British actor Dominic Adams
Mornin’ peeps! We have quite a bit of film news for ya this morning! First up let’s chat about our History Channel show, SIX!
About 2 weeks ago, we introduced you to Juan Pablo Raba, a Colombian film, TV series and telenovela actor. He is playing Ricky “Buddha” Ortiz, one of the veterans on SEAL Team Six.
So now let us introduce you to his nemesis! If you are a Devious Maids fan, you already know him as Tony Bishara. However, he’s got a new role. British actor Dominic Adams will be playing the antagonist of our series, Michael.
Six follows a brotherhood of modern American warriors, Navy SEAL Team Six, whose 2014 mission to eliminate a Taliban leader in Afghanistan goes awry when they uncover a U.S. citizen working with the terrorists.
Welcome to the Wilmywood film family Dominic!
ICYMI, the extras casting director was named for SIX yesterday.
Now what else is in store for us? There is a nice buzz surrounding another show to pop up here in North Carolina. 24: Legacy, Fox’s pilot that reboots the 24 franchise with brand new characters. So, don’t expect Jack Bauer to make an entrance. And they have already signed the male lead. Straight Outta Compton‘s Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre) is up for the task of playing Bauer’s predecessor and military hero, Eric Carter.
This morning, Variety shed some more light on the cast. Miranda Otto will be taking the lead role. Variety wrote that she will be playing Rebecca Ingram. “the blazing smart former head of CTU. Now married to Senator John Donovan (who has not yet been cast), Rebecca is struggling with second thoughts about having left the counter-terrorism agency.
Now don’t get too excited Wilmington, I’ve heard that they have scouted the Charlotte area and are looking for big city locations. So, the Queen city will likely be their choice. Hopefully, we can get this info confirmed soon as production would begin in March (so I hear). So far, there is a pilot order. Let’s hope for a Charlotte shoot with a full season pick up!
Finally, there is another indie flick that will be shooting just South of Asheville head up by some producers from across the pond. I, unfortunately, don’t have much info on that one.
