He’s is involved in over 42 projects due to come out this year and some in 2014, plus he is acting in 7 other projects that are currently in development.  Very busy man indeed!  Go here for updated picture gallery of The Perfect Summer

 

On a side note, I think it’s kinda cool and interesting that most of the premium cable channels are shooting in North Carolina.  Eastbound and Down, Season 4 begins next week, right here in Wilmington.  Outside of the Wilmington area, Cinemax’s Banshee continues in Mooresville, while Showtime’s Homeland is just about under way and is casting their stand-ins and photo doubles in the Charlotte area as well.

Iron Man 3 box office update: This weekend IM3 pulled in $35.2 million domestically.  The domestic total is $337 million.  Worldwide, it has cleared ONE BILLION, making it #9 on the list of all time worldwide box office gross.

The Tammy folks went down to Spring Lake Park in Boiling Springs Lake early this morning and will stay there tomorrow as well.  With 203 extras on hand and Melissa McCarthy on a Sea Doo, how can this not be a fun scene to shoot! The fabulous Susan Sarandon is on set today as well.  They are on a rain delay but expecting to shoot as some point.  Here’s a couple of pics from this morning:

553058_10152732374530117_498634129_nUnder The Dome will be shooting on Chestnut St.  this morning then they make their company move to the lot later in the day.  You can catch a glimpse of Rachelle LeFevre, Mike Vogel, Natalie Martinez, and Dean Norris if you are out that way.
