Don’t mess with Jen!

When this New Mexico Filmophile happened upon a day of Lone Survivor filming in Albuquerque last week, I had the chance to re-introduce myself (stammer and gush) to the one and only Mark Wahlberg!
Wahlberg praised New Mexico, saying he likes filming here, reminding me that he just finished-up a great shoot on another NMFilm, “2 Guns”. He admiringly made mention of the hardworking crew and staff who have been handling the remote mountain shoots on this current project.
Besides lauding the local filming conditions and talent, the family man was also quick to state how convenient it is to get back home to California on breaks from shooting.
So now, my original 20 year-old Mark Wahlberg story comes full circle. It was great to see him at work and he’s just as kind and considerate (and gorgeous) as he was when I first met him as a teen.
In fact, after the take I was able to see, he popped out of the scene and said to me, “Sorry about the language”, with a wink and a smile, regarding his character’s colorful vocabulary (he’s got nothing on Ted).
And just like all the reports and fan photos from 2 Guns would suggest, the star’s graciousness extends to every shoot. When I first got to the set Wahlberg was snapping some pics and chatting with staffers and such. YES ladies and gentlemen, I too got away with a pic and a hug!
Things I forgot to ask:
Whether or not he has or will meet-up with Jennifer Aniston, his Rock Star co-star who’s also currently filming here.
Did he hear anything about filming in NM from his “Fighter” co-stars Christain Bale (3:10 to Yuma, Terminator Salvation) or Amy Adams (Sunshine Cleaning)? What about “The Book of Eli” duo, Denzel Washington (2 Guns co-star) or Mila Kunis (Ted co-star)?
What he thought of big brother Donnie’s stint on the NM series “In Plain Sight”.
Does he watch Breaking Bad?

CORRECTION: It was previously reported in this post that actress Amy Madigan was in New Mexico to film this upcoming American Girl movie with Jane Seymour, however new details are that Madigan was in fact here at work on Frontera, starring her husband, Ed Harris and Eva Longoria.

First look – the beautiful and multi-talented Jane Seymour, between scenes on American Girl in Old Town Albuquerque this week!
UPDATE 10/17/12: American Girl is filming in Old Town Albuquerque today through 12:00 p.m. 200 volunteer background adults and children to be on scene as onlookers.
NOW FILMING – Twilight-shmilight, book series’ turned movies are all the rage, and New Mexico is getting a little piece of the “American Girl” franchise!
On the 2008 heels of “Kit Kittredge: An American Girl” for the big screen, another installment of the direct-to-video film series, based on the outrageously popular line of 18-inch dolls, is currently filming in New Mexico.
The dolls portray nine to eleven–year–old girls of a variety of ethnicities. The current “Girl of the Year” (GOTY) is Alberta.
A(merican) G(irl) Tube reported in September:
Upset that her New Mexico school can only afford music and art teachers in alternate years, fourth-grader Saige works with her grandmother, Mimi, to plan a fundraiser but when Mimi has an accident, Saige relies on new friend Gabi to help. (Book One- Meet Saige) Painting in her grandmother’s studio and riding her favorite horse, Georgia, helps fourth-grader Saige cope with missing Mimi and sparks an idea for funding the school art program, but more creativity will be needed to keep Georgia from being sold. (Book Two- Saige Paints The Sky). Her books are written by Jessica Haas and is illustrated by Sarah Davis (the same illustrator who drew the gorgeous illustrations in the Kanani books).
American Girl is holding auditions and is looking for: A girl with a fair complexion (the character may be named Alberta), A girl from Latin America (the character may be named Gayle), A girl of all/ any ethnicities (the character may be named Dina), and a girl with blonde hair (who may be named Tasha).
Over the summer it was announced that Jane Seymour is cast as the adult lead in the film, which has already completed principal photography in Manitoba, Canada.
American Girl: Alberta is exec. produced by Debra Martin Chase (Lemonade Mouth, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Princess Diaries), and is directed by Vince Marcello.
Actress Olivia Wilde, famous for her stunning looks, beloved for her romantic musings on Santa Fe, now dishes on her love life with fellow NM Filmer Jason Sudeikis.
Monday night, live and on stage at a performance of monologues called, “These Girls”, hosted by Glamour magazine, the star said, among other things:
“We have sex like Kenyan marathon runners.”
Well then…we knew girl had passion when we fell in love with her poetic descriptions of her time filming Cowboys & Aliens here in NM back in 2010.
Wilde’s boyfriend and “marathon” partner Jason Sudeikis is currently wrapping-up filming on “We’re The Millers” here in the Land of Enchantment with ROCK star Jennifer Anistion.
Aniston recently made headlines all over the world flashing her meteoric sized engagement bauble out in about in Santa Fe, the same city where Wilde’s Cowboys co-star, Harrison Ford grabbed global attention for marrying his longtime love Calista Flockhart.
We’re not ones to judge or pressure, but we can’t help but wonder if the “blissfully, hopefully, wildly in love” stars may follow in these GRANDE Romantico New Mexico displays of amor!
Cast and crew have been hard at work shooting the long awaited film “50 to 1”, a true story of the feisty team of cowboys who came together to send the long shot New Mexico horse, Mine that Bird all the way to an unforgettable win at the 2009 Kentucky Derby.
“50 to 1”, previously titled “Wild Ride”, has been filming in various New Mexico locations, including Las Cruces, Santa Fe, Sunland Park Racetrack and Albuquerque.
In fact if you happened through the valley at just the right time over the weekend, you may have caught a glimpse of some of the stars while ABQ filming was underway! Pictured above: Skeet Ulrich as Chip Woolley, Todd Lowe as Kelly Denninton and David Atkinson as Billy Woolley.
Now ready to wrap their stint here in NM, next-up for the whole production is Kentucky and the hallowed ground on which the “crooked-legged, little horse” from New Mexico scored his spectacular and historic Derby win!
“50 to 1” is directed and produced by Jim Wilson, the Über producer behind such films as The Body Guard, Dances With Wolves, Message in a Bottle and Swing Vote.
The film also stars Christian Kane, William Devane and Madelyn Deutch.
You can also get in on the Louisville, Kentucky shoot here!
Special thanks to Bob, Bub & Dale

For a fake reporter, such as myself, it’s heartening to know that even during sluggish times in New Mexico Entertainment news I can always count on our friends in the trenches to provide light, yet important fair regarding our state’s coveted celebrity guests.
Like the crack news team, lauded world-wide for bringing you the details on President Barack Obama’s Chile plate preference, I can announce to you today that America’s sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston, recently ordered herself up a plate of….RED!
A girl’s gotta eat right? These are the kinds of facts I like to know about our superstar guests, this and the other widely spreading word on the trail that Ms. Aniston is just as awesome, unpretentious and kind to all those around her as we’ve all heard she is.
Aniston is in town for just a little while longer wrapping-up her latest film, “We’re the Millers” co-starring Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts and New Mexico, USA standing-in for Arizona and Old Mexico.
