Also attending this year’s comic con is NC shot Tusk from Kevin Smith as well as Banshee. Our comic book writer Scott Lope is also hanging with all the talented comic book artists and finally, we got one more piece of Wilmywood fun on the West Coast.
Wilmington based, Dan Burke is loving this! His British Taxis have been hired to represent the new show Gotham (Fox). They have dressed the vehicles up as Gotham PD cars! They have four of them giving free rides to fans. It’s been causing quite a stir on instagram! What? A local Wilmington business is getting money from Hollywood? Now, that’s a Hollywood Handout!
Big Wilmywood birthday wishes to go out today! First off, happy birthday to North Carolina boy Jason Mott! You know Jason! He’s the guy who writes books when he isn’t writing poetry or racing cars. He wrote a little novel called The Returned and then it was turned into a TV show called Resurrection and it’s returning this fall to ABC. Mr. Mott has a new novel ready for pre-order called The Wonder Of All Things. Happy Birthday Jason!
And of the horror, how did we forget to say “Cheers” to this guy on Wednesday! Our other Wilmywood birthday shout out goes to the one and only Tom Mison. In case you didn’t know, Tom plays Ichabod Crane on the FOX series Sleepy Hollow. (but you knew that didn’t you??) The Wilmywood Daily will be sure to send Tom some belated birthday donuts from Britt’s!! Happy Birthday, Tom!
