For the past few years we’ve combined the birthday celebration with the Mark Salling board over at FanForum and for the 3rd year in a row it’s been a success! Head on over to check out the thread (click the banner above) and help us spread the love for Mark on his special day. The following blurb is a part of the thread but it doesn’t hurt for you to see it twice.
It’s well known that aside from music one of Mark’s biggest passions is wildlife. The man is as I like to call him a certified bird nerd, but in all seriousness he has never shied away from the fact that he loves nature and he is more than willing to put in his time and money to help however he can. One project that he has been commited to is Wildlife Care of Socal (formerly Wildlife Care of Ventura),he’s done two PSA for them, the most recent was released in May and he’s volunteered with them as well. For the last few years fans asked Mark what they could do for him on his birthday and he tends to send them to the Wildlife Care of Socal website so we figured to add a link here as well. If you’d like to learn more about the cause that’s near and dear to Mark go to Wildlife Care of SoCal browse and if you can make a donation. You may just see a familiar face while you’re there. ;)
Happy birthday Mark, cheers to another year around the sun!
With Rocky Road premiering in just a few short weeks, UPtv is giving Mark Salling fans a chance to win some pretty cool prizes. The grand prize winner gets a guitar that was signed by Mark, 5 other lucky winners get an autographed copy of the Rocky Road script. Now like with any contest, there are some rules so here is a run down of the basics. You must be 18 years or older to win, so all you young ones out there butter up your parents, you have to be a U.S. resident in any of the 50 states, and it’s only one entry allowed her person. So click this link HERE and it’ll take you to the entry form over at UPtv. Good luck to all and can’t wait to see who the lucky winner of the guitar is. Remember you can see Mark take on the role of Harrison Burke in Rocky Road on National Ice Cream day, July 20th on UPtv Network.
Just one month until National Ice Cream Day! Okay, I only kid, well sort of. National Ice Cream Day is on July 20th, but what is more important that day is that we will finally be able to see Mark take on the role of Harrison Burke! Just about a year ago we learned about Mark signing on to film Rocky Road and hear all about him heading over to Canada to film, it’s been a steady flow of information since then. Now the wait is just about over, and in just one months time we get to see the final product. Rocky Road will be airing on UP Network so check to see if it’s a part of your cable package! You can check out the gallery for episode stills and there is a little behind the scenes video that you can catch HERE. Mark talks about why he chose to take on this role and you get a few more clips that weren’t in the trailer. Enjoy and remember July 20th is the big day!
It was all a flurry or tweets on Tuesday after, Soccer Aid announced Mark as the newest celebrity team member, one that even included a confirmation tweet from a certain publicist, THANKS JANICE! But all that aside what the heck is Soccer Aid and why is Mark involved? Well Soccer Aid is what you get when you combine celebrities and charity, namely UNICEF, it started in 2006 with UK UNICEF ambassador, Robbie Williams and it has continued with a match every two years. The teams consist of 12 celebrities and 6 legends (former professionals) and they’re split England v. Rest of the World. You can check out how the previous matches have played out on here on the UNICEF website, as well as to some of the basic rules for the games.
The 2014 match couldn’t have come at a better time, with the World Cup just around the corner you can see Mark and many other celebs take the field on June 8th, 2014 at the legendary Old Tafford Stadium in Manchester. If you’re lucky enough you can buy tickets to the game here and money raised through profits from ticket sales and donations made by viewers during the match will go to UNICEF’s invaluable work helping children around the world. The game will be available for viewing live on ITV1 and online and prior to the event Cat Deeley is set to host a preview on ITV1 at 6pm Friday, June 6. So get ready to see Mark take the field for a great cause and what hopes to be a great game!
If you’d like to see the rest of the celebrities as well as the legends slated to join Mark you can visit here and get excited.
As a girl who played soccer and loves sports in general and who has fondness for Mark this has me crazy excited, can’t wait to see how it all turns out, just two weeks to go!
Since filming wrapped on Rocky Road it’s been fairly quiet on the movie front but with some time and a day off I bring you all the first look at Mark’s latest role. Thanks to eOne Entertainment we have an updated synopsis, a still, movie poster and the trailer! The movie is set to air in June on UP Network. Click the link -> Rocky Road
I for one am pleasantly surprised and cannot wait for this. The story looks to be interesting and it’s going to fun to see Mark take on a new role. I like what I’ve seen and now I just await it’s release.
UP Network recently had it’s upfronts and where they unveiled their line up for the rest of 2014, they mentioned that this film is one of the 9 originals they plan to air from now to the end of the year. All good things ahead! Now if we could just get word on if Mark penned a song for this and or if/when it’ll be released . Until next time folks ;)
Okay so I think I’m really loving Mark having the Camp Coyote youtube page because this is the second video he’s posted in just as many weeks. No music was posted but he says it’s a sneak peek to his upcoming appearance in the Spiderman Basketball youtube series. The series is done by Grayson Boucher or as @Professor12 we’ve seen him referred to over the last few weeks, Boucher is an insanely talented streetball (basketball) player. The series is one of the ways he showcases what he can do on the court, he has had other guest stars in the series including Clippers, Jamal Crawford. Last month, a producer for the series tweeted that he had wrapped a day working with Mark and there my eagerness began. We’ve never really seen Mark ‘play’ basketball he’s tweeted/talked about the sport and we’ve seen a number of videos were he messes around, so it was all up in the air as to what this guest spot would entail. As a girl who loves her sports, I was nervous, but fear not because the sneak peek let us know the man can hit a shot and dribble a ball, is it the level of the Professor, probably not but now we must wait until the next video. Until then we can enjoy Captain America showing us his skills on the court.
Okay, we’ve waited and waited and WAITED. And it was more than worth it. If you haven’t clicked the link for the video above you’ve missed out. Yesterday at 4pm PST Mark introduced us to his latest project, Camp Coyote. This is everything that you could want from Mark, it is 100% him. As a fan I really couldn’t ask for more, well I could, the greedy side of me wanted an album and maybe a few shows but I am more than happy to get this. This video and song is Mark showing us who he is and having no regrets, he’s having fun doing what he loves. All I know is that I’m more than happy to take this ride with Mark. Watch the sawesomeness that is Camp Coyote’s Electric Hoverboard and just bask in Mark’s creativity, I bet you’re humming this the time the video is over ;) Oh and even better he’s says there is more to come!
