Well, I was gonna be quiet about it, but TMZ per their usual sneakiness just leaked the news. Lindsey Lohan is in town for a stint on Eastbound and Down.  SPOILER ALERT: She is playing the adult version of Kenny’s illegitimate daughter on the season and series finale.

TMZ reports there could be a spin-off based on her character in EBD Season 4…saying: “It’s a pretty big opportunity for Lindsay — her first real acting gig since she left rehab — because if she’s funny, a spin-off could be in the cards. Crazier things have happened.”

So what is like to be with her on set?  Yesterday, my sources said she was really nice to everyone and is happy to be back in the acting world.  I am actually really excited she is here because I am pulling for her to get her career back on track.  I think I have watched Mean Girls like 100 times!

And if that is not enough, guess who else is in town?  If you’re a True Blood fan, you will love to know Mr. Hotness Alexander Skarsgard will be on set today as well!  Eastbound has pulled out all the stops when it comes to cameos this season!  A huge scene is supposed to go down on Eastbound and Down in Castle Hayne this afternoon, weather permitting.

Our gorgeous local boy, Dominic Santana is back in the local ET news.  Or more like BET news!  Huge congrats are in order as Dominic will continue his stint on the second season of the comedy, The Game.  “I’m looking forward to what BET may have in store for me and representing Wilmington film.”   Production starts back up in October.  Love that man!  He gives the BEST hugs!  Congrats Dom!

As far as filming goes today, the weather is not helping. Christmas in Conway is supposed to back on Forest Hills Drive.

sleepyhollowSleepy Hollow is in luck as they are shooting in Atkinson today.  Hopefully the weather will hold out for them.  We are in 2nd place.  Let’s try to take over New York and reach the #1 spot to ensure our early screening of Sleepy Hollow!  We need 100 votes to reach #1 VOTE NOW and VOTE EVERY DAY.

Melissa McCarthy FIRES Extra For Mistreating Kid!

 

Marching orders were issued yesterday in Boiling Springs Lake on the set of Tammy as the star of the movie, Melissa McCarthy, had a PA remove an ill-tempered mother who was there with her son to play as Extras in the big lake scene.  The extras count quickly diminished by a pair when Melissa saw the woman being very “unmotherly” when trying to discipline her out-of-control child. TMZ got wind of it and reported:

The extra, a woman in her 20s, brought along her child — age approximately 4-5 — for the daylong shoot by a lake … and the standard $58 payday … sources tell TMZ. Witnesses say the young mom had been struggling with her kid all morning … constantly harping on the child to “stop it” and quiet down … loudly enough to disrupt the production, which included more than 200 extras. Sources say the last straw came when the mom harshly jerked the child up in the air by the wrist — and McCarthy saw it all. The director IMMEDIATELY had PAs bounce the woman … saying she wouldn’t tolerate abuse on her set … and that was that.

Read the full TMZ story!

I CAN CONFIRM THAT IT IS INDEED TRUE.  The Extras Casting Director said that she respects Melissa not just as an actress, but also as a person.  McCarthy has expressed that she will not tolerate such behavior.  She has also stated multiple times during production meetings and on set that it is very important to her that all cast and crew have a pleasant experience while working on Tammy.

Well said, Melissa, very well said.
