Happy Snowy Wednesday Wilmywood! Man, it took me 1/2 hour to de-ice and defrost before I could leave my driveway this morning!  The roads are covered with ice, so you can’t see the lines in the road.  BE CAREFUL!

We’ve got so much news we are WAITING for…casting details, more features coming, but alas, we sit here until the time comes to deliver!  Argh!  Yeah, yeah, I know patience!  Well, here’s what we do know.

sh_johnNobleTwo casts members of Sleepy Hollow got an upgrade to series regulars! John Noble  and Lyndie Greenwood were promoted for the sophomore season. The Hollywood Reporter says, “Noble’s Sleepy Hollow promotion puts him back in business with Fox as a series regular, where he had previously starred in Fringe.  Meanwhile, Greenwood, who portrays Abbie Mills’ sister Jenny, appeared in the majority of the 13-episode run.”

So yeah, Lyndie was already playing the part, so I am glad both get the notoriety and pay raise! READ ARTICLE NOW

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/18/2013 Danny McBride, Rachelle LeFevre, Banshee, Sleepy Hollow and more

Happy Friday!  Yesterday on the blog, I gave you a blip from Danny McBride on Jimmy Kimmel.  Well, we got some more in.  Raise your hand if you were in the skating scene at Jellybeans!  Here’s Danny as he explains what happened, including the clip from the shoot that day!


OrlandoOn the Sleepy Hollow front, Some more details are coming out about Captain Irving!  According to E! Online, it looks like Orlando’s character has not only an ex-wife named Cynthia, but a teenage daughter named Mae.  We will meet the two ladies after the baseball break and you can count on seeing them in multiple episodes.   Regardless of their failed marriage, they seem to have a good relationship, however Cynthia is concerned about Irving’s relationship with his daughter. Expect to see them stick around for a few episodes.

The rain has put a major damper on Sleepy Hollow’s schedule and now they are working even more crazy hours than usual to catch up.  They head to Brunswick County, one location will be the Brunswick Town Museum in Winnabow.  Ichabod and Abbie continue shooting throughout the weekend as they will pull an all-nighter.  First at the 2nd St. parking deck, then at the NHC Courthouse on N. 3rd St.  Man, they are working INSANE hours!  Kudos to the cast and NC film crew for pulling this off!

The North Carolina shot Banshee‘s second season has a premiere date.  The 10-episode season will kick off Friday, January 10th at 10 PM. The Cinemax show nabbed a Special Visual Effects Emmy and shares a similar success story as Sleepy Hollow, picking up a second season just after the 3rd episode aired. It also gave Cinemax the largest audience ever for an original series finale. Cast members include Ivana Milicevic, Ulrich Thomsen, Frankie Faison, Rus Blackwell, Gordon Hopewell, Ryann Shane, Ben Cross and Anthony Ruivivar.  Good news!  They will all be back in January!

Today is the first day of production for The Squeeze.  They have a few company moves, kicking off the day in downtown Burgaw.  They then head to the railroad bridge in Castle Hayne and finish the day at the 6th St Bridge near downtown Wilmington.  Yeah, this is not your typical golf movie.

The UNCW Film Studies group is shooting a flick called “Late Friendship”  they will also be downtown Saturday afternoon on the 200 block of N. Front St. in the Vance Alleyway.

Under the Dome’s Rachelle LeFevre wants you to save your wallet and the planet with her, “Don’t be an Idler” campaign.

Success continues for Under the Dome as CBS Studios International announced yesterday afternoon an exclusive multi-year licensing deal in Germany. According to the press release,  they will “stream the ground-breaking series UNDER THE DOME on the Watchever subscription video on demand service (SVOD) service starting in January 2014. The agreement will cover seasons one and two of the show, and will run after its initial presentation by the ProSiebensat.1 Group, where it has recently completed its first season and generated top ratings.”

Melissa-McCarthy-ElleOur Tammy star Melissa McCarthy appears on the cover for Elle‘s Women in Hollywood issue — and critics are slamming the magazine for covering up the full-figured actress’s body.

While her fellow cover models Reese WitherspoonShailene Woodleyand Marion Cotillard showed plenty of skin, Melissa sported an oversized coat. Several websites blasted Elle for the cover-up. Slate called her the magazine’s “token plus-size cover girl,” whose coat is “so huge…she could hide her Mike and Molly co-star Billy Gardel underneath. Perhaps photographer Thomas Whiteside only knows how to photograph the usual stick insect models, because he clearly has no clue how to highlight McCarthy’s curves.”

