WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 06/20/2013 Sleepy Hollow, Under the Dome, Eastbound and Down, Tammy

Tonight is the big night!  The HUGE Under the Dome Premiere in Wilmywood baby!  Thalian Hall will be starlit!  The ENTIRE cast is getting a pass to get out of filming to walk the red carpet and attend the event!!  That includes producers and writers too!  Jack Bender, Neal Baer, Brian K Vaughan and of course Stephen King!

ALL UNDER THE DOME TICKET WINNERS: CBS is insistent you must be in your seats by 6pm Thursday – OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR SEAT! Don’t be late!

With 4 days until the television premiere, the press is going nuts grabbing interviews left and right from the cast.  The Huffington Post continues it’s trend, this time they got a hold of Miss Rachelle LeFevre.  Here’s an excerpt:

What can you preview about her relationship with Barbie (Mike Vogel), since it seems like their paths cross fairly early on?
Well, I think they gravitate towards each other initially because neither of them is from there. Both of them are outsiders — him more than her — but certainly, that’s something they have in common immediately. Energetically, it kind of differentiates them. Everyone else, they’ve all lived together, grown up together. They’re going to stay there. Neither Barbie nor I feel that way about this place. So we’re unique in that nobody wants to be trapped, but they’re at least trapped at home and we’re not. And so that gives us something immediately in common … There is a strong chemistry there and a strong curiosity about one another, you know, “Who are you and why are you here?”


Rachelle isn’t the only one getting some love.  Dean Norris was awesome as usual on Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday night.  Did you see it?  Got the links for you!  Dean Norris on Jimmy Kimmel Live

MsPenny_tweetYesterday I told you about the flames and explosions that were taking place on the set of Tammy.  Well, Miss Penny Lane tweeted a photo of what went down.  Today Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, Mark Duplass and Sandra Oh head to LA baby!  Leland that is.  They are off the the Leland House off Lincoln Rd.

Eastbound and Down will be at two locations today.  Just off N. Kerr Ave and at Market/Cardinal at Stevenson Direct.  I caught up with the incredibly talented actor, Cullen Moss, after he did a stint this week on EBD, and did multiple scenes with Danny McBride.

He’s going to be in the first episode of season 4, playing the general manager of a business, who has an antagonistic relationship with Kenny Powers.  “This will be my only episode, as far as I know, Cullen said.  “I had so much damn fun! We did the scenes as scripted, and then were given chances to use alternate lines and go off on lengthy improvised tangents. That kind of spontaneously creative atmosphere that they’re able to provide is invaluable. In addition to the actors being given that freedom, the writers and the director (Jody Hill) are there, fine-tuning and tweaking the dialogue every moment. It was a completely creative, vitalizing, and affirming experience. I’m hoping they’ll find a way to get me back in the mix later in the season.”

Pre-Production is going swimmingly for Sleepy Hollow and they are still accepting resumes for crew positions.  There are just a handful of positions available, i.e. Set PA, Art PA, and possible assistant to the director.  I am sure there are a few more, so go for it!  BUT be prepared, I would highly recommend to apply ONLY if you are a night owl.  I’ve heard there will be a lot of overnights shoots of this series.   Get your resumes in: sleepyhollowseason1@gmail.com.  As far as extras casting goes, there is speculation, but there is no official word on who has signed on the dotted line for that position.  I will be able to reveal that to you in the next 2 weeks.  Production begins in late July!  Bring it!

Check out the latest promo for Sleepy Hollow that came out this week!

Wilmywood Film Peep of the Day

tammy_wilmywoodHappy Monday to you!  Looks like everyone is out of town today.  Tammy will be back at The Grille on Main St. in Shallotte.  We will see Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Mark Duplass, Gary Cole and a nice surprise as our own. Michelle Li from WECT/WSFX was typecasted and will have a nice lil part in the flick as a news reporter.  There should be some fun action in this scene today!  They still have over 15 days of shooting left, so here is a casting reminder from Extras Casting: “If you have ALREADY SUBMITTED and have not heard from us AT ALL yet, please resubmit your info/photo to: tammyextras@gmail.com with the subject title, “RE-SUBMISSION” – Thank you.” Over the weekend, Mark Duplass went to the beach, then tore it up on the dance floor! Haha!  Awesome!

