Gwyneth Paltrow filming documentary in Barbados

UPDATE: Latest photo* from Vogue Italy, but no information on the subject of the documentary. Ooooooh… I think the camera is worth more than all our homes put together!

What is the documentary about?

The celebrity news sites are all abuzz with photos of Gwyneth Paltrow on the beach in Barbados where, according to Popeater.com, she is filming a documentary.

Marvelous! But after a searching on the net for a half hour I’m still no closer to knowing what the documentary is about or where on the island it is being filmed.

Can BFP’s readers offer any information?

Bajan in Hollywood Sean Michael Field lands another major commercial – AAMCO Auto Repair

Talent, hard work paying off for a nice guy in a tough business

Another big company has turned to Hollywood-based Sean Michael Field to bring their image to America. AAMCO, one of the largest auto repair networks in the USA is “fielding” (ed: couldn’t help it!) a new television commercial on June 1st starring our friend.

We’ve been following Sean’s acting career since he made the girls swoon with his HIV condom advert a few years back. (Shona just walked by, saw what I wrote and is starting to giggle because she remembers the commercial.)

I don’t know much about the movie or television business, but if I look at Sean Field’s work over the past few years the word that comes to mind is “versatile”. He takes a variety of rolls and excels at each one right from macho sexy, to romantic, to a bit of comedy (his KFC commercial) to sinister bad guy.

According to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), Sean has a couple of new movies on the go too.

It’s so good to see a truly decent guy doing well and progressing in a tough town like Hollywood. We look forward to seeing his Sean’s AAMCO commercial soon. We’ll let you know if we find it online next month.

As an aside, it doesn’t happen too often that Barbados Free Press scoops Ian Bourne and The Bajan Reporter on an entertainment industry story but it looks like we’ve done it this time!   🙂

Bajan in Hollywood: Sean Michael Field continues to land movie roles

Actor Sean Field - Doing well in Hollywood. Making Bajans proud!

We reported on Bajan-in-Hollywood Sean Field in August of 2009 when he landed a major commercial spot with KFC – Kentucky Fried Chicken as The Grill Sergeant. (That KFC story was originally broken by our friend Ian Bourne at his old Bajan Reporter blog. Check it out here.)

Prior to that in July of 2009 Sean stopped by Barbados Free Press and disagreed with our criticism of Rihanna. At the time, he wrote…

“And yes, Rihanna is a superstar. Living here in LA all I have to do is mention Barbados and every person says “Rihanna”. That wasn’t the case a few years ago.

Does it mean that she is a role model for children in the country? NO. That is what parents are for. And in Barbados we have plenty of those to go around, along with aunties and uncles. So at the end of the day does it matter that she has a mohawk? NO. Does it matter that someone at BFP doesn’t like it? NO. That’s their opinion and they’re entitled to it.”

We were looking at the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) the other day and plugged in Sean’s name and were pleased to see that he continues to land acting roles in film productions.

If you head over to Sean’s website you can sample some of his work that isn’t even mentioned on IMDB.

Good luck, Sean… Keep on hitting!
