Another Made-in-Maryland Movie: Olivia Wilde and Sam Rockwell to Star in “Better Living Through Chemistry”



Actress Olivia Wilde will star in "Better Living Through Chemistry"


Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde and Ray Liotta will come to Maryland in the coming months to begin shooting the film “Better Living Through Chemistry,” a movie about a pharmacist’s affair with one of his trophy-wife customers. Filming of the comedy will take place in Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties, Baltimore City and the Eastern Shore. The production has the potential to create 340 jobs for local crew, actors and extras.

The film will be co-directed by Geoff Moore and David Posamentier from their script, and will be produced by Felipe Marino and Joe Neurauter of Occupant Entertainment (“The Wackiness”, “Peep World”).

“Better Living Through Chemistry” is the latest in a series of recent projects that are choosing to film in Maryland. Last month, the Netflix series “House of Cards” began shooting in various locations around the State and independent film “Jamesy Boy” wrapped production.  The HBO film “Game Change” which also shot in Maryland, premiered on the cable network in March, and HBO series “VEEP” premiered in April to rave reviews.


“House of Cards” Needs Some Baltimore Extras to Look Like Washingtonians


Netflix’s House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey, just put out a call for extras to portray Hill staffers, politicians, lobbyists and wealthy-looking Washington men and women.  The series starts filming in and around Baltimore any day now.

“The ‘wealthy-looking Washington men and women’ might be a problem. But I am guessing we might be able to scrounge up a few of them in Roland Park or Hunt Valley,” jokes Baltimore Sun TV Critic David Zurawik.

See the AFTRA-SAG hotline website for more information on how to apply.  David Zurawik also posts on his Z on TV blog more information about applying directly to the Central Casting Washington, D.C. office.

Who knew there was a Central Casting Washington, D.C. office?  There’s a Baltimore office, too!
