SYNOPSIS: When a teenage boy goes missing in a small town already devastated by a fatal mining accident, three strangers find themselves drawn together in a tangle of secrets, lies, and the collective grief of the community. Reeling from the disappearance of her son, Diane (Elizabeth Banks) finds herself drifting away from her husband (Josh Lucas), a mining company executive whose role in the accident has made her family the prime target for the town’s anger. When she forms a dangerous bond with the sole survivor of the disaster (Boyd Holbrook), truths will be uncovered that threaten to tear apart the few remaining threads holding the town together in this intense drama from writer-director Sara Colangelo.

Who’s on TV today?

It’s a double Wilmywood Wow on David Letterman! We get to see not only Melissa McCarthy but our Domie Rachelle Lefevre as well!

Meanwhile some more Tammy love will be on Kelly & Michael as Susan Sarandon joins that crazy duo. I wonder if Miss Penny (Susan’s pup) will be there in style?

So, how did Melissa rise to the top as the most fabulous leading lady?

The wait is finally over, Wilmywood! Get ready to see TAMMY one day early! Almost 3000 folks from Wilmington worked hard on this movie, and we think you deserve to catch it BEFORE the release date!

Join us at Regal Cinemas in Mayfaire Town Center on Tuesday July 1st at 8pm! Come early as we will have Tammy’s 1986 Car and jet ski on display in front of Regal Cinemas – Yes the vehicles used in the movie!
We got tickets to give away and just maybe some special prizes too! Listen to Sunny 104.5 for all the details! See you there!! CLICK HERE FOR FB INVITE!


MaxEhrichNow, back to Under the Dome. Happy birthday day to two Domies today! First up is Max Ehrich who is new to the show,. He plays Hunter, the boy who gets into the Dome. Also, big Robo-birthday wishes to Peter Weller who was just here directing episode 10 of Under the Dome.

comics-boom-studios-sleepy-hollowWithout warning or further details, Boom! Studios sent out this Sleepy Hollow comic cover and it’s gone totally viral in the Twittersphere!  Talk about a tease coming out of nowhere! BOOM! has already produced comic adaptations for Planet of the Apes, Die Hard and 28 Days Later via licensing agreement with 20th Century Fox, so why not, right? I’d buy it!

In case you didn’t believe me months ago, Nicholas Sparks was here, but not for his movie he is currently shooting, The Longest Ride. Nope, it’s the one they are shooting in September, The Choice. He went scouting with his producing buddies. Sure hope he stopped by The Longest Ride set at least to say, “Yo, what’s up? Thanks for making my book into a movie again Wilmington!”

June 20, 2013 – Wilmington Mayor Billy Saffo hands Stephen King a key to the city during the Under The Dome Red Carpet Premiere

The red carpet came alive last night as about 90 % of the cast came out and celebrated with the locals at the Under The Dome Red Carpet Premiere.  We have tons of video footage and photos.  As soon as I can put it all together I will be releasing it piece by piece starting today.  A HUGE thank you to C-G Productions (CG’s Website,   Twitter and Facebook) and David Pasqua for shooting the event!  They were amazing!  Check out all the photos from the event:

Our handsome Mayor Billy Saffo greeted the crowd and read the proclamation, honored Stephen King with a key to the city, then  declared June 24th Dome Day!  The Under the Dome folks are filming at Waterford in Leland, then move to stage for the rest of the night.

MsPennyDirectorToday is the last day on Tammy 😦  I will miss that cast big time!  But I have a feeling Miss Penny (Susan Sarandon’s angel) will miss Wilmington even more.  For their last hoorah, they will be on Blue Clay Road (between N. Kerr & N. College Rd.) and also 2610 N. 23rd Street.  Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon and the gang will be on set.  And finally, Mullet Alert: Eastbound and Down will be shooting on 21st and Chestnut today.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 06/11/2013 – UTD, EBD, Tammy and More

Today kicks off the one of many days for one of the HUGE scenes for Tammy. Kathy Bates hosts the big 4th of July lesbian bash!  They will be shooting off Masonboro Loop Rd. near the sound.  Speaking of sound, tonight their will be a fire works test somewhere between 8pm-11pm, so don’t be alarmed but I wouldn’t bother going to bed early if you live nearby.  Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass join Ms. Bates with 100s of extras on hand!

The title of this movie is exactly what the creators of the movie poster for the Sandra Bullock/Melissa McCarthy movie are getting.  Doing a horrible Photoshop job while taking (what the Hollywood Reporter says) 30 lbs off of Melissa is not exactly what critics and the public enjoy.  Read the full article.

Eastbound and Down is rolling this week.  I don’t see any locations for star-gazing today, but tomorrow’s blog will give you lots of chances to catch Danny McBride aka Kenny Powers around town.  Now is the time to be on the look out for Will Farrell as he is the producer for both EBD and Tammy.  Hit me up if you see him!

Ms. Penny Lane

BartenderSheilaI decided it would be a good thing for me to live the life of an extra for the next two days.  Really dive into why people love working background so much. I did get to meet Susan Sarandon and her pretty puppy Ms. Penny while getting my wardrobe for the day.  Let me first tell you yesterday was a loooong day! I did the Sunny Morning Show, then went straight to the set of Tammy at the Blue Post downtown.  And waited.  And waited.  And waited.  Still waiting.  The blood in my veins began to congeal.  Waited some more.  Convos in the room spread through the echoing banquet room like white noise, endangering my mind to slip into a deep coma.  “BARTENDER?”  What?  What was that?  Oh, me, that’s me!  Oh, joy to move the limbs!  Like melted butter down a hungry man’s throat at Red Lobster, the blood started coursing once again!  I am ready…

To wait once again.  What the – !  What just happened?  It’s like waiting in line for two hours to ride The Zephyr, and the damn teenager who runs the ride decides it’s time for a long smoke break just as you make it to the front of the line.  :::::SIGH :::::

FINALLY – we make it to set!  All the lights, all the cameras, all the action!  Now wer’re havin’ fun.  Of course, you can’t talk, so I like to entertain myself.  I find that pantomiming really dirty things brings a smile to my face, and any lip reading guys within 10 feet of me. Okay, that part wasn’t true, but I wanted too!  Can I tell you just how damn funny Melissa McCarthy is!  The comedic timing is brilliant and her ad-libs are better than the script (that she co-wrote).

Zach Hanner

Zach Hanner

My friend Zach Hanner got to bounce quite a few lines with her in this scene, great to watch a local perform with the big Hollywood players.  But the most endearing experience was when Charles Calhoun was at the bar, who I was serving in the scene.  His first position was a direct camera shot.  Then he was asked to move so only his back was in the camera’s eye.

 I think Melissa could tell that he was bummed.  She walked over, introduced herself, then explained the reason she moved him.  It was because she really liked his shirt.  But she didn’t stop there.  She actually made sure that they had a moment on camera together for a beat before she walked past the bar.  Wow!  It was so touching.  Humanity at its finest and a total class act.  I am really loving this woman!  So, yeah I am about to pass out.  I will have to tell you more stories tomorrow!  The Tammy crew is back at the Blue Post today!

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:  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!
