CastComing SoonFilmNMNM's Own

From NM to NC – These two New Mexikids who were cast mates in the locally filmed Hallmark Hall of Fame movie Beyond the Blackboard are hitting the books big screen style!

Both New Mexico actors were cast in two critically acclaimed, highly anticipated novels turned films due out next year.

Odd Thomas starring Fright Night’s Anton Yelchin and Addison Timlin, currently in post production – shot right here in NM and features OHI fave Jack Justice.

The Hunger Games filming in North Carolina boasts one of New Mexico’s Own in up & comer, Willow Shields who created a buzz for landing the coveted role of Primrose Everdeen in the film as a relative unknown alongside bigger hitters like Liam Hemsworth (brother of Thor, boyfriend to Miley) Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) and Josh Hutcherson (The Kids Are All Right).

Look for both films and these rising New Mexico stars in 2012.

Odd Back ON!

Posted by on July 7, 2011 | Comments Off on Odd Back ON!


As we told you here the Dean Koontz novel turned star studded, New Mexico movie was recently ensnared with “administrative” woes – so much so that production and payroll had come to a screeching halt!

From On Location Casting, production rolls again:

Per Producers – As of midnight last night, banks loans & financing have officially closed and the project is now fully financed/funded, bonded and insured. Crew paychecks are available as of 10:00am today, so EMS Payroll should have funds available now to release all Extras paychecks. You can probably call EMS directly to get confirmation of this.

A request has been put in to both SAG and the local IATSE union for clearances for all crew and actors to go back to work.

Production intends to begin filming agaian later TODAY (Thurs. 7/7/11) beginning with night shoots today and tomorrow. We still do not have a revised full shooting schedule so do not yet know what to expect in terms of our extras needs for the remainder of the shoot.

From the Producers – “There are no more worries about the financial health of our movie. We are very aware what you have endured hanging in there with us through the last weeks/months and apologize sincerely for the hardships caused. Let’s finish our magical movie.”

Once we know what/who we are booking, we at OLC hope that everyone will once again be willing to work as extras/stand-ins on this project. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks Chris

Ay Dios Mio: Odd Interruptus

UPDATE 6/23/11: ‎””Odd Thomas” is still on break possibly until mid next week. We will post information here as it becomes available.” – OLC, Extras Casting, NM

Apparently it’s a SAG drag in Santa Fe as the highly touted film adaptation of the coveted Dean Koontz novel of the same name, Odd Thomas hits some financial skids…

The production has been filming since early spring starring Anton Yelchin, *Lily Collins Addison Timlin, Patton Oswalt, Willem Dafoe and slated to feature Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson

According to NM based entertainment co., Reelz Channel the production halted work earlier this week due to, “financing troubles”.

Furthermore, Reelz says an email distributed to Screen Actors Guild (SAG) actors working on the film stated that, “Two Out of Ten Productions, is in default under a SAG agreement” and that “SAG members should not work on Odd Thomas until further instructed.” {sads}

Read the full scoop from real Entertainment writer, Chris Ortiz here.

*correction – thanks to the kind and helpful words of marian (below), we’re happy to report that young Addison Timlin (Entourage Californication), will be playing the role of Stormy Llewellyn once speculated/reported as going to Lilly Collins.

AlbuquerqueCastFilmNMNM's OwnTalent

As we told you here Albuquerque’s own Willow Shields is making national, nay world news as the young talent who has been cast as Primrose Everdeen in the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ bestseller The Hunger Games.

OHI fave Jack Justice Brown is also making news that swells our hearts with joy, as the Albuquerque native too is cast in a rabid fan followed, bestselling novel adaptation – Odd Thomas is currently in production locally and NM’s beloved Jack Justice has landed the role of young Odd.

Both young actors were recently featured in the NM production of the Hallmark Hall of Fame original movie Beyond the Blackboard as premiered Easter Sunday on CBS – find it to see many of NM’s Own!

Major congratulations to these two New Mexicans for making great strides in their field and being true artists that we can all be proud of!

Odd Casting News

Posted by on April 14, 2011 | Comments Off on Odd Casting News

Famed raw comic Patton Oswalt has been revealed as being cast in the supernatural thriller Odd Thomas set to film in NM – Oswalt, maybe even better known as the most recognized rodent voice since Mick, will play the eccentric artist who crafts the mayhaps magical pendant donned by Thomas (Anton Yelchin) himself.

It’s been long rumored that Willem Dafoe will join the cast as the town police chief who shares in the knowledge about just what makes Thomas so odd with leading lady Addison Timlin (Californication). But no official confirmation has been released.

Also not quite confirmed but apparently deep in talks and most definitely deeply desired, young Nico Tortorella (Scream 4) is being sought for the villainous cult member with his evil eye set on destroying the town of Odd.

Of course if Tortorella can’t fall into the role of this New Mexico film, me thinks OneHeadlightInk FAVE (who should’ve ABSOLUTELY been cast as the new Spiderman) Logan Lerman (aka Nut Butter Boy) could certainly take-up the reins!

FilmNMSanta Fe

Well, well, well, as we live and day drink…Own Wilson be spotted on the regular in the Fe as of late.

Recently O was spied at one of OHI’s favorite chemists’ joints Marble Brewery (they serve food there too haters, don’t get all-up on Owen’s wagon!) amongst other Fanta Se eateries.

The New Mexico Military Institute alum is likely in NM for the Odd Thomas shoot, which he’s been rumored to be a part of for nay on several years now…Odd is based on the novel by Dean Koontz and is rather hush, hush, though young Anton Yelchin (NM Vet in: Terminator Salvation, Fright Night) has just recently been disclosed as CAST.
