THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/11/2013 Jill Jones, Amandla Stenberg on set of Sleepy Hollow, A Cucalorus Must See and More.

JillJonesIn case you missed it last week, Jill Marie Jones (Girlfriends) has joined the cast of Sleepy Hollow as Cynthia, the former wife of Frank Irving (Orlando Jones) and mother to their teenage daughter, Macey played by Amandla Stenberg.  (Might I add I love the fact that Jones and Jones are playing the ex married couple.)  Jill and Amandla have been in Wilmywood since last week and their debut episode airs November 25th.  Both have recurring roles, so look forward to having these two lovely ladies in town for a few weeks.  Amandla is already having a great time on set.

Let’s back up a bit and take a look at tonight’s episode, The Midnight Ride, shall we! Abbie and Ichabod look for clues to stop the evil in town; Abbie receives an unexpected visit from Andy Brooks (John Cho).

Bad_Grandpa_USAlthough Thor: The Dark World hammered the competition at the weekend box office earning $86 million in its debut, our North Carolina shot Bad Grandpa remained strong with $11.3 million. The comedy’s three-week total stands at $78.7 million.

CUCALORUSA CUCALORUS MUST SEE: Broadcast – A Man and his Dream is the story of Ralph Epperson growing up in the 1920s and 30s the son of tobacco farmers in the hills of Southwestern Virginia/Northwestern North Carolina and daring to dream of a different life. As a boy he discovered radio and from then on was led by a desire to understand how to transmit sound through the airwaves. This love of technology was coupled with a passion for the broadcast2music native to his growing up, “it was then called old time and now we call it bluegrass,” along with a strong faith in God and community. In 1948 Ralph realized his dream with the opening of his first station, WPAQ 740 AM, Mt. Airy, NC, “the voice of the Blue Ridge” but his dream didn’t stop there. Most of his family followed him out of the tobacco fields and into radio. broadcastToday more than 150 radio stations around the nation owe their beginnings to Ralph Epperson and his dream as well as countless musicians who continued their music and passed along the tradition that still exists today of Blue Ridge style string music. In 2005 Director, Jordan Nance, dared to dream that despite his physical limitations from severe cerebral palsy he could make a film about Ralph and WPAQ. Now in 2013 Jordan’s dream is a reality.

The screening will be on Sunday, Nov 17 at 10:45AM in the studio theatre at Thalian Hall. There will be live bluegrass for those who come a little early and enjoy Jones Smith & Co.

Catch the opening minute of Jordan Nance’s first documentary film, Broadcast: A Man and His Dream. WATCH IT NOW

Sleepy-Hollow-TitleCongrats to Sleepy Hollow as it premiered in the UK this week, giving Universal TV its best ratings since 2005! The weather has really put a damper in a consistent shoot schedule for the Sleepyheads. They are shooting on the back lot and then they head to Adam’s Antiques on Castle St. where our two hero’s walk into the store and investigate a break in. Yeah, I said head 🙂 The Brunswick county shoot has been pushed until next week.

As if they weren’t busy enough, they also HEAD to the New York Comic Con. Their panel is is Sunday afternoon. An autograph session will follow the Q&A.

REMINDER: Also this Sunday is The Walking Dead Viewing Party and Costume Contest at Theatre Now

alexcolinAlexander Koch joined Colin Ford at People Magazine’s Ones To Watch Party held at Hinoki & The Bird Wednesday night in Los Angeles. Alex recently spoke with Elle Magazine about Season 2 of Under the Dome and what we should expect.

“It’s going to be compelling and very different. We’re going to see the world as it’s changed, what this new empire that Jim’s created has become.” ~Alexander Koch

Under the Dome will reopen offices in January and begin principal photog in February.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 09/16/2013 Thom Tillis, NC Film Emmy Winners, tonight’s BIG night and more.

ThomTillisNorth Carolina State Rep Thom Tillis spoke at a picnic for Republicans over the weekend and weighed in on the film incentives. WECT has him quoted saying:

“I believe the film industry is critical to Wilmington, it’s critical in Charlotte, it’s growing in Ashville.  We’ve got to figure out a way to make sure that North Carolina’s competitive.  I think there’s a way to continue to move forward with tax reform but make absolutely certain that North Carolina is the go-to place for the film industry for productions and all the other good jobs that come with it,”

Episode 3 of NBC‘s powerless show was remembered by these crazy two over the weekend.  I have to say I laughed when I saw these shots on Facebook this weekend.  We lost a location as Sticky Fingers is no more and apparently members of the Militia had to express there feelings about it!

The ‘rebel hideout’ where the Monroe Militia first captured Miles Matheson has been reduced to rubble…
