THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/29/2014 SH Cast Members get an Upgrade, Who’s on TV Tonight and more.

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

SHFALLWow! (pause) Wow!  Yeah, it’s been a long time since a season finale left me saying so very few words.  Maybe I should leave that up to the experts!

“Sleepy Hollow just threw down one of the best finales in recent TV history, bringing its epic freshman season to a totally satisfying and bats-it crazy end.”  ~Watch w/ Kristin, E! Online

I LOVE how the media is totally freaking out saying how much they LOVED IT!  Hell, everyone is talking about it! So, another HUGE congrats to the Producers, Directors, the cast and the FABULOUS Wilmington, NC Film Crew for such an amazing job.  You REALLY brought the story to life in an EPIC way~SH_FINALETALK

I cannot wait until the ratings come out later today.  I will be posting them in a separate blog.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/11/2013 Sleepy Hollow, Under the Dome and More

The trailer for the Wilmywood shot A Short History of Decay is up. The story is based on the director Michael Maren’s mother who had a major battle with Alzheimer’s. The movie which stars Linda Lavin premiere’s this weekend at the Hamptons International Film Festival.

Sleepy-Hollow-TitleCongrats to Sleepy Hollow as it premiered in the UK this week, giving Universal TV its best ratings since 2005! The weather has really put a damper in a consistent shoot schedule for the Sleepyheads. They are shooting on the back lot and then they head to Adam’s Antiques on Castle St. where our two hero’s walk into the store and investigate a break in. Yeah, I said head 🙂 The Brunswick county shoot has been pushed until next week.

As if they weren’t busy enough, they also HEAD to the New York Comic Con. Their panel is is Sunday afternoon. An autograph session will follow the Q&A.

REMINDER: Also this Sunday is The Walking Dead Viewing Party and Costume Contest at Theatre Now

The confusion has ended in regards to Something’s in the Dark, a horror film that is is shooting here in Wilmywood Tuesday and are filming in Raleigh tonight. I have no idea who they are and I cannot give you any details, except they exist?? I think. Extras Casting:  https://www.facebook.com/atlanticcastingcompany

alexcolinAlexander Koch joined Colin Ford at People Magazine’s Ones To Watch Party held at Hinoki & The Bird Wednesday night in Los Angeles. Alex recently spoke with Elle Magazine about Season 2 of Under the Dome and what we should expect.

“It’s going to be compelling and very different. We’re going to see the world as it’s changed, what this new empire that Jim’s created has become.” ~Alexander Koch

Under the Dome will reopen offices in January and begin principal photog in February.

Director Terry Jastrow

Some more info is out about The Squeeze.  Their schedule is gonna be fast paced as it looks as though they are only giving 3 weeks for prep, and then production here in Wilmywood will last for three weeks as well.  They then head to Las Vegas to complete the film.  Terry Jastrow is the writer and director.  We also just learned he is one of the producers as well.

Sarah Crandall of WECT found an awesome top 10 list!  Wilmywood has been deemed the number one star-studded city on Rent.com’s list of the top 10 cities where you’re most likely to run into a celebrity, other than Los Angeles and New York. Boston and Austin take 2nd and 3rd.  Check out her article NOWroko

One of those celeb spotting locations is Roko Italian Cuisine in Mayfaire. The Sleepy Hollow Cast has this restaurant on their “must-dine” list.  Spotted there over the past couple weeks is Tom Mison, Nikki Beharie and Nick Gonzales.
