Melissa McCarthy FIRES Extra For Mistreating Kid!

 

Marching orders were issued yesterday in Boiling Springs Lake on the set of Tammy as the star of the movie, Melissa McCarthy, had a PA remove an ill-tempered mother who was there with her son to play as Extras in the big lake scene.  The extras count quickly diminished by a pair when Melissa saw the woman being very “unmotherly” when trying to discipline her out-of-control child. TMZ got wind of it and reported:

The extra, a woman in her 20s, brought along her child — age approximately 4-5 — for the daylong shoot by a lake … and the standard $58 payday … sources tell TMZ. Witnesses say the young mom had been struggling with her kid all morning … constantly harping on the child to “stop it” and quiet down … loudly enough to disrupt the production, which included more than 200 extras. Sources say the last straw came when the mom harshly jerked the child up in the air by the wrist — and McCarthy saw it all. The director IMMEDIATELY had PAs bounce the woman … saying she wouldn’t tolerate abuse on her set … and that was that.

Read the full TMZ story!

I CAN CONFIRM THAT IT IS INDEED TRUE.  The Extras Casting Director said that she respects Melissa not just as an actress, but also as a person.  McCarthy has expressed that she will not tolerate such behavior.  She has also stated multiple times during production meetings and on set that it is very important to her that all cast and crew have a pleasant experience while working on Tammy.

Well said, Melissa, very well said.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 04/30/2013 – Upfronts, Tammy, Under the Dome, VIP Passes to Port City Pop Con and more

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD

LISTEN TO PODCAST

Happy Tuesday! Well,  NBC must be whistlin’ Dixie, and maybe a little of “We are the Champions”.  Kudos just keep coming for our Revolution!  Not only did they pick up a hefty 22 episode, season two, but TV Guide has now deemed the show a “Season MVP: This year’s Best.”

Revolution’s Giancarlo Esposito will be making a guest appearance this Thursday at the Country Club of Landfall for the annual fundraising luncheon for Coastal Horizons Center.  He will be getting personal, speaking about the things that have personally affected his life and family members.  This is a luncheon that should NOT be missed.  Tickets are still available by contacting Farah Boyce 910-790-0187 or fboyce@coastalhorizons.org.  They are asking for a donation of $50 or more to attend the event.

FYI: In case you wanted to know, Lesley over at the Hollywood Reporter has been keeping a close eye on the Upfronts.  Here’s her up-to-date list of all the shows for network TV.

Tammy begins shooting this Friday and they are employing A LOT of people!  And when I say a lot…good Lord!  During the next 8 weeks, they will be hiring 2000+ Extras for this film alone.  And it’s all local!  So thank you Melissa & Ben!  Marty Siu Casting will be quite busy. You can visit her Facebook page for all casting opportunities.

Marty wanted to give a big shout out to the many who worked on Iron Man 3 including Jackie Burch and Tona Dahlquist for the Casting & Extras Casting along with all the local actors who got some screen time including  James Rackley, Anthony Reynolds and many more.

Iron Man 3 isn’t doing too shabby either and it won’t even hit theaters here in the USA until tomorrow.  IM3 has grossed a total of almost $200 million over seas so far.  In its Italian debut last weekend., it is officially the most successful April opening in Italy grossing $11.3 million!  Robert Downey Jr. will be on the Kelly & Michael this morning as well as the Daily Show tonight.

Under the Dome will be on location today.  They kick things off at 15th/Rankin this morning then make a short company move to Chestnut St.  There are a lot of extras casting opportunities for the show.  Visit Vanessa NCasting’s Facebook Page for all the details.

Finally, Port City Pop Con is just around the corner and I would just LOVE to give VIP tickets away!  Soooo, here we go.  ENTER TO WIN NOW!
