We have added photos of Rachel on set of the movie our gallery, thanks to my friend Claudia. Boston Globe is reporting that some members of the real-life Spotlight team will make a cameo in the movie.
The cast, which includes Liev Schreiber as then-Globe editor Marty Baron, Michael Keaton as Globe reporter-editor Walter V. Robinson, Rachel McAdams as former Globe reporter Sacha Pfeiffer, and Stanley Tucci as Mitchell Garabedian, the lawyer who represented several of the victims.
The real-life reporters and editors are expected to have cameos in the film, and several were invited to sit in the stands during the scene at Fenway. (In the movie, Thursday’s game takes place in July so extras were asked to wear Red Sox T-shirts or “muted tones, casual summer and nothing that has a year later than 2001.”)
“Spotlight” will continue to film in Boston until next week before heading to Toronto. The production is expected to wrap up early November. Reporter Sacha Pfeiffer, who Rachel will portray in the movie, shared some amazing on set photos on her official twitter account including one of Rachel which can be found behind the jump.

Variety broke the news that Rachel is closing in on the female lead of “True Detective“. HBO hasn’t confirmed the casting yet but it seems like it’s almost official. The following story has been reported:
Rachel McAdams is said to be locking down a lead role in season 2 of HBO’s “True Detective.”
Sources tell Variety HBO has offered McAdams the part opposite Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn. Taylor Kitsch is expected to land the role of the fourth lead.
Though HBO recently announced Farrell and Vaughn as the show’s leads, sources say fans could have a similar response to the female lead as they did to Matthew McConaughey’s part as Rust Cohle in season 1.
Several other actresses have been considered for the part, including Jessica Biel and Malin Akerman, but McAdams has been seen as the front-runner for the past few weeks. HBO could not immediately be reached for comment.
It came down to scheduling, as insiders tell Variety McAdams was about to start filming “Spotlight,” the drama revolving around the Catholic Church sex scandal uncovered by the Boston Globe, and it was unknown whether dates could be worked out for McAdams to do that film and “True Detective.” Sources say that in the past 24 hours, a deal was worked out where the actress could do both projects.
Justin Lin is set to direct the first two episodes of season 2. “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto has been busy writing the second season, which is set in California and revolves around three police officers and a career criminal who navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.
McAdams and Kitsch are expected to play cops alongside Farrell, while Vaughn plays the crime boss whose empire is threatened when his partner is murdered.
McAdams, repped by WME and Magnolia Entertainment, is already set to have a busy 2015 with the untitled Cameron Crowe pic and the Jake Gyllenhaal boxing pic “Southpaw” both bowing next year. She was most recently seen opposite Philip Seymour Hoffman in “A Most Wanted Man.”
Deadline is also confirming the story and saying Rachel is “in talks”:
It looks like the search for the female lead in the second season of True Detective is over. Rachel McAdams is the choice for the role and is in talks to join the lauded series when the HBO drama returns next year alongside Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, who have been confirmed, and Taylor Kitsch, who is not official yet.
Project Casting is reporting that there is an open casting call in Boston for “Spotlight“. Filming will start tomorrow (September 24) and will continue until October 1st in Boston. It was previously reported that the movie will film in Toronto from October 6th until November 2nd.
“Spotlight” starring starring Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, and Liev Schreiber is now casting extras in Boston, Massachusetts.
According to Deadline, “Spotlight” centers around the true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.
C.PCasting is looking for men and women of all ages and ethnicities who are interested in working as an extra in the movie to apply. Filming will start on September 24th and will continue until October 1st.
To audition for an extra role in the movie, check out the casting call details below:

HBO confirmed the casting of Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn in the much anticipated second season of “True Detective” earlier today. Rachel was mentioned for being in the running for the female lead, as we previously reported. There have been many rumors and reports about the casting including a recent one of 7 other actresses vying for a role in the series.
The Wrap is now reporting that Rachel is still “frontrunner” alongside Taylor Kitsch to join season 2 while Deadline is reporting that Rachel “continues to be mentioned”. Both sources mention a possible scheduling conflict for Rachel because she is doing a movie (and we assume they are referring to “Spotlight” which will reportedly start filming this week). The Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider is reporting the following on his official twitter account:
There will be several women in the show. This is the first of several announcements. Vaughn’s wife will be a significant character on the show & the actresses auditioning for the female lead (a cop) could segue to that role. HBO has always wanted a big star for the female lead. If Rachel McAdams wants to do it, she will, but there is a scheduling conflict. It looks like Keira’s next on the list, but she’s not being asked to read like the other 7 women who went in. 8 if you count Abigail Spencer
Let’s hope HBO will confirm the additional casting, including who will be the female lead, soon!
