Josh Duhamel shoots tourism commercial in downtown Fargo

Posted by Staff in Aug 22,2015 with No Comments

Downtown Fargo and the Fargo Theatre were the backdrop Sunday for a film shoot featuring movie star and Minot, N.D., native Josh Duhamel.

Rocking a crisp white shirt and dark suit and tie, Duhamel walked through a medley of settings showcasing what North Dakota has to offer, including fine dining, world-class sports teams and the actual wood chipper from the cult movie hit “Fargo.”

“Something new and fun around every corner,” Duhamel said as he delivered his lines that are part of the latest creative campaign for North Dakota tourism.

Print, TV and multimedia spots based on Sunday’s shoot and other production efforts will begin running early in 2016.

“The whole shoot is a week long,” said Sara Otte Coleman, North Dakota’s tourism director.

She added the shoot will wrap up about Wednesday.

As a major part of the campaign, Duhamel has been filmed in a number of locations around the state, according to Otte Coleman, who added it’s not the actor’s first involvement with North Dakota tourism. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Staff in Mar 12,2015 with No Comments

Josh Duhamel and Alice Eve have joined Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino in Beyond Deceit, a legal thriller that will mark the directorial debut of screenwriter Shintaro Shimosawa.

Glen Powell, who will appear in Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Scream Queens, and Leah McKendrick are also joining the cast, which already includes Malin Akerman and Byung-hun Lee.

Duhamel is stepping into the shoes previously worn by Dan Stevens, who dropped out due to a conflict with Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

Duhamel will now star as an ambitious young lawyer who takes on a big case against a ruthless executive of a pharmaceutical company, only to find himself drawn into a murder case in which he is the prime suspect. Eve portrays his wife.

The script was written by Adam Mason and Simon Boyes with a rewrite by Shimosawa.

Jonathan Senger and Ellen Wander are producing.

Duhamel last starred with Emmy Rossum and Hilary Swank in You’re Not You and is now on TV starring in CBS’ Battle Creek, the new cop show from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. He is repped by ICM Partners, John Carrabino Management and Hansen Jacobson.

Eve last shot thriller Criminal, from Millennium Films, in which she stars alongside Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Costner and Gal Gadot. She is due to reprise her role as Carol in Star Trek 3 and has Neil LaBute‘s Dirty Weekend premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival. She is repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment. [Source]

‘Battle Creek’ episode 2 preview: What’s next for Josh Duhamel, Dean Winters, cast?

Posted by Staff in Mar 08,2015 with No Comments

Did you enjoy the premiere of “Battle Creek” on CBS Sunday night? We certainly did. It is enough of a traditional cop show to feel familiar, but you’ve got two great leads in Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters to go along with a tone that allows for just a little bit of comedy. There’s some potential here for this to be the sort of series that sticks around for a long time, but it will depend ultimately on the ratings that come out tomorrow.

What we can say for now is that we absolutely love the title for the next new episode “Syruptitious.” We’re going to celebrate any time that we have a cheesy pun like this. The reason that this title is such is because maple syrup is going to be a huge theme in the latest investigation. Take a look at the synopsis below:

“Special Agent Milt Chamberlain and Det. Russ Agnew go undercover as distillers to infiltrate the world of Battle Creek’s maple syrup cartels when a murder victim is found to have drowned in the gooey breakfast condiment. Meanwhile, Det. Font White goes to war with his medical marijuana dealer.“

We have to say first and foremost that we’re not entirely sure that we ever imagined the words “maple syrup cartels” being used next to each other once in our entire life. Yet, we very much approve of it after the fact.

Hopefully, we’re going to see more entertaining moments on the show moving forward, as it is starting to be clear that Milt is going to be sticking around for a little while. We’ll have some further news soon. [Source]

Josh Duhamel, Ernie Hudson Suit Up For ‘The Wrong Stuff’

Posted by Staff in Mar 01,2015 with No Comments

Josh Duhamel and Ernie Hudson, who last worked together opposite Hilary Swank and Loretta Devine in the ensemble drama You’re Not You from eOne, are coming together again in the baseball drama The Wrong Stuff, based on the bestselling memoir by ex-pitcher Bill “Spaceman” Lee and Richard Lally. The film is being directed by Brett Rapkin and produced by Stephen Nemeth, co-produced by Betsy Stahl and executive produced by Ron Shelton (White Men Can’t Jump) and Eric Gagne. Rapkin also penned the script. Shooting is expected to begin next week in Los Angeles.

Set in the 1980s, the film chronicles the downward spiral of Major League pitcher Lee, a hot-tempered, self-serving madman unable to see himself as anything other than a baseball player. Duhamel is cast as the volatile Lee. Hudson will portray Joe, the only black player and first baseman for the all-white, French Canadian Longeuil Senators amateur club. Hudson’s character, an experienced player with 30 years in the sport, is the stabilizing force on the scrappy team.

Duhamel starred in several of the Transformers films and also stars in the CBS crime drama series Battle Creek, which premieres Sunday. Hudson is best known, perhaps, for his turn in the beloved comedy Ghostbusters. [Source]

Arrgh! Josh Duhamel Stars in Jake and the Never Land Pirates

Posted by Staff in Jan 04,2014 with No Comments

Ahoy, matey: Josh Duhamel is teaming up with a band of pirates! The actor (and new dad!) is lending his voice as Captain Flynn in the season three premiere of Disney’s Jake and the Never Land Pirates, airing Friday at 8:30 a.m. EST on the Disney channel.

In the episode, Captain Flynn finds his ship stuck in the sand and enlists the help of Jake and the gang to search for the magical staff that will set him free. But before they find their buried treasure, the pint-size marauders must go up against a pirate mummy (Jack McBrayer).

We have no doubt Axl Jack will get a kick out of hearing his dad’s voice on the hit show one day, but according to Duhamel’s wife Fergie, their 4-month-old baby boy seems to be following in his musical mama’s footsteps.

“He starts kicking and he’s smiling, and he tries to make noise and sing along. It’s amazing. He loves our songs!” Fergie told PEOPLE in November.

Duhamel Checks Out His Latest Investment

Posted by Staff in Nov 25,2013 with No Comments

We told you yesterday about the old Sweetheart Bakery in Bismarck opening up under a new name, Sixteen03 Main Events.

One of the main investors is movie star Josh Duhamel. The actor is back in his home state for a quick tour of the new venue and a soft opening later this evening. Sixteen03 Main Events is similar to one he’s a part of in Minot, but this venue is much larger and will be used in a different manner.

“And what I love about it is it’s not your typical structure. It’s the old Sweetheart Bakery, and a lot of the stuff they had when they used to bake bread and everything else is still downstairs.  So, they’ve repurposed a lot of that for decoration or found another use for it in this place, which makes it feel a little more authentic,” says Duhamel.

Duhamel’s sister is also an investor with Sixteen03 Main Events. [Source]
