Good Morning! Well over the weekend we said goodbye to our super hero action folks as Max Steel wrapped this weekend. However, like they say, one door closes, and two more open! So, who is walking right on through?
The gorgeous Jack Huston (American Hustle, Boardwalk Empire, Kill Your Darlings), has been cast as co-lead in the The Longest Ride. As two stories collide in this romance, it looks like Jack will be playing the younger version of the elderly man who is trapped in a car following a crash. As he awaits a rescue his life flashes before his eyes, and his mind is flooded with memories of his deceased wife. Oona Chaplin will play his wife when she was young.
And with all that being said, the dashing Scott Eastwood has made it into town. Scott stars as the bull rider and those exciting scene will be shot in Winston-Salem, so I hear anyway! Britt Robertson (Under the Dome) will be following shortly! Production begins in just a couple of weeks.
Over the weekend, our handsome actor/director/author Eriq LaSalle rolled into town as well. He will be directing episode 10 of Under the Dome. Over the weekend, he spent some time with Peter Weller who is directing episode 9.
Under the Dome will be out and about today, plus they are running a 2nd unit as well. You might spot them on Sunnyvale Dr. and Chestnut St. today.
