Happy Tuesday loves! This morning we finally posted the good news! God, I’ve been sitting on this news for like 2 weeks! Maria Bello tweeted on set, so no more secrets!
Mattel and Dolphin has brought in one of my favorite actresses! Maria Bello! This talented lady has over 35 feature film credits under her belt and she is now adding Max Steel to her roster! Maria will be playing Max’s mom, Molly.
Maria arrived in Wilmywood and got right to work last week.
Yesterday it was a mad house at not only the Fox Upfronts but at the Fox Fan Fronts! Twitter was on fandom fire especially when our Sleepy Hollow cast arrived. Then, something else caught the eyes of many fans. Is that a ring on Tom Mison’s left hand? Yes, indeed it is! According to multiple sources, Tom Mison married his love Charlotte Coy in a small and private ceremony about a month ago. So, congrats to the gorgeous couple!
Today, we have the Upfronts for ABC at 4pm EST. Got any favorite shows on that network? Secrets and Lies begins production in July from what I’ve been hearing, they will be a mid-season pick-up.
Under the Dome is shooting all over the place today including Winnabow as well as all of their sound stages. Max Steel is back at a private location on Middlesound Loop Road.
Big Congrats to our local comic book shop, Memory Lane Comics! They were just nominated for an Eisner Award – the 2014 Will Eisner “Spirit of Comics” Retailer Award. The awards will be given out during this year’s San Diego Comic Con in July.
