  1. As long as the article is being specific and naming the leads in the movie, one was omitted…David Tennant. He is not a total unknown in the U.S., and deserves equal mention.

  2. I second the David Tennant mention… He’ll probably make the movie for me… Everything I’ve seen him in, he’s been awesome.

  3. Is onlocationcasting.com the only website yuo can apply fro an extra? I have looked on many many websites, and OLC is the only website listed.

  4. They are shooting a street away from where I live. Also another neighborhood in a place called north hills. I live in Northern meadows, and I can see the trailers from here.

  5. i have been on set watching them shoot. Colin Farrell is not as tall as he looks on tv . all thr people on set are real kool they found me a place to sit closer than every one els only the crew can get closer

  6. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any points for rookie blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.
