THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 08/06/2015 Local actor joins Fantastic Four, The Choice, One Tree Hill, Under the Dome

First things first let’s give HUGE kudos to our local boy, Anthony Reynolds. He is hitting the big screen this weekend in Fantastic Four. He was fortunate to have been on set for 12 weeks in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, playing opposite Tim Blake Nelson and the Four. He plays a Civilian Military Official. So give him a huge round of applause when you see him on the screen this weekend!

adamanddrewRich posted this on my wall yesterday!  Good find!  Wilmington and the film industry get a little love on the first eight minutes of this podcast from Orlando Jones!… LISTEN NOW!

Stephen Collins who most know from the television show 7th Heaven, and many here know him as Dr. Gene Porter from Revolution has been accused of sexually

SteveCollinsabusing three underage girls. According to CNN’s NewDay, in the divorce documents filed by his estranged second wife, Faye Grant, Collins admitted to her that he molested them more than a decade earlier. Two of the girls lived in New York, one in Los Angeles, according to the divorce papers. Police in New York are aware of child molestation allegations by a former relative against Collins, but due to the statute of limitations, he cannot face charges in that case. In New York, a person has five years from their 18th birthday to make an accusation of sexual abuse to authorities. That time has passed.
