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.


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!!

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!

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.

Another Star Rolls Into Wilmywood!

Danny McBride Rolls Into Town


Enemy Mig has pushed production of Eastbound and Down: Season 4.  Originally slated to begin filming around the 28th of this month, it looks as though they won’t start shooting until June 11th.  Even though production has been delayed, it didn’t stop the star of the show, Danny McBride, from coming to Wilmywood.  Yep, he’s here and apparently spent part of his weekend at the movie theaters, seeing the #1 movie at the box office, Star Trek into Darkness.
