Tammy Dombeck, the popular "Gridlock Buster" who left KXAS/Channel 5 in 2012, has begun the New Year with an announcement that she'll be in the movie Unlimited.

"I wanted you all to know that I am going to be in a movie! It's a small role in a cool movie coming out starring the awesome actor Fred Thompson!," Dombeck announced via Facebook. She also sent a trailer, which you can view here.
The movie (filmed in my hometown of El Paso) is about a brilliant student whose life goes awry when he gets a call from an old professor who has discovered a breakthrough in a device that would create unlimited energy. The student ends up hiding out in an orphanage in Mexico, on the run from a dangerous drug cartel.

As you can tell if you've watched the trailer, the movie has Christian overtones, which is not surprising considering that it comes from writer-director Nathan Frankowski, who directed 2008's Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed and executive producer and inspirational speaker Dr. Harold Finch, whose relationship with God you can read more about in the bio linked here.
Awaiting a little more info from Dombeck on just what her role is (if she's in the trailer, I couldn't spot her). Will update when I hear from her.
UPDATE: Well, no wonder Dombeck's not in the trailer -- she just e-mailed to say she hasn't shot her part yet. She'll play a news anchor. Shoots her part Friday.
