Heather Lind ‘Turns’ to Wilmywood as Ichabod’s Ex.

So earlier this week we discovered that we will be meeting an old flame of Ichabod Crane.  Oooh, nice rhyming rhythm that has.  Well, as Sleepy Hollow gears up for episode five, we can safely tell you it is Heather Lind of AMC’s Turn fame that will guest star as Mary Wells, an ex ball and chain of  Ichabod Crane (wow, did it again) before he traveled across the pond to the good old US of A.

While she appears all innocent and sweet, TV LINE says, “Mary has a darker side — and will prove to be flighty, moody and prone to fits of extreme jealousy.”

Since our Sleepyheads are working on episode 4, we should see this lovely lady arriving any day now!  Welcome to the Wilmywood family Heather!

SATURDAY NIGHT : Win a Meet n Greet with Tom Mison, autographed Under the Dome/Sleepy Hollow Gear

We have a very special fundraiser for the adorable 3 year old, Sadie Hulsey.  She is the granddaughter of our own, Wilmywood crew member, Kirk Smith.

Sadie was diagnosed with (JMML) Juvenile Leukemia at just 17 months old, which is as devastating emotionally as it is financially.

We are coming together as a film community to support one of our own.  So, please join us Saturday, June 28th at Courts and Sports (3525 Lancelot Ln) beginning at 6pm.   We will have live music from The Polar Bear Blues Band and admission is free.

There are a ton of raffle prizes including: an original oil painting by Wilmington artist Doug Campbell, several B&W signed etchings by Christopher Alexander.

tomMison_IchabodAutographed Sleepy Hollow and Under the Dome merchandise (shirts, baseball caps, posters) signed by our favorite Wilmywood stars including Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie and many others. Raffle tickets are 1 FOR $5 OR 5 FOR $20.

And the biggun!!  We will be auctioning off a MEET N GREET with Tom Mison.  Yep!  Ichabod Crane himself. And guess who the auctioneer will be?  The one and only EP/Director of Sleepy Hollow,  Ken Olin!!

The monies raised on this night will be used to assist Sadie’s family in off setting expenses incurred with the treatment of Juvenile Leukemia, which has included a bone marrow transplant. Sadie has weekly treatments and check up appointments in Chapel Hill, the doctors want her to be close by as her condition can change rapidly, so out of necessity Sadie, her mother, and sister live in an apartment in Chapel Hill (which has its own costs of food, rent, and utilities) while the family still maintains a separate home in Wilmington. Sadie’s father travels every weekend to and from Chapel Hill to be with her, so there is the high cost of fuel as well. All the above, plus medical expenses have put a strain on this young family’s finances. With your support we can make this journey a whole lot easier for their family.

Courts and Sports as part of their F.I.L.M. Industry Night, will be giving all people involved in the film industry a discount on food and drink. Showing their unwavering support for the people in film industry and their families, in addition to sponsoring the event, they have also graciously offered to donate 10% of their net proceeds from the night to Sadie’s family!

Your “Favorite Food GURU” Reva and Executive Chef Andrew will be pouring the cocktails along with your “Hairstylist Extraordinaire” JoJo.  

Cornhole, VOLLEYPong, Volleyball, and Bocce ball will be your activities for the evening. So come eat, drink, be merry, buy raffle tickets, and save a child’s life.

Lets all help the family take their focus off of the finances and focus on what is really important…this little girl Sadie the joy that she brings to this world.

Who’s on TV today?

It’s a double Wilmywood Wow on David Letterman! We get to see not only Melissa McCarthy but our Domie Rachelle Lefevre as well!

Meanwhile some more Tammy love will be on Kelly & Michael as Susan Sarandon joins that crazy duo. I wonder if Miss Penny (Susan’s pup) will be there in style?

So, how did Melissa rise to the top as the most fabulous leading lady?

The wait is finally over, Wilmywood! Get ready to see TAMMY one day early! Almost 3000 folks from Wilmington worked hard on this movie, and we think you deserve to catch it BEFORE the release date!

PremiereTammy
Join us at Regal Cinemas in Mayfaire Town Center on Tuesday July 1st at 8pm! Come early as we will have Tammy’s 1986 Car and jet ski on display in front of Regal Cinemas – Yes the vehicles used in the movie!
We got tickets to give away and just maybe some special prizes too! Listen to Sunny 104.5 for all the details! See you there!! CLICK HERE FOR FB INVITE!

THIS SHOW WILL SELL OUT! BUY TICKETS NOW! 

MaxEhrichNow, back to Under the Dome. Happy birthday day to two Domies today! First up is Max Ehrich who is new to the show,. He plays Hunter, the boy who gets into the Dome. Also, big Robo-birthday wishes to Peter Weller who was just here directing episode 10 of Under the Dome.

comics-boom-studios-sleepy-hollowWithout warning or further details, Boom! Studios sent out this Sleepy Hollow comic cover and it’s gone totally viral in the Twittersphere!  Talk about a tease coming out of nowhere! BOOM! has already produced comic adaptations for Planet of the Apes, Die Hard and 28 Days Later via licensing agreement with 20th Century Fox, so why not, right? I’d buy it!

In case you didn’t believe me months ago, Nicholas Sparks was here, but not for his movie he is currently shooting, The Longest Ride. Nope, it’s the one they are shooting in September, The Choice. He went scouting with his producing buddies. Sure hope he stopped by The Longest Ride set at least to say, “Yo, what’s up? Thanks for making my book into a movie again Wilmington!”