Elle responded to the backlash in a statement, saying, “On all of our shoots, our stylists work with the stars to choose pieces they feel good in, and this is no different: Melissa loved this look, and is gorgeous on our cover. We are thrilled to honor her as one of our Women in Hollywood this year.”   What do you think?  Post your comments below!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/16/2013 Seinfeld writer brings Pilot to Wilmywood, Under the Dome, The Squeeze and More

chrismcdonaldBREAKING: According to WWAY, Christopher McDonald who is starring in The Squeeze was arrested for drunk driving this morning in downtown Wilmington.  Well, that gives a whole new meaning to Shooter McGavin, doesn’t it?  (Sorry bad joke that had to be said).  Lesson learned though to all cast and crew who come to Wilmington to film.  Wilmington takes drinking and driving very serious in this town.  Always hire a driver!  READ STORY NOW Production begins Friday for The Squeeze at the 6th St. Bridge!

Another TV Pilot is underway in Wilmywood. Kaufmann Media Group brings Do Not Resuscitate to their Wilmington facility Post 1200 across from EUE/Screen Gems. The show has been co-created with a veteran Seinfeld writer and are in search of local talent. They have already been through their first round of auditions, but I don’t think they are over.  I will keep you posted on that front. The Emmy nominated principals of KMG have a 20 year history in Hollywood. Their Wilmington location (Post 1200), open just over a year, has touched almost every local production since expanding to North Carolina. KMG continues to direct Los Angeles business toward the NC market in support of the local film community.

DontknowYetWilmington shot Don’t Know Yet will premiere at the NYC Independent Film Festival tomorrow. The stars James Kyson (Heroes) and Lisa Goldstein (One Tree Hill).  UNCW professor,Terry Linehan, wrote and directed the feature and he calls it  “a love letter to the state of North Carolina.”  You will also see local actors David Andrews, Bill Ladd and Jane McNeill Balter.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMINGTON 07/26/2013 – UTD Season 2, Danny McBride on fire! Plus, cool set construction!

Hallmark is having super fun set!   Christmas in Conway, that begins shooting next week, is constructing a 50 ft. Ferris wheel.  It will be  erected at a home on Forest Hills Drive.  I also heard there will be some cool stunts utilizing the mechanical beast as well.

The Eastbound and Down folks are shooting at Maides Park, on Manly Ave today.  It looks at though Danny and Jody have been very busy this year.  Earlier this week,  I reported that the writing duo have written Loomis Fargo which is shooting in North Carolina later this year.  But that’s not the only thing happening with these talented guys. Danny McBride and Jody Hill are working on a new  1/2 hour comedy revolving around high school, While at the Television Critics Association Press Tour in  Beverly Hills yesterday, Michael Lombardo, president, HBO  programming, said,  “They’re  taking a look at high school life — its a really great, funny,  quintessentially Danny and Jody idea.”

Don’t forget you can vote once a day to bring an early screening of Sleepy Hollow to Wilmington.  We could use about 100 votes today to stay ahead of the game and ensure a top3 spot.  So get on it NOW and vote!

If you missed it back in June, Dean Norris will be on a repeat of Jimmy Kimmel tonight.  He will also be on ABC’s The View this Wednesday.

Now, onto the Rumor Mill!  Under the Dome is wrapping by this coming Wednesday.  And no official word has been flung to the press as of yet about Season two, but we all know, including the media the a second season is inevitable.  Well, I can tell you that yes there will be a season two and they are looking at starting back up in October.

I also heard that rumors were floating about there being 16 episodes this time around.  Even though they will continue shooting the final episode of season one until this coming Wednesday, their wrap party is tomorrow night downtown.  I bet the big announcement to the cast and crew will happen there!  The UTD folks will be in Burgaw this afternoon and overnight until sunrise!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 06/20/2013 Sleepy Hollow, Under the Dome, Eastbound and Down, Tammy

Tonight is the big night!  The HUGE Under the Dome Premiere in Wilmywood baby!  Thalian Hall will be starlit!  The ENTIRE cast is getting a pass to get out of filming to walk the red carpet and attend the event!!  That includes producers and writers too!  Jack Bender, Neal Baer, Brian K Vaughan and of course Stephen King!

