The upcoming movie Tammy is expected to begin filming around Wilmington, N.C. on May 3rd and they are looking for extras.
Tammy stars Melissa McCarthy as a woman who is having one of the worst days of her life when she is fired from her job and then finds out her husband is cheating on her. For her sanity’s sake, she decides to hit the road with her grandmother (Susan Sarandon) whose lesbian friend (Kathy Bates) joins them. Tammy meets a strange man (Mark Duplass) along the way and they enter into a relationship. Dan Aykroyd will play Duplass’ father and Allison Janney will play McCarthy’s mother.
This week crews are scouting locations in Brunswick County and Boiling Spring Lakes where several scenes are expected to be shot during the week of May 20. They’re also building a set at Two Fat Ladies Over a Simmering Pot in Wilmington which will be closed until May 10 for the movie.
MartysCasting has posted several casting calls on their Facebook Page. Currently they are looking for people with RVs, people to play grandparents, fisherman, people with dogs, and more. You can see the complete listings and learn how to apply at https://www.facebook.com/MartysCasting.
