Just wanted to give a heads up for all of you Background Extra’s out there…Big Casting Call announcement Monday April 2,for GrownUps 2 Casting call via Sande Alessi Casting Boston  Adam Sandler  and Kevin James and others will be filming this Summer in New England. If you missed on getting in on the first one,hopefully you will have a chance with this one. Nothing like being in a Adam Sandler or Kevin James Film..I was in Mall Cop and Here comes the Boom. It would be nice if a casting call was held here in Maine for Grown Ups 2….I will post the Mass Casting Call on Monday, as soon as I get it. She is on Facebook as well and be sure to like her Page.

It would be great if more production companies viewed Maine as a great State to do more films here. Hopefully the big peeps at the State House in Augusta will lure more movies here to Maine this Summer.

Tom Hanks Filming Movie In Bay State – Video – WCVB Boston

Tom Hanks Filming Movie In Bay State – Video – WCVB Boston.

I just wanted to add this to the mix of things…Great that Worcester is being used for a location for the Tom Hanks Capt.Phillips movie..but honestly its a bit unfair that the director is tanking the thoughts of shooting in Sudbury…But that is Hollywood for ya..or as Heidi Clum would say..One day your in the next day your Out!

Tom Hanks Crew changing the local scenery in Sudbury for Capt Phillips Movie shoot


The latest news just received from a close source at Boston Central that Filming may be scrapped for that town..see link above…It appears that Tom Hanks ship may not arrive in Sudbury after all…what a disappointment! C’mon guys..just a few scenes… Psst to the Director..How about Cohasset Mass…Your going to get a nice town with historic buildings..Jack Nicholson and Cher loved it in the Witches of EastWick!  and Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn liked it in House Sitter…It would settle for your Vermont Town! Oh well…


Note- This was passed along to me by Boston Central regarding Tom Hanks crew setting up for shooting of Capt.Phillips in Sudbury Mass today…Cool Stuff I must say,NEHollywood blog writer is a big fan of Mr.Hanks and his movies…So Welcome aboard Mr.Hanks and Welcome to Sudbury Mass…Nice to see the cameras rolling in Mass again..been sort of quiet lately Production wise in Mass regarding filming…Though other films have been shooting in the past month..Love those Mass Film Tax credits at work!

See what one participant said about our last headshot and resume event:

“What a relief to have an event with everything in one place. Not only was it convenient, but the event was well organized. Everything ran smoothly because of how well timed each station performed their task (hair and makeup, resume and photography.) The staff was exceptional! The price phenomenal. Thank you for your professionalism.”
