Wilmywood Stars Celebrate This Weekend

By: April Vickery
Contributor for The Wilmywood Daily

Happy birthday this weekend to not one but TWO Wilmywood Stars!

James Van der BeekTomorrow, March 8, James Van Der Beek turns 37. You might remember him from a little show called, Dawson’s Creek. James played our beloved title character “Dawson Leery” and from 1998-2003, us lucky little Wilmingtonians had chances to catch James working on the show in and around the area. Dawson’s Creek utilized our local EUE/Screen Gems lot and crew, UNCW’s Randall Library and Alderman Hall, and many local businesses in Southport and Wilmington including the famously nicknamed “Dawson’s Bridge.” After Dawson ended, James returned to Wilmywood for a part on the show One Tree Hill. He played the director who wanted to turn Lucas’ novel into a movie.

These days James is a husband, daddy and apparently non-aging meme sensation with his silly site, jamesvandermeme.tumblr.comwhere he shares his “Vanderfeelings” in .gif form with the world. Follow James on Twitter (@Vanderjames) and help us in Wilmywood wish him a happy birthday.

freddie-prinze-jr-freddie-prinze-jr-5425601-1024-768Feliz Cumpleanos to latino heartbreaker, Freddie Prinze Jr.! Not only does he share the title of 50 Most Beautiful People in The World with Mr. Van Der Beek, but he apparently can’t get enough of Wilmywood either!

Freddie filmed in and around the areas of Southport and Burgaw for the horror flick, I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) with another actor who has recently returned for ABC‘s Secrets and Lies, Ryan Phillipe. This was also the set that Freddie met his beautiful wife, Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Freddie then returned to Wilmywood 4 years later for the film Summer Catch (2001), a baseball movie that was set in Cape Cod, but some scenes were filmed in the town of Southport.

These days, Mr. Prinze is husband, daddy and business man. He is a producer and director with the WWE. (That’s right, wrastlin’!) He’s also known for his voiceover work in Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect Paragon Lost and Star Wars Rebels. Perhaps we should entice the Wilmywood-based show Battlefield Friends to help us in wishing Freddie Prinze Jr. a very happy birthday!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/05/2014 Under the Dome, Secrets & Lies, Sarah Jones, Bill Cosby.

HUMP DAAAYYY!!!  Good Morning Wilmywood!

UTD4Under the Dome is back on the sound stages today.  Shooting multiple scenes means the stars are a buzz at Screen Gems.  Our new Domies Eddie Cahill and Karla Crome join our original Chester’s Mill gang on set including Mike Vogel,  Aisha Hinds, Rachelle LeFevre, Alex Koch, Dean Norris, Britt Robertson...well pretty much all of our favorites!  WELCOME BACK!

Our new members Sherry Stringfield and Grace Victoria Cox will be heading to Wilmywood super soon.   Welcome to the Chester’s Mill Family!

ABC’s Secrets and Lies is back in Porters Neck again today, look forward to more hotness, Ryan Phillippe is back on set.  And speaking of which, the social butterfly that is producer Aaron Kaplan is back to tweeting shots from set…


 Bill-Cosby1Bill Cosby‘s “Far From Finished Tour” at Odell Williamson Auditorium is sold out for the 7pm show, BUT are now on sale for a 3:30pm matinee on April 6th! Tickets prices $67 & $77 (Plus applicable service fees and NC sales tax) GET TICKETS NOW.  Still to this day, his comedy show Himself is my all time favorite.   And I think so many who grew up in the 80s look to The Cosby Show for a little parenting school.  So brilliant!

sarahjones2More articles are coming out about camera assistant, Sarah Jones.  The Hollywood Reporter wrote a few articles, but a warning, some are absolutely heartbreaking.

1) Producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan also found a way to help the Academy acknowledge Sarah Jones, the camera operator whose death has raised the issue of set safety, in the broadcast, which was greeted with an uptick in ratings. READ NOW

2) The parents of the young camera assistant killed in the train accident on the Georgia set of “Midnight Rider,” as well as an injured hairstylist who survived it, reveal harrowing and graphic new details. “I saw my life, my kids, my family, all of it before me,” says the hairstylist. “I was sure I was going to die.” READ NOW

3) Exclusive Interview With Parents of ‘Midnight Rider’ Victim Sarah Jones: Elizabeth, tells THR, “A dollar mark cannot be put on stealing a shot at the risk of someone’s life.” READ NOW

SarahSlate2The folks at pledgetosarah.org are asking you to Take the Pledge! This is not about crews, or cast, or production, or us, or them,” it states.  “It’s about everyone on a production. Be safe and be aware. No exceptions. Safety is the responsibility we accept every time we step on a set and it only works if we all have each other’s backs – because no one wants to have to explain to a friend’s loved one why they didn’t speak up.”  TAKE THE PLEDGE NOW

filmjobsLOOKING FOR THOSE FILM=JOB STICKERS? Sunrise Broadcasting has a few.  Feel free to stop by and grab you one while they last at 25 N. Kerr Ave. (near the intersection of Market and Kerr across from the new Walgreens). Offices are open from 8:30am-5:30pm M-F.  Please one sticker per person please.  They will run out fast!  Thanks!
