A long time Jewett and Leon County resident will soon star in an upcoming Hollywood movie.
You might remember the 2012 film called Deep in the Heart.
It was the story of Dick Wallwrath, the owner of Champion Ranch near Centerville.

That film was made possible by California movie producer Jay Hoffman.
Wallwrath recently contacted his long time friend, James Duke of Jewett to tell him that Hoffman would soon be contacting him about a role in a new film, that would be dedicated to the life of George Jones.

Duke spent many years in Houston performing country music and has performed a number of tributes to the legendary country singer.

Jones, who died in April, was hoping to live to see the movie about his life and all he overcame.

Jerry's friends encouraged him to accept the opportunity and wish him luck on the new film.
