 Bill-Cosby1Bill Cosby‘s “Far From Finished Tour” at Odell Williamson Auditorium is sold out for the 7pm show, BUT are now on sale for a 3:30pm matinee on April 6th! Tickets prices $67 & $77 (Plus applicable service fees and NC sales tax) GET TICKETS NOW.  Still to this day, his comedy show Himself is my all time favorite.   And I think so many who grew up in the 80s look to The Cosby Show for a little parenting school.  So brilliant!

sarahjones2More articles are coming out about camera assistant, Sarah Jones.  The Hollywood Reporter wrote a few articles, but a warning, some are absolutely heartbreaking.

1) Producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan also found a way to help the Academy acknowledge Sarah Jones, the camera operator whose death has raised the issue of set safety, in the broadcast, which was greeted with an uptick in ratings. READ NOW

2) The parents of the young camera assistant killed in the train accident on the Georgia set of “Midnight Rider,” as well as an injured hairstylist who survived it, reveal harrowing and graphic new details. “I saw my life, my kids, my family, all of it before me,” says the hairstylist. “I was sure I was going to die.” READ NOW

SarahSlate2The folks at pledgetosarah.org are asking you to Take the Pledge! This is not about crews, or cast, or production, or us, or them,” it states.  “It’s about everyone on a production. Be safe and be aware. No exceptions. Safety is the responsibility we accept every time we step on a set and it only works if we all have each other’s backs – because no one wants to have to explain to a friend’s loved one why they didn’t speak up.”  TAKE THE PLEDGE NOW

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 02/06/2014 – GOOD LAWD! Max Steel, Secrets Lies, Under the Dome, Steven Fiore and more!

Wow!  Such an amazing week for BREAKING casting news. Yep, last week was the quiet before the storm.  I have blogged all damn day and night monitoring all the media outlets and doing some major snooping around with my own sources.  So, basically, I haven’t slept in days!  I have GOT to hire some staff!  Okay, so, let’s review what we have so far and put it together in one blog. Damn, I need a nap!

SecretsLies_CastABC’s SECRETS AND LIES  – Ryan Phillippe signed the dotted line yesterday and now he is a done deal.  Just after that announcement came one that made us go Hmmmm.  Natalie Martinez is playing leap frog with the networks. Martinez will play the character Jess, the child’s devastated mother.  Secrets & Lies centers on a house painter and family man (Phillippe) who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a young boy when he finds the body while out on a morning run. He must find the real murderer to clear his name and save his marriage, his reputation and any chance of having a normal family life again. If you remember EP Neal Baer said earlier last month, that two of our favorite characters on Under the Dome won’t live to see episode two. Now with that being said, if Natalie is joining the cast of ABC’s Secrets & Lies, could “Linda” be the one of the two that won’t live to see another episode?? Hmmmmm….  WAITING ON CASTING CHOICES FOR  16-year-old Natalie, 12-year-old Abby, Ben’s wife, Christy.

UTD_CASTCBS’S UNDER THE DOME SEASON 2 – The 18-year-old newbie actress Grace Victoria Cox  will recur as the mysterious and beautiful Melanie, who catches the eye of Joe (Colin Ford). Eddie Cahill CSI: New York has been cast as Big Jim’s brother in law, Sam, who is the “crazy drunk” who lives in the woods!   Also, Karla Crome (Misfits) joins the enclosed gang!  Crome will play Rebecca, the beautiful school teacher who we’ve been talking about.

MAXSTEEL_CASTMATTEL’S MAX STEEL – Open Road will release domestically in 2015. Atlanta boy, Ben Winchell will take on the lead role of Max McGrath.  He’s best known for his roles in Lifetime’s Pregnancy Pact, as well as Dixon in season 3 of A.N.T. Farm (Disney) and Eric in season 2 of Necessary Roughness (TNT). Ana Villafane will play Max’s love interest, Sydney Gardner.  She’s an up-and-coming Latina actress and singer from Miami, Florida.  Villafane is best known for her starring role in Anchor Bay’s 2012 release Hiding playing a protected witness relocated from New York City to Montana.  Also, in this flick was Jeremy Sumpter who we just had here working on The Squeeze.

Max-SteelVariety’s Dave McNary wrote an article yesterday morning on the unveiling of Max Steel which will happen tomorrow in Europe.  He opens with:

 “The Berlin festival may not unspool on a sunny beach, but the European Film Market, which runs alongside the fest, is becoming much more like Cannes and the American Film Market — at least when it comes to serving as a launching pad for major movies.” 

So get ready for Max Steel which will make an appearance at the EFM (European Film Market) and Mattel and Dolphin Films will unveil more details about the live-action adaptation.  So, that means we can look forward to more details this week!

It’s official, our North Carolina American Idol runner-up who has  six albums under his belt, Clay Aiken, announced this morning that he will indeed run for the Democratic nomination in the 2nd Congressional District.  You know what question we want answered!  Here’s his pitch.
