WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/19/2013 EBD improves City of Wilmington, start date for Bolden!, and more.

The folks from Eastbound and Down had their wrap party on Saturday. They rented a party boat from Carolina Beach and brought it up to Wrightsville Beach in the Intercoastal Waterway. They parked it on the inlet side of the Blockade Runner. The boat took the entire cast and crew out and they partied hard. Local band, Machine Gun rocked the night away! After the party, everyone rolled over to have some more fun at the Blockade Runner.  Danny McBride was really great and posed for a lot of pics with all the crew. The HBO gang really knew how to take care of the NC film crew that works their tails off because they know Eastbound is never an easy show to produce.

Maides ParkThey also know how to take care of the City of Wilmington. A huge thank you to Eastbound and Down, Danny, Jody Hill, and the whole HBO crew.   In order to shoot scenes at Maides Park, they had to do a lot of landscaping. They spent over $1000 at the baseball field, and it looks amazing!, They re-sodded, added new diamonds and rebuilt the pitchers mound. So, thank you for saving us taxpayers some money and for beautifying our parks! I know the nearby neighborhood is grateful for your efforts.

The rain washed out a few scenes last week, so they won’t head to Charlotte until Wednesday. 1st Unit is shooting at the Cameron Art Museum and the 2nd Unit is back in Castle Hayne.

under-the-dome-cbsIt’s Dome Day once again with LIVE tweets abound with the cast members.  #UnderThe Dome during the show on CBS @ 10pm EST.  A mysterious woman (Natalie Zea) shows up “Under the Dome.”  Hell’s Kitchen in downtown Wilmington is the place to be for the viewing party. It gets underway around 9:30pm.  If you can stay up a little later, Dean Norris is back on Dave Letterman tonight on CBS!

It’s the FINAL DAY TO VOTE FOR SLEEPY HOLLOW!  An advance screening right here in Wilmywood!  And you know that means the other competing cities will be voting like mad, so PLEASE get everyone you know to VOTE!sleepyhollow

The Hollowed cast and crew worked into the ungodly hours this morning in downtown Wilmington.  But people who are working on the series don’t seem to mind when the cast members are so great to work with.  Tyler tells us what it’s like to work with Orlando Jones.  LISTEN NOW .  Sleepy Hollow is sleepin’ in today!

Christmas in Conway is at their usual spot in the Forest Hills area. Andy Garcia, Mary Louise Parker and Mandy Moore join everyone on set.

RumorslogoSome more rumors from the lot. We’re hearing that Bolden! is looking to have a start up date of September 23rd and they will go all the way into June!  Awesome, that’s a lot of jobs and local shopping at our area stores!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD: Dream comes true for Set PA on Eastbound and Down

What’s it like to work with Lindsay Lohan after her stint in rehab? To quote Poison, it’s “nothing but a good time” on the set of Eastbound and Down with Lindsay Lohan and True Blood’s Alex Skarsgard.  I’ve had a ton of emails and messages asking me how Lindsay was on set.  So, I went to one of my sources and asked.

LISTEN TO THE SCOOP NOW!

Dream comes true for Set PA on Eastbound and Down

But the best was one of the greatest stories to come form set.  Word has it that a crew member got bumped from Set PA to the luckiest guy in the world.  Apparently this guy is a great asset and everyone loves him.  So how do you thank the guy who does everything for you 16 hours a day?  You get rid of his Duck Dynasty beard, make him all pretty, and put him in a scene with Lindsay Lohan.  Oh yeah,  and grant him the wish of kissing her, too!  In the scene (which I will not reveal) he got the opportunity to kiss her a good 6 times.  So, the question is, “Is Lindsay a good kisser?”  Well according to my sources, let’s just say the man had a smile the size of Manhattan in between takes.  Thank you Danny McBride for booking her and making dreams come true!  The gang is filming on the stage today at Screen Gems as well as The Carolinian on Market in Wilmington, NC.

I will have the full report in a few.  Stand by.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/15/2013 LINDSAY LOHAN IS IN TOWN!

Lindsey Lohan

Well, I was gonna be quiet about it, but TMZ per their usual sneakiness just leaked the news. Lindsey Lohan is in town for a stint on Eastbound and Down.  SPOILER ALERT: She is playing the adult version of Kenny’s illegitimate daughter on the season and series finale.

TMZ reports there could be a spin-off based on her character in EBD Season 4…saying: “It’s a pretty big opportunity for Lindsay — her first real acting gig since she left rehab — because if she’s funny, a spin-off could be in the cards. Crazier things have happened.”

So what is like to be with her on set?  Yesterday, my sources said she was really nice to everyone and is happy to be back in the acting world.  I am actually really excited she is here because I am pulling for her to get her career back on track.  I think I have watched Mean Girls like 100 times!

Alexander Skarsgard

And if that is not enough, guess who else is in town?  If you’re a True Blood fan, you will love to know Mr. Hotness Alexander Skarsgard will be on set today as well!  Eastbound has pulled out all the stops when it comes to cameos this season!  A huge scene is supposed to go down on Eastbound and Down in Castle Hayne this afternoon, weather permitting.

