Angela Peri from Boston Casting was in the studio today to talk about all the exciting filming opportunities in the Boston area. Boston casting is looking for several hard core Red Sox fans for an upcoming commercial. Ted 2 will start shooting by the end of the month and lots of extras will be needed. Boston Casting will be casting for the movie about boxer Vinny Pazienza. Sign up on Boston.com for more information.
Boston will celebrate the 4th of July, on the 3rd tonight. The esplanade show, The Boston Pops, and the fireworks, are all bumped to tonight because of tomorrows predicted weather with hurricane Arthur.
Storrow Drive will close at noon today. Memorial Drive, The Mass Ave Bride and Longfellow Bridge will close at 6 tonight. The Esplanade is not opening until 5 today, no backpacks, no bicycles, and no coolers allowed. The lineup still stands, the Pops, Megan Hilty, Joey McIntyre and the Beach Boys.
If the weather takes a turn for the worse tonight the fireworks will likely be put off until Saturday night. The Pops show though would not be rescheduled. Rumor has it that a conflict with the Beach Boys schedule is to blame.
