Last week The Hollywood Reporter released word that Disney Channel actor David Henrie would be starring in a new biographical drama about former President Ronald Reagan. Henrie, who has appeared mainly in TV shows like Wizards of Waverly Place, That’s So Raven, and How I Met Your Mother, will be playing Reagan in his youthful days before he went off to Hollywood to become a film actor. This will likely be only a small portion of the script which was penned by Howard Klausner (Space Cowboys, The Grace Card), but as of yet Henrie is the only definitive cast member that has been announced. A $25 million budget has been approved for the Indie film, which is being credited as the first legitimate biographical film about Ronald Reagan, who died after a long battle with Alzheimer’s in 2004. We’ll keep an eye on who is assigned to direct this one, as well as additional cast members.

Tight-Rope Walker Nik Wallenda Sets Records In Skies Over Chicago Skyline


Last weekend saw two world records set in the skies overlooking the Chicago River by stunt tight-rope walker Nik Wallenda. Wallenda first performed a 454-foot walk that was also at a 19-degree incline between the Marina Tower West and the Leo Burnett Building on Wacker Drive more than 500 feet above the river. For his second performance Wallenda then blindfolded himself and walked a 94-foot rope between the the two Marina Tower buildings, which was also more than 500 feet above the city streets. The stunt daredevil did both walks without a safety net or harness and the event was broadcast live on the Discovery Channel on Sunday night, even though the producers put a 10-second delay on the video in the event that Wallenda actually fell from the rope. Wallenda has also done walks across locations that include Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon. This stunt in Chicago has earned him two new world records, one for largest incline and the other for farthest distance blindfolded. If you missed the live broadcast you can check out Nik’s blindfold walk between the Marina Towers here on MADE.