DJRuckusThe folks Under the Dome also had a good time this weekend in Wilmywood. Rachelle Lefevre went shopping on Castle street in the Antique District.  Natalie Martinez was hanging out near Johnny’s Mercer’s Pier in Wrightsville Beach on Saturday.  Check out what she had to say about being Under the Dome!  On Sunday, Natalie was a very happy lady indeed when (major cutie-pie) DJ Ruckus came in for a visit.  Dean Norris recommended this article from TV Blends.  The big premiere is just 3 Mondays away!  They are filming again in Currie, NC today.

As we get closer to the start of Eastbound and Down (June 10th-ish) there are star sightings all over the place, even Danny Doppelgangers!  A friend of mine got a shot of this guy at the pool in the Porter’s Neck area where they just happened to be scouting at nearby residential locations for Season 4!  When she approached the man, and mentioned the striking likeness, he laughed and said, “Yeah, I get that a lot.”  Hey, the ladies LOVE the mullet!  It could work for him!

The star of NBC’s Surface, shot here in Wilmywood a few years back,  Lake Bell got hitched Saturday to Scott Campbell in New Orleans.  The show only lasted one season, but I have to say, I really enjoyed them being here.

A casting call is out for a new reality show, Dream Date.

Have you yet to find the love of your life? Do you feel like you’ve never been out of your county let alone on a plane to somewhere? Would you like to find your “Dream Date”?

We are casting a network show designed to pair you with your soul mate. This is “The Bachelorette” on steroids!!

If you or someone you know is interested, age 21 – 32, please email your full name, age, height, weight, contact phone and two photos. (one close up and a full body.)  Castingdreamdate@gmail.com

And finally, tonight is our last glimpse of Wilmington as the season finale of Revolution airs tonight at 10pm on NBC.  So, the most important question is:  Where’s the party at??  REVOLUTION SEASON FINALE PARTY! Tonight at The Cellar, downtown. Food, special Militia drinks, and more! Get there by 9pm for the fun!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!



Wilmywood Film Peep of the Day


Matt McHugh, actor/stand-in

Howdy!  It’s a short Wilmywood blog this morning.  Not too much going on.  I can start with Eastbound and Down.  They are still casting background as they gear up for Season 4.  Wanna play “extra”? Kim Stewart just posted this morning: “Okay everybody I am in need of some super pretty girls aged 21-30 for East Bound!! The director would like photo options by Tuesday so please spread the word if you know some hotties 🙂 Please submit you a CURRENT photograph, name, age, phone number & wardrobe sizes to kimmieNCasting@gmail.com with the subject line EBD Club Scene. THANKS!!!”  Production begins around June 10th.

NatalieMartinezUnder the Dome is back on N 15th Street then they will head to the lot to finish off a night shot.  Rachelle LeFevre and a few of the main kids will be on set.  Meanwhile Natalie Martinez is spending her morning at Wrightsville Beach running the loop.  Yesterday, NPR released an interview with the main man, Stephen King, however it revolves around his latest novel, Joyland.Check it out!   

tammy_wilmywoodThe Tammy crew is back in Burgaw today shooting at the Pender County Courthouse and on various streets today.  You will see the lovely ladies, Susan Sarandon and Melissa McCarthy on set.  On a side note, if you remember due to the Oklahoma tornado tragedy, Melissa’s Mike and Molly season finale got pushed back because it contained some tornado content which would have been in very poor taste.  So, CBS has now rescheduled the finale on a special night and time — it will now air tonight at 8:30 p.m. EST.  “Mike & Molly” was recently renewed for for a 22-episode Season 4.

 That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Until then, that’s a wrap!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 05/20/2013 – Eastbound and Down, Tammy, Under The Dome, Perfect Summer and More


Wilmywood’s Film Peeps of the Day!