Our gorgeous local boy, Dominic Santana is back in the local ET news.  Or more like BET news!  Huge congrats are in order as Dominic will continue his stint on the second season of the comedy, The Game.  “I’m looking forward to what BET may have in store for me and representing Wilmington film.”   Production starts back up in October.  Love that man!  He gives the BEST hugs!  Congrats Dom!

As far as filming goes today, the weather is not helping. Christmas in Conway is supposed to back on Forest Hills Drive.

sleepyhollowSleepy Hollow is in luck as they are shooting in Atkinson today.  Hopefully the weather will hold out for them.  We are in 2nd place.  Let’s try to take over New York and reach the #1 spot to ensure our early screening of Sleepy Hollow!  We need 100 votes to reach #1 VOTE NOW and VOTE EVERY DAY.

hallmarkhouseChristmas in Conway, starring Mary Louise Parker, Andy Garcia and Mandy Moore, is back on Forest Hills Drive.  I did a quick drive by yesterday, and that thing is HUGE.  And I gotta give kudos to the locations department.  They did  a great job, because the way the house and trees are situated you can barely see it from the road.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/08/2013 – EBD, UTD Piracy, Sleepy Hollow and more

sleepyThings are heating up on Sleepy Hollow today.  After a Police officer pulls a car over, a witch sets the car on fire and it explodes!  Okay, this show is getting fun!  They will be shooting this scene right beside Screen Gems.   Don’t forget to vote today for Wilmington to have an early screening of Sleepy Hollow! We need 140 to get into 2nd place.  I know we have more people in this town that love the film industry in this town! So, come on!  It takes less than 60 seconds to vote! The contest ends August 19th.

If you hear shots being fired in the downtown area, chances are you won’t have to worry.  It’s just Eastbound and Down downtown filming.  They will be on S. Front St, Betten Court Alley, 2nd St.  I would still duck and cover cuz lately, people are cray!

Christmas in Conway goes back for some more Ferris wheel fun on Forest Hills Drive.

River Guard is back at the courthouse on Princess St for Day 3 of the courtroom scenes. I think my favorite actor on set beside Eric Ladin, has got to be Peter Jason.  It’s really hot in the courtroom (gotta keep the AC off for sound)  Yesterday, when he took his judge’s robe off during a quick break, he was sporting a white shirt and tie with black shorts and pink shoes.  Hilarious!  He is just so fun and goofy!  Everyone LOVES him!  Also, pictured is local boy, Ben Yemba, best Bailiff ever! Ha!

under-the-dome-cbsPiracy rates are up for Under the Dome about 4% since the TWC/CBS dispute and black out in some major cities.  Wow!  That’s some dedicated fans!  “We will watch no matter the cost!”  Okay, I jest, it’s not a good thing, but is does seem like people are desperate.  Why can’t they just watch it on Hulu or CBS.com?  Anywho read the whole Variety article now!

AdrenalineI am glad WECT tweeted this because it reminded me to remind you that the folks making the movie Adrenaline have a Kickstarter campaign that has only 7 days left to raise all of their $45,000.  The film stars  John Schneider(Dukes of Hazard, Smallville) along with local boy Michael Rosander and Mike Holmes.  They’ve already shot more than 65% of the flick.  I donated about a month ago.  So, get on it!  Even if its just a couple of bucks, every bit helps! DONATE NOW!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 08/01/2013 UTD, Sleepy Hollow, We’re The Millers and more.

At first I thought I was going to have a very weird day not reporting where Under the Dome was shooting, but thanks to the rain, I get to hold on to that one more time!

British bats

They are having a bit of a crisis.  It seems as though the cast and crew are competing for space with the creatures of the night.  Under the Dome has pushed their shoot not only because fo the rain but also because these flying rodents are everywhere.  100s of them.  I have to say though the Ideal Cement Factory is an Ideal place for a bat cave.  I would totally live there if I was a bat!

Here’s what’s in store for us Monday night on CBS!

Andy Garcia Deauville 2009

Sleepy Hollow is finally coming back to Wilmington from their long nights in New Bern.  They are looking for several “detective types” and “city hall types” for filming this Monday.  They are looking for both male and females between the ages of 25-65.  For more details, visit Sleepy Hollow’s casting FB page.

Don’t forget to VOTE for Wilmington to get an early screening of FOX’s Sleepy Hollow! We need about 100 votes to stay ahead of the game today!  Chicago is catching up to us!!

It’s Christmas in…well August for Eastbound and Down as they head over to the Icehouse.  Poor Danny is going to kill himself before this season wraps!  Let’s hope is better at ice skating than roller skating.  I can picture him playing hockey, can’t you?  After some chilly fun, they will can be seen throughout the Ogden area.  Some Caroling, maybe?

Heads up! I am gonna have tickets to see We’re the Millers that was shot right here in Wilmywood.  It opens Tuesday at Carmike Cinemas!  Tune in to Sunny 104.5 at 8:30am to win!
