THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 05/19/2014 Short History of Decay, Kristen Wiig, Legislative Day in Raleigh

Happy Monday Wilmywood!  I hope you enjoyed the wonder weather and fun this weekend. Let’s do this!

A Short History of DecayHere’s your chance to see the locally shot comedy, A Short History of Decay.  It’s getting excellent reviews!  It’s about a failed writer (Bryan Greenberg) discovers unexpected beauty and richness in the marriage of his ailing parents (Linda Lavin, Harris Yulin) after he moves to Florida to take care of them.  Of course,  our fabulous Wrightsville beach served as the beaches on the Gulf Coast.

A Short History of Decay

‎1hr 34min‎‎ – Rated R‎‎ – Comedy‎
Showing: Monday, May 19th – Wednesday, May 21st.
Director: Michael Maren – Cast: Emmanuelle Chriqui, Bryan Greenberg, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Harris Yulin, Linda Lavin

Max Steel is off except for a minor driving scene they will be shooting today.  Under the Dome shooting off Sunnyvale Dr. and Sleepy Hollow is on the soundstages today.

Kristen WiigICYMI: We were so bummed that Kristen Wiig wouldn’t be here because the feature film The Heart fizzled out, however, it was a pleasant surprise to see she has been cast in what we still call Loomis Fargo to star opposite Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson.  Relativity has already set a release date for the untitled armored car project. It is  Aug. 14, 2015.

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

 

WILMYWOOD FILM PEEPS OF THE DAY

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

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!
