WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 06/18/2013

LISTEN TO PODCAST

So I would like to personally thank Angie at CBS up in New York.  Not only is she making this incredible Under the Dome Red Carpet Premiere happen in Wilmington, but she also lined up interviews with the film commission here in Wilmington, in Southport and beyond to do stories with all the news outlets coming out for this event.  The interviews will involve the economic impact of filming in this area.  THIS IS HUGE!  This is exactly what those politicians that are against the film incentives need to hear, and those who live in those counties these representatives live in!  News crews are coming in from all over the region: Greenville, Greensboro, Raleigh, Myrtle Beach, Charlotte and they will be representing the bigger markets with their reporting reaching into Georgia, Florida, Maryland and beyond.

The Under the Dome  Red Carpet event is just two days away, the Worldwide television premiere in just 6!  And the closer we get, the more we uncover about the actors and their characters they play.  Mike Vogel talks about his anti-hero turned hero character “Barbie” in this Huffington Post article which came out yesterday. Here’s an excerpt.

“Barbie is a great guy. I love him. He’s a former Special Forces operator. He’s gotten out of the military and since then, he’s done a bunch of odd jobs, trying to find his spot and where he fits in.

He finds himself basically collecting debts for a bookie and nine times out of 10, it’s a nonviolent ordeal. He’s not a heavy that’s going around thumping on people, breaking kneecaps, [saying,] “Pay up. Pay up.” Normally, everyone’s willing. But he finds himself in some situations where he has to defend himself, which is sort of the catalyst which brings him into this town and he happens to find himself here when this event happens.

So he finds himself stuck in a position of having had to defend himself after a rather nefarious deed and stuck in a small town where word travels fast and everyone knows everyone. There’s a lot of stuff swirling in the first couple episodes, and what I like about the show is, judging by the opening of the show, someone might say, “Oh, Barbie, bad guy — Big Jim [played by Dean Norris], good guy.” But that’s not at all the case. And I enjoy that it takes time for everything to unravel here and that everything that you see is not what you’re getting.”

Barbie’s love interest Julia aka Rachelle LeFevre was on Craig Ferguson last night.  Here’s a link to last night’s interview.  Great interview!  But I have to say one of my favorite parts was when they showed a clip from the pilot, and who was there in the scene with Rachelle LeFevre and Mike Vogel?  Our local boy, Mike Rosander!  Woo Hoo!  Great job Mike!  The Domies will be back on Chestnut St today, then they will head back to the lot.

If any of the past shows speak of  Stephen King’s future, music will play a big role in this Summer series.  If you remember the soundtrack to Maximum Overdrive that was shot here in 1986, it was doused in AC/DC’.  “Who Made Who” is the official soundtrack (minus Roger Miller’s ‘King of the Road’), a film that has since become a cult classic .  He’s quite a fan of  rock and Americana.  I found an article that listed King’s Ultimate playlist from 2009.  So, of course it makes perfect sense that we have, Under the Dome Radio.

And finally, speaking of audio, there is much buzz about this!  Originally the UTD pilot contained sound bytes from President Obama in an Emergency Address to the nation about the situation with Chester’s Mill, but they decided to cut it.  Why? The audio they used came from remarks the President made in a speech about Hurricane Sandy.  According to the statement issued by CBS: “The scene cleared broadcast standards, but both Amblin TV and CBS had concerns about using actual audio in this specific fictional context.”  I agree. It’s a sensitive issue, and just like the did with Mike & Molly during the tornado tragedy, they did the right thing.

Your next Mullet sighting will be on Market Street.  Danny McBride and the crew of Eastbound and Down are shooting at Neuwirth  Auto Center all day today.  Here’s a clip from last week w/ TMZ asking Danny about his corn rows of the past.

This will be the last day for Tammy at the GORGEOUS house on Cabbage Inlet during the big 4th of July Bash.  On set today is Sandra Oh, Susan Sarandon, Melissa McCarthy

PERFECT SUMMER PROMOThe Love Letter shooting at Bicentennial Park again today just off 5th St.  You’ll see Keshia Knight Pulliam, Lil Romeo and Jackee today!  Gary Wheeler is not only directing this flick but is releasing another with his Swirl pals!  The Perfect Summer premieres Saturday, July 13th on the UP Network.  Wanna see a clip?  Look how adorable Sydney Penny is!  But wait a second.  Weren’t they just here filming like a few days ago?  Man, they move fast!  Great job Swirl Films!

According to Box Office MoJo, ‘Iron Man 3‘ passed $1.2 billion this weekend, making it the #5 highest gross movie worldwide!

Planter’s Peanuts is shooting a commercial Thursday at the Wilmington Convention Center.  Mr. Peanut is giving a motivational speech, meanwhile a group is playing flag football outside in the grass.
