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!
On 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.”
Our 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 Witherspoon, Shailene 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!
