RUMORS FROM THE LOT. As The Choice gears up for Monday’s first official production day, I am hearing some REALLY COOL RUMORS for their casting “choices.”
First, we already know that Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer have the lead roles, and Tom Wilkinson will play Dr. Shep. But now more rumors about the other roles that need to be filled. I am hearing 3 names that are up for the gig: Maggie Grace (Taken), the gorgeous Tom Welling (Clark Kent- Smallville) and Joe Gallison (Days of Our Lives). Joe, to us, however is a local! We love him! So let’s hope the rumors are true!
I also wanna give a HUGE loving shoutout to the Grip crew on their first day of prep! Love you guys! It’s a gorgeous day to be working in Wilmywood!

Stephen Collins who most know from the television show 7th Heaven, and many here know him as Dr. Gene Porter from Revolution has been accused of sexually
abusing three underage girls. According to CNN’s NewDay, in the divorce documents filed by his estranged second wife, Faye Grant, Collins admitted to her that he molested them more than a decade earlier. Two of the girls lived in New York, one in Los Angeles, according to the divorce papers. Police in New York are aware of child molestation allegations by a former relative against Collins, but due to the statute of limitations, he cannot face charges in that case. In New York, a person has five years from their 18th birthday to make an accusation of sexual abuse to authorities. That time has passed.