Nate Panning & John Skoglund - Sound Department

Nate Panning & John Skoglund – Sound Department

It’s the last day of Swirl Films’ The Perfect Summer today.  They will be in Carolina Beach on Lake Park Blvd.  Everyone really enjoyed Eric Roberts being here for the past few weeks.  And just a little FYI, Eric has been a very busy man.  He’s is involved in over 42 projects due to come out this year and some in 2014, plus he is acting in 7 other projects that are currently in development.  Very busy man indeed!  Go here for updated picture gallery of The Perfect Summer


On a side note, I think it’s kinda cool and interesting that most of the premium cable channels are shooting in North Carolina.  Eastbound and Down, Season 4 begins next week, right here in Wilmington.  Outside of the Wilmington area, Cinemax’s Banshee continues in Mooresville, while Showtime’s Homeland is just about under way and is casting their stand-ins and photo doubles in the Charlotte area as well.

Iron Man 3 box office update: This weekend IM3 pulled in $35.2 million domestically.  The domestic total is $337 million.  Worldwide, it has cleared ONE BILLION, making it #9 on the list of all time worldwide box office gross.

The Tammy folks went down to Spring Lake Park in Boiling Springs Lake early this morning and will stay there tomorrow as well.  With 203 extras on hand and Melissa McCarthy on a Sea Doo, how can this not be a fun scene to shoot! The fabulous Susan Sarandon is on set today as well.  They are on a rain delay but expecting to shoot as some point.  Here’s a couple of pics from this morning:

553058_10152732374530117_498634129_nUnder The Dome will be shooting on Chestnut St.  this morning then they make their company move to the lot later in the day.  You can catch a glimpse of Rachelle LeFevre, Mike Vogel, Natalie Martinez, and Dean Norris if you are out that way.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 05/14/2013 – New Reality Show, Perfect Summer, Tammy, Under the Dome, Sleepy Hollow



Perfect_SummerAnother day in Wrightsville Beach for the cast and crew of The Perfect SummerJason Castro had a great first day as the laid back surf shop owner yesterday.  They will be back at it at the same location today, Aussie Island Surf Shop.  Looks like we will see Jason Castro,  Katie Garfield, JD Banks, Adam Horner and Justin Barnhill shooting.  I am gonna try to stop by the set today and get some scoop for ya!  Thanks to Gary Wheeler for the set pic!

A fun filled day for Tammy as well as they finally get off Nun St. and head to Castle Hayne.  We will be seeing just Melissa McCarthy today with about 8 extras on hand.  There will be a detour as  a 1-mile section of Blue Clay Road will be closed to traffic from Old Mill Road to Holly Road today.

Yesterday I posted the preview for Sleepy Hollow that was shot in the Charlotte area.  If you missed it, check it out now!

Super huge scene for Under the Dome as they are already rolling today at 5th and Castle.  Huge stunts too!  The scene involves a semi-truck crashing into a water tower.  This had the talented set construction folks super busy all week, building the faux water tower.  I was hoping for major explosions today, but I heard they are doing the visual fx in post (but maybe we will get lucky).  But it will still be exciting because not only is it a crazy fun stunt filled day, but it will also be star-studded as well.  Dean Norris, Rachelle LeFevre, Samantha Mathis, Natalie Martinez, Colin Ford – just about all the lead characters will be in this scene as well as a plethora of extras!  Where will be tons of coverage, so they will be shooting until the sun goes down.  This scene will affect traffic patterns as well so find an alternate route!

Doron Ofir Casting (the casting company for Jersey Shore), is casting a new reality show, American Proud – The Party is Down South.  They are searching for the proudest Southerners who are at least 21 years old that are ready to show the world they’re country strong! “If you like your chicken fried, and you’re full of American pride, we are looking for you!”  Local boy Mike Waggett is a recruiter for the company and is asking you to: “Git’er done and apply now!” Email a photo of yourself along with your contact info and tell him why you are “American Proud. ”

Fianlly, CONGRATS to Vanessa and Kim!  NCasting got the gig!  They will be casting Eastbound and Down Season 4.  Look for opportunities to work on the HBO show soon!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Until then, that’s a wrap!
