FOX’s ‘Shots Fired’ gets new Extras Casting Director.

Tona Dahlquist of Tona B Dahlquist Casting who is the Extras Casting Director for Dirty Dancing as well as FOX’s Shots Fired (starring Helen Hunt, Richard Dreyfuss and True Blood vet Stephen Moyer) posted yesterday that she was stepping down as ECD for the Fox show.

After serious thought and consideration, we have decided it is best for us, as well as production, for us not to continue on Shots Fired after Episode 1. We are letting everyone know Thursday will be our last day handling the extras. Don’t worry of feel bad, it was our choice. If we have you booked for Tuesday or Thursday, you remain booked and will receive your information from us as usual. Please know how very thankful we are to all of you for helping us out on this episode. You guys were FANTASTIC! We love you all and as always -stay tuned to the casting pages for our other casting needs. The series will continue filming until July in the Charlotte area. We wish it and all of the crew nothing but the best. The show will be a good show everyone. Please know my decision was personal and not based on any law passed or story line. Please continue to support the show if interested in filming. As I said, I wish nothing but the best for the show and all of the crew.

Well you know how many folks react to things, so it was a very smart on Tona’s part to add that her decision was personal and NOT based on any law passed or story line. She wants everyone to continue to support the show. – LOVE YOU Tona!

Well, 16 hours later, a new Extras Casting Director has been named – it’s yet another respected ECD we all know and love. Please congratulate Vanessa Neimeyer of NC Casting. She will be taking on the role effective immediately, so please refer to her Facebook page for all background acting opportunities in the Charlotte area.

I can tell you right now Vanessa will be looking for A LOT of teenagers for Thursday. So, if you are in the Charlotte, NC area, be on the lookout!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/21/2016: SIX, Good Behavior, FOX’s Shots Fired and more!

Morning peeps! Hope you had a great weekend! There were so many things to see and do this weekend.  I headed to Mayfaire to join the folks race for the cure with Susan G Komen. Great turnout!

Okay, now on to Wilmywood…first things first. Leo is NOT moving to Wilmington. I repeat Leonardo DiCaprio is NOT Buying Home in Wilmington. I can’t believe so many people actually fell for this one. If you missed this one Leonardo-DiCaprio-777x437over the weekend, THIS was posted just about everywhere via Facebook.  It only takes a moment to go to their ABOUT US section to know that “MBY News is a fantasy news site.  All news articles on mbynews.com are satire or pure fantasy.” So, now you know, sorry to disappoint.

While we may not have Leo, we do have the fabulous cast of SIX, that should make you feel a whole lot better 🙂 So where are these fabulous cast members?

History Channel’s Six will be shooting at the beach then on One Tree Hill Way today and TNT’s Good Behavior is filming at Carolina Fish Fry on Market St. as well as the 6th St Bridge.

Scooching over to Charlotte, great casting news for FOX’s Shots Fired!  Check out who is rounding out the cast! TV Line has reported Oscar winners Helen Hunt, Richard Dreyfuss and True Blood vet Stephen Moyer have joined the drama! READ MORE NOW
