WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 06/19/2013 – Under the Dome, Eastbound and Down, Tammy, Planters Peanuts


Totally excited about tomorrow’s Red Carpet Premiere of Under the Dome!  Wooo Hoo!  Okay, sorry, had to get that out!  The Domies are shooting on 15th St., then they head back to the lot for the remainder of the day.  The Huffington Post released their next big article.  This time they try to break the bad Dean Norris!  Here’s an excerpt from the article:

What are the most important things to know about Big Jim Rennie, for those who aren’t familiar with the book?
Big Jim, he’s a great character. He loves his town, but I think he’s probably, at some level, psychopathic. He likes to be in charge. Stephen King told me I was Dick Cheney. [Big Jim’s] reading Winston Churchill’s biography in the story … And everybody else is freaked out by the dome and Big Jim seems to be like, “Wow, my time has come.” He’s fun because … he’s the only one that interacts with every other character. They have their own things, the groupings and people that interact, but Big Jim interacts with all of them and he interacts differently with all of them because he has a different personality …


Your next Mullet Alert for Eastbound and Down will be at Carolina Farmin’ on Market St.

Planter’s Peanuts is filming their national spot today at Port City Church, 250 Vision Dr., they will move to the Convention Center tomorrow.

Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates get to have all the fun today because fires will be a blazin’ on the set of Tammy.  The scene takes place on McRae between Brunswick and Bess and it includes a car pulling up beside a parked RV and as the three characters exchange dialogue, one of them pours gasoline on the car then throws a lit bottle of gasoline at the car – car explodes into flames.  haha!  Awesome.  No worries, the set is being closely monitored by the Wilmington Fire Department at all times).  There will also be a driving scene on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge.  Heads up, sadly, Tammy’s stint in Wilmywood ends this Friday!  I will be a sad day indeed!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!
