THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 02/14/2014 Wilmywood Love, Max, Tammy, How & Why and more.

It’s the day of love, so let’s LOVE on some Wilmywood shall, we!  What I am already loving is the top three stars cast all have a Wilmywood connection. Ryan Phillippe w/ I Know What You Did Last Summer, Natalie Martinez w/ Under the Dome and Juliette Lewis w/ Hick.  Who else that has stepped before the sands of Wrightsville Beach will grace us with their presence?

If you missed it in the last blog, check out Our Wilmywood Valentines, some adorable couples throughout the decades of movies and TV shot right here in Wilmington, NC.

The latest winter storm charged fiercely upon the South, making Atlanta shut down production for a few days.  However, the NC Film crew didn’t let the latest polar vortex stop them from getting things done Under the Dome, and there certainly is a lot to do.  The construction team is currently the busiest, rebuilding last season’s sets at EUE/Screen Gems Studios and from what I hear building some new ones.

Writer/Showrunner of Under the Dome, Dr. Neal Baer will be honored on Feb. 27 by City Year Denver for his contributions on health, education and other issues involving youth. “I am committed to finding ways to keep kids in school,” he told the Denver Post. Baer will screen his NC shot documentary about new approaches to education, “If You Build It,” during the event.  But that’s not all he said.  You know they had to deliver questions about Season 2 of Under the Dome.

Baer told the Denver Post, “It’s bigger, bolder than last season. In the first five minutes you see the demise of one character; two die in the first episode. No one is safe.”

AhnOReillyOur Sleepy Hollow Heads are beyond busy as they are bringing yet another show to television.

JulietteLewisNow more exciting news about our new ABC show Secrets & Lies! It’s the return of Juliette Lewis.  Yep, we get our girl back!  Remember when she was here for Hick in 2011? Crew members certainly do.

“Juliette Lewis was the best one on that show.  She was really cool.  She was great to everybody, very down to Earth,” said one NC crew member.

She has been cast as Detective Andrea Cornell, who is watching  Ben Garner (Ryan Phillippe) like a hawk, after he discovers the body of a 4 year old boy while out on a morning run.  Her character has been describes as being “incredibly professional, hard to read who can come across as intentionally odd with a disconcerting calm who is often if not always the smartest person in the room.(Source:THR).

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 02/06/2014 – GOOD LAWD! Max Steel, Secrets Lies, Under the Dome, Steven Fiore and more!

Wow!  Such an amazing week for BREAKING casting news. Yep, last week was the quiet before the storm.  I have blogged all damn day and night monitoring all the media outlets and doing some major snooping around with my own sources.  So, basically, I haven’t slept in days!  I have GOT to hire some staff!  Okay, so, let’s review what we have so far and put it together in one blog. Damn, I need a nap!

SecretsLies_CastABC’s SECRETS AND LIES  – Ryan Phillippe signed the dotted line yesterday and now he is a done deal.  Just after that announcement came one that made us go Hmmmm.  Natalie Martinez is playing leap frog with the networks. Martinez will play the character Jess, the child’s devastated mother.  Secrets & Lies centers on a house painter and family man (Phillippe) who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a young boy when he finds the body while out on a morning run. He must find the real murderer to clear his name and save his marriage, his reputation and any chance of having a normal family life again. If you remember EP Neal Baer said earlier last month, that two of our favorite characters on Under the Dome won’t live to see episode two. Now with that being said, if Natalie is joining the cast of ABC’s Secrets & Lies, could “Linda” be the one of the two that won’t live to see another episode?? Hmmmmm….  WAITING ON CASTING CHOICES FOR  16-year-old Natalie, 12-year-old Abby, Ben’s wife, Christy.

UTD_CASTCBS’S UNDER THE DOME SEASON 2 – The 18-year-old newbie actress Grace Victoria Cox  will recur as the mysterious and beautiful Melanie, who catches the eye of Joe (Colin Ford). Eddie Cahill CSI: New York has been cast as Big Jim’s brother in law, Sam, who is the “crazy drunk” who lives in the woods!   Also, Karla Crome (Misfits) joins the enclosed gang!  Crome will play Rebecca, the beautiful school teacher who we’ve been talking about.

MAXSTEEL_CASTMATTEL’S MAX STEEL – Open Road will release domestically in 2015. Atlanta boy, Ben Winchell will take on the lead role of Max McGrath.  He’s best known for his roles in Lifetime’s Pregnancy Pact, as well as Dixon in season 3 of A.N.T. Farm (Disney) and Eric in season 2 of Necessary Roughness (TNT). Ana Villafane will play Max’s love interest, Sydney Gardner.  She’s an up-and-coming Latina actress and singer from Miami, Florida.  Villafane is best known for her starring role in Anchor Bay’s 2012 release Hiding playing a protected witness relocated from New York City to Montana.  Also, in this flick was Jeremy Sumpter who we just had here working on The Squeeze.

Natalie Martinez "Linda"

Natalie Martinez “Linda”

WHAT? IS THIS A SPOILER ALERT!

Our Domie, Natalie Martinez has signed on to our ABC drama pilot Secrets & Lies.  She will Ryan Phillipe who sealed the deal today.  Martinez will play the character Jess, the child’s devastated mother.  Secrets & Lies centers on a house painter and family man (Phillippe) who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a young boy when he finds the body while out on a morning run.

Max-SteelVariety’s Dave McNary wrote an article yesterday morning on the unveiling of Max Steel which will happen tomorrow in Europe.  He opens with:

 “The Berlin festival may not unspool on a sunny beach, but the European Film Market, which runs alongside the fest, is becoming much more like Cannes and the American Film Market — at least when it comes to serving as a launching pad for major movies.” 

So get ready for Max Steel which will make an appearance at the EFM (European Film Market) and Mattel and Dolphin Films will unveil more details about the live-action adaptation.  So, that means we can look forward to more details this week!
