Local Actor Nabs Opening Scene in “Last Vegas” OJ Takes You on a Set Tour, Conjuring #1 Again!

Tonight you can go see one of our local actors in the flick with some of the most legendary actors. Josh Cohen got the amazing opportunity to land a role in Last Vegas, which opens in theaters today!

josh cohenJosh says it’s a small part in the first scene of the movie, but that is HUGE if you ask me.  What actor wouldn’t love to be in the opening scene of a movie with the caliber of actors cast in this flick!  But, yes, he is being appropriately humble.  So in the opening scene we go straight to a flashback to 1950’s Brooklyn.  Josh plays Jimmy,  the head greaser.  “The young Robert De Niro, young Morgan Freeman, young Kevin Kline, and Young Michael Douglas are causing trouble in my buddy’s general store, said Josh. “My two greaser friends and I walk in to see our friend Danny, the shipowners son, on the floor. The kids then try to steal a bottle of Josh Cohen_runalcohol and run out of the store while we chase them.  I’m the first one to call the kids out for why my buddy is lying on the floor.  It was a great experience.”

Josh has some stories to tell including how he got the gig and a hilarious story with he and Kevin Kline in the make up trailer.  LISTEN NOW!

I spoke with Johnny Griffin with the Wilmington Film Commission, and he said that there was no ranking order for the Top Film Locations Worldwide, it was in alphabetical order.  Good!  I didn’t like being #9!  So hell yeah!  Love making that top ten list!  That is HUGE!

ConjuringThe Conjuring takes the top spot debuting at #1 on both DVD and Blu-Ray charts!  According to Nielsen research, of its first-week sales, 33 percent were on Blu-ray Disc.

The Squeeze is shooting downtown again today at 128 S. Front St and on the street on the 400 block of S. 2nd St.  They are going to have 5 of the cast members on set.  And say good bye to the beautiful Jillian Murray she heads back home today! (unless weather makes her stay for another day of shooting).

Haven’t had the chance to see the set of Sleepy Hollow.  No Worries.  Orlando Jones personally takes you.  Check out one of his WhoSay videos.  Pretty damn hilarious!
