Well-known Hollywood stars hit Hattiesburg

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Don't be surprised if you run into notable Hollywood actors such as Emmy-Award winning John Cullum from "Mad Men" or William Sadler who is currently in "Iron Man 3" whilst strolling down your favorite Hub City street. 

Miles Doleac, who is a Hattiesburg native and Southern Miss professor, is directing and producing an indie film he wrote less than a year ago: "The Historian."

"It's surreal," Miles said.

"I was just writing this script less than a year ago, and now it's reality." 

Miles said he feels lucky to be working with such well-known and talented actors such as Sadler and Cullum.

Jillian Taylor who plays the starring role said she is enjoying the hospitality, friendliness, and food Mississippians have provided her with.

"When they told me I would be living in Mississippi for a month, I was so excited, because New York can be exhausting," Taylor said.

Jillian Taylor also gives credit to a local boutique for providing her with clothing tailored to fit The Historian's plot. 

Actors in "The Historian" are being clothed by Click Boutique and Gallery located on Front Street in Downtown Hattiesburg.
