Happy Thursday my awesome peeps! Let’s get right to it!
My article for Entertainment Weekly’s “The Community” section is out and like I said on Facebook recently, it is my dream article. It’s all about Wilmington, so begging and pleading with you to share it! I cannot tell you how excited I am to be able to bring awareness to the Wilmington film scene and share it with the world! SHARE NOW: http://bit.ly/RsiY2N I am totally counting on you! Thank you in advance my fabulous peeps! Send me a message and let me know you have shared it!
Mattel’s Max Steel is two weeks away from going into production and they are prepping like mad. My sources tell me that Max McGrath himself, Ben Winchell could be arriving as soon as this weekend in Wilmywood! His counterpart Ana Villafane who plays Sydney Gardner should be arriving soon after.
A surprising turn of events came out yesterday regarding FOX’s Sleepy Hollow. It looks as though the massive production will be going in a different direction when it comes to background talent. A new extras casting director was named for season two. Ashli Bogart will be taking on the monster that is Sleepy Hollow. READ MORE.
And speaking of flying in, Wilmywood welcomes writer/director Charlie Kaufman into town. He’s gearing up for FX’s How and Why which begins production at the end of the month. And guess who is making a return! Just as Revolution’s Graham Rogers came back for Red Zone, we welcome another Revolution alum back for our FX pilot. Tim Guinee, who played Danny’s father on Rev, is returning for the comedy pilot. As I was checking in with the handsome devil as I do from time to time, I got the exciting news confirmed yesterday. “I’m really excited to come back to Wilmington,” Tim said. “It’s like coming home.” Although Tim has been all over the place filming TV shows and features, he’s been in NC quite a lot for our Charlotte show, Homeland. Welcome back, Tim! We love you!
And since it is Throwback Thursday, he’s a hilarious memory from 2012! NBC’s Revolution star David Lyons donated money to inflict pain on his cast members during our radiothon – Sorry Tim Guinee, but it’s flu shot time!
Under the Dome is headed back to the Brooklyn Arts District again so get ready for some road closures and some snap, crackle, booms and pops. Yes, they get to play with loud toys again. They will be off tomorrow for Good Friday and will resume shooting Monday in Wilmington.
Heading over to Charlotte for a spell, the feature film Max which starts production in a few weeks has announced more cast members for their “war dog” flick. Joining Josh Wiggins are Thomas Haden Church and Jay Hernandez.
And congrats to Banshee‘s Geno Segers and Afton Williamson. They were just upgraded to series regulars! Woop Woop! Congrats!
