Things Are Heating Up In Hanover, Maine Thanks To The King Foundation

According to The Sun Journal located in Lewiston, Maine, The Kings' Foundation has provided a $5,000.00 grant to a Gardner Roberts Memorial Library in Hanover for a propane heater and insulation for the ceiling to warm the Victorian-style library.  This will now provide some more heat so that the library may stay open longer during the winter months.  (for full story)
What an adorable library!

Under The Dome mini-series with Stephen Spielberg as Director

Ms. Mod. SKMB verified that Stephen Spielberg has optioned the rights for Under The Dome.  There hasn't been any other information regarding a timeline for when the mini-series might be produced or aired.  Once information becomes available I will post.  :) 

Fan Choice for Barbie:

I say absolutely to Sam Worthington!  He rocked in all of his films.  Avatar, Terminator Salvation, and Clash of the Titans

Fan Choice for Big Jim Rennie:

When choosing a photo, John Goodman had to look hateful even though we all know he is a teddybear at heart.  He has been acting since '77 in Jailbait Babysitter, (one I can honestly say I haven't seen) his longevity in the business speaks for itself. Casting John Goodman for Big Jim Rennie is a great idea.  Roseanne, Evan Almighty, and The Big Lebowski is only a minuscule number of his acting gigs throughout the years.       

Fan Choice for Phil Bushey:

Could good ole Charlie keep it together long enough to shoot a mini-series?  Maybe si maybe no.  Phil Bushey would course through his veins, so to speak. Charlie "The Chef" Sheen, nice ring to it.  Credits include:  Two and a Half,  Men, Wall Street, Platoon    

Fan Choice for Julia Shumway:
Julianne Moore would make an excellent Julia Shumway.  When I originally read the description she sort of came to my mind, so great suggestion.  Her intensity on screen would be great for this role.  Hope to see her under the dome.  Credits include: Hannibal, The Hours, Psycho

Fan Choice for Junior Rennie:

Ryan Hurst could play the dirtied Junior Rennie with ease.  I say YES!  Thanks for this choice.  Credits include:  Sons of Anarchy  Harry "Opie" Winston (personally love him in this role)

Fan Choice for Rusty Everette:

Jason Bateman is the bomb!   He is so charasmatic, loveable, funny and a pleasure to watch.  He could play the role of Rusty Everette well..  I really hope he is considered for the role of Rusty.  Credits:  Silver Spoons, Little House on the Prarie, ( from back in the day), Arrested Development, and Hancock

Question of the Day #52: Has anyone taken any photos to help Build Stephen King's Empire?

Yes we have taken some, we drove a short distance out of our way to get 2 photos so far, one of a restaurant the other of a car dealer (no, it wasn't Big Jim Rennie's but would love to find one of those).  The captions are going to be the tough part for me.  Since he is providing some signed books for this contest, we are going to try to provide as many pictures as possible of our nearby area.  I've been searching for churches, schools, streets, and just about anything that qualifies.  What about you?
