Lots of little tidbits today!  Let’s start with where the stars will be today.  The fabulous folks Under the Dome are back on the lot today.  The Perfect Summer will be in Carolina Beach today.  FYI they are looking for EXPERIENCED surfers for their upcoming beach scenes being filmed in Carolina Beach and Wrightsville Beach.  Please submit a current photograph, age, contact information & wardrobe sizes to: perfectsummerextras@gmail.com with the subject SURFER.

Tammy is already under way this morning along Nun St.  Allison Janney makes her way to set today. Folks who were involved in yesterday’s shoot at Two Fat Ladies gave glowing reports about their experience on set.  Kristin shares about her husband’s time on set.   “He had a blast filming today and Friday.  He said Melissa McCarthy was so nice and hilarious. He sometimes found it hard to keep a straight face while filming.  She thanked everyone at the end if the day. Class act!”

"Crystal Head Vodka"The highlight of the day, however, took place at the ABC store down the street.  No, I am not kidding!  Dan Aykroyd headed to the liquor store and signed bottles of his Crystal Head vodka.  Yep, Glenn was lucky to get his hands on one! She also gave major praise (well -deserved) to the extras casting director Marty Siu.  People are going to have fun filming on Tammy with such great people.  To get in on the action visit the extras casting page.  They will be hiring over 2000 folks for this film!

Let’s also give a quick nod to the filming going on west of us!  Homeland 3 is just about ready to roll in a couple of weeks.  They are back in North Carolina, mainly in the Charlotte/Concord area. You can find all the Extras Casting opportunities here for ‘Homeland 3,’ as well as ‘Careful What You Wish For’ and ‘Banshee

Locally shot Safe Haven is hitting Blu-ray and DVD today. Although the film wasn’t released worldwide, it still managed to make a decent amount, pulling in over $71 million at the US box office.
