100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Witherspoon Watch: Do you know when Reese is coming to Bend?

Posted By on Fri, Oct 18, 2013 at 1:39 PM

Do you have a beard, tattoos and that "North West" counterculture look? Dreadlocks perhaps? Do you own a pair of pre-1995 Keen boots? Do you wear flannel? If so, Reese Witherspoon has a job for you. You can be an extra in her new movie "Wild."


The film—based on Cheryl Strayed's memoir about her 1000 mile hike on the Pacific Crest Trail after her mother's death—is scheduled to film in Bend and Ashland this month. Below is an excerpt from the casting call from Extras Only.

IN BEND we are looking for people 25-50 years old. Especially needing men with beards and shaggy hair to play hikers and people who have vehicles (cars, trucks, jeeps,etc) that are pre 1995. Filming will be in and around the Bend area in early to mid October and people will be needed 1-3 days.

Here's a link to the full casting call for extras.

Other websites confirm that filming in Ashland will take place Oct. 22, at Papaya, the post office on Lithia Way and The Breadboard Restaurant.

No news on when or where the filming in Bend will take place, if you have more information, please, share it with us! WE WANT TO KNOW WHERE WITHERSPOON IS! Really, we'd just like to tell her how much we liked her in Walk the Line.
