Our local boy Cullen Moss was on CBS’s Reckless last Sunday, and he finally got the stills to prove it. So, if you missed it, get to your Primetime On Demand channels or go online now and look for Cullen who plays the shrewd Charleston lawyer, Carter Davidson, in the episode, Deep Waters.
The Longest Ride is getting more love, this time from the former “first daughter,” Jenna Bush and the Today Show. They came to Elkin, NC to do a piece on Nick Sparks and the film. So, be on the lookout for that soon!
If you see a big 30 ton crane outside of Okami Japanese Steakhouse today, that is just Food Lion shooting a commercial…they will be all around town this week.
Secrets & Lies is back in their hood in Porter’s Neck.
Sleepy Hollow is over at the Cape Fear Club on Chestnut tonight and into the wee hours.
Who we once thought was dead, is now painfully surfacing to Abbie and Jenny Mills. Their mother. They both thought their Madre went nuts, was committed, then took her own life. Whether she is dead and we see her through the girls memories, or she shows up in present day, know that Lori Mills is coming. Lori is being played by Aunjanue Ellis. You might know her from The Menalist, True Blood, or the most recent feature Get on Up.
We have 39 days until the premiere of Sleepy Hollow, Monday nights, 9pm on FOX.
FILM INCENTIVES UPDATE: The General Assembly is more interested in kicking the can down the road or completely ignoring sustaining jobs and job creation.
From what I am hearing, things don’t look so well for NC Film. It isn’t over until the final gavel hits, however, unless something drastic comes to light, I am being told that they will be adjourning sine die on Friday (sine die is an adjournment until the next session), with film not even on the list. GET MORE DETAILS NOW
We will still be quite busy this year with Bolden!, Yellow Footprints and The Choice going into production next month, but come 2015, we won’t have enough money to sustain more than 3 decent projects statewide. As it stands right now, productions can’t even apply for the grant until 2015, so it’s gonna be very dry in the New Year.
With that being said, here’s a reminder:
Ernie Ward, candidate for District 8 who is running against Bill Rabon is holding a fundraiser TOMORROW NIGHT. If you can make it and you live in his district, PLEASE attend!
The man puts People and Puppies before Politics!
