THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/12/2014 Joyce Gilliard, Jack Bender, UTD, SNL, Red Zone, How & Why

cropped-utdset062013_0012.jpgHUMP DAAAYYY!  Let’s do this! Under the Dome returns to EUE/Screen Gems wrapping up the premiere episode.  I think they are on more sound stages this season.  That means more cool locations we will never see until the show. Argh! Later this week they will head to some of their favorite spots in Currie and Burgaw.

EP Jack Bender

Jack Bender directed the first episode for season two.  Not only is he a talented director, but a talented artist as well.   The Wilma W. Daniels Gallery (200 Hanover St.) will be showcasing his work beginning this Saturday.  The artwork will be on display from the 15th through the 29th of this month.  Three of his pieces will be from Season One  of Under the Dome.  Think Pink Stars!  We will also get a sneak peek at some of the beautiful pieces for the upcoming season. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday 12pm-5pm.  However, a special night is reserved for you to mingle with the artist that is Jack Bender on Saturday, March 22nd from 6pm-9pm.


Our beautiful hair stylist Joyce Gilliard, who got injured on the set of Midnight Rider in Jesup, GA and airlifted to the hospital, is getting her stitches out this morning.  She thanks everyone for her support.  She said she misses her Sleepy Hollow family and she looks forward to working again one day, but right now her main focus is healing.  Completely.  Love to you beautiful lady!  She took to tweeting this morning with an update.

ABC’s Secrets and Lies headed downtown super early this morning to CFCC’s Union station.  It’s gonna be a big scene, lots of extras.

michael-cera-john-hawkesYesterday, we reported FX is FINALLY doing some scouting around Wilmington this week.  Charlie Kaufmann’s How and Why stars Michael Cera and John Hawkes.  Production offices open in about two weeks.

Paul Hannah

Paul Hannah

The Sin Seer‘s producer and director flew in from LA this week as auditions are currently underway.  They are all about hiring as many locals as they can.  This includes actors and crew.  So congrats to you if you have an audition lined up with Overflow Entertainment‘s Paul Hannah and Angela White!

melissaMelissa McCarthy is on one hell of a subliminal marketing campaign connecting the views of Mike & Molly with her upcoming feature film Tammy, shot of course right here in Wilmywood.  If you remember she had Susan Sarandon on a couple of episodes on her CBS sitcom.  Next up?  Kathy Bates.  How many other cast members will guest star as we lead up to the Tammy release on July 2nd?

And speaking of Tammy, a little FYI, Allison Janney will be on Queen Latifah today!


Some UNCW students are shooting a short documentary on the film incentives.  They have been interviewing people like Aaron Syrett from the NC FIlm Office, Wilmington Film Commission’s Johnny Griffin and Screen Gems’ Bill Vassar.

Shaun_KeepItRollingAs stated on their Facebook page, “Keep It Rolling” is a short documentary film about the North Carolina Film Tax Incentive and it’s significance to a healthy economy in North Carolina. Directing is Robert Conley. Sarah Flores is producing.  They are concerned about their future as well as everyone else’s. Show some love and support to these college students and LIKE their Facebook Page.


If you are wonder what Kim Stewart is up to, she’s busy working on casting Upwards with director Gary Wheeler.  The project is shooting in Charlotte.
