Lots of fun to be had at the first annual Port City Pop Con at the Wilmington Convention Center and lots of recognizable faces too! I will be updating this page throughout the weekend.
WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD
Well, I have to give a big thank you to a few news outlets for giving some kudos to the surfers. Wednesday, a couple of surfers who were working on The Perfect Summer saved some people stuck in a bad rip tide. See Cassie’s story here in the Star News. This is nothing new, however. If you spend your summer at the beach, you know our awesome surfers save lives every week, even more ofter than our lifeguards. It’s just something they do. They are always scanning the water. They totally deserve the recognition. The Perfect Summer, starring Eric Roberts, is shooting in Carolina Beach today. They head over to Fort Fisher tomorrow.
Now moving on to Tammy. Looks like Melissa Mc Carthy, Nat Faxon and Toni Collette will be shooting today on Nun St. And speaking of Toni, another star sighting! There was a HUGE buzz in the air at Whole Foods Wednesday around lunchtime. Darcie reports two store employees were excitedly chatting about Toni Collette after one had just rang up her purchase. Love it!
There’s going to be star sighting GALORE this weekend. Not only due to all the stars filming, but POP CONNING as well.
Dozens of stars are here now and are gearing up for tonight as Day 1 of Port City Pop Con begins! Michael Biehn, Ernie Hudson, Dee Wallace, Margot Kidder, Camden Toy, Scott Grimes, Bob Guiney, Rob Wiethoff (John Marston RDD), Robbie Rist (Oliver, Brady Bunch).
Great line up! I will definitely see you there! That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am on Sunny 104.5. Got Scoop? email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Until then, that’s a wrap!