ALL UNDER THE DOME TICKET WINNERS: CBS is insistent you must be in your seats by 6pm Thursday – OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR SEAT! Don’t be late!

With 4 days until the television premiere, the press is going nuts grabbing interviews left and right from the cast.  The Huffington Post continues it’s trend, this time they got a hold of Miss Rachelle LeFevre.  Here’s an excerpt:

What can you preview about her relationship with Barbie (Mike Vogel), since it seems like their paths cross fairly early on?
Well, I think they gravitate towards each other initially because neither of them is from there. Both of them are outsiders — him more than her — but certainly, that’s something they have in common immediately. Energetically, it kind of differentiates them. Everyone else, they’ve all lived together, grown up together. They’re going to stay there. Neither Barbie nor I feel that way about this place. So we’re unique in that nobody wants to be trapped, but they’re at least trapped at home and we’re not. And so that gives us something immediately in common … There is a strong chemistry there and a strong curiosity about one another, you know, “Who are you and why are you here?”

Rachelle isn’t the only one getting some love.  Dean Norris was awesome as usual on Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday night.  Did you see it?  Got the links for you!  Dean Norris on Jimmy Kimmel Live

MsPenny_tweetYesterday I told you about the flames and explosions that were taking place on the set of Tammy.  Well, Miss Penny Lane tweeted a photo of what went down.  Today Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, Mark Duplass and Sandra Oh head to LA baby!  Leland that is.  They are off the the Leland House off Lincoln Rd.

Eastbound and Down will be at two locations today.  Just off N. Kerr Ave and at Market/Cardinal at Stevenson Direct.  I caught up with the incredibly talented actor, Cullen Moss, after he did a stint this week on EBD, and did multiple scenes with Danny McBride.

Still from "The Heroes of Arvine Place"

Still from “The Heroes of Arvine Place”

He’s going to be in the first episode of season 4, playing the general manager of a business, who has an antagonistic relationship with Kenny Powers.  “This will be my only episode, as far as I know, Cullen said.  “I had so much damn fun! We did the scenes as scripted, and then were given chances to use alternate lines and go off on lengthy improvised tangents. That kind of spontaneously creative atmosphere that they’re able to provide is invaluable. In addition to the actors being given that freedom, the writers and the director (Jody Hill) are there, fine-tuning and tweaking the dialogue every moment. It was a completely creative, vitalizing, and affirming experience. I’m hoping they’ll find a way to get me back in the mix later in the season.”

Pre-Production is going swimmingly for Sleepy Hollow and they are still accepting resumes for crew positions.  There are just a handful of positions available, i.e. Set PA, Art PA, and possible assistant to the director.  I am sure there are a few more, so go for it!  BUT be prepared, I would highly recommend to apply ONLY if you are a night owl.  I’ve heard there will be a lot of overnights shoots of this series.   Get your resumes in: sleepyhollowseason1@gmail.com.  As far as extras casting goes, there is speculation, but there is no official word on who has signed on the dotted line for that position.  I will be able to reveal that to you in the next 2 weeks.  Production begins in late July!  Bring it!

Check out the latest promo for Sleepy Hollow that came out this week!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 04/02/2013

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD

LISTEN TO PODCAST

Okay gotta start with some exciting news!  Bolden! is coming back to Wilmington to shoot additional scenes in July!  It’s the film that never ends!  But we are so grateful to these guys.  Why?  Many reasons.  First, they spent over $120 MILLION locally, making it one of the most expensive independent films ever made.  Second, Bolden! was shooting here when we really needed commerce to flow.  They helped keep lumber and paint stores afloat after the housing bubble burst when they originally filmed here the first time!  Wilmington is so grateful for this production.  This will be the third time Bolden! will set up offices in Wilmington.

On late night TV, check out our hot actors from the past and present.

On Jimmy Kimmel tonight, Revolution fans will be staying up late to watch Giancarlo Esposito.  And we will go back in time and reminisce about those Dawson’s Creek days as Chelsea Lately has Busy Philipps.  Okay so she’s moved on to Cougar Town, but hey, we knew her when…

Now let’s get back Under the Dome.  The rain washed out yesterday’s shoot, so cast and crew head back to Wallace Park and Chestnut St.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am.  Post your comments, thoughts, suggestions and Thai recipes below! Until then, that’s a wrap!
