Rosalind Helderman

First Sissy Spacek, now Tim Reid?

Okay, she's the Oscar-award winning star of "Carrie."

But Reid appeared on "WKRP in Cincinnati" and "Sister, Sister." More recently, he has been directing a documentary called "Keepers of the Flame" about the Virginia State Capitol and the state's Democratic history, and will appear Monday with Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) as the governor signs two bills offering tax credits to Virginia movie-makers.

Spacek came to Richmond to pitch the same idea with Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) and lawmakers during the legislative session.

Reid, who founded New Millenium Studios in Petersburg, will join McDonnell for the event at Richmond's historic St. John's Church (where Patrick Henry delivered his "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" speech. The church will also host a screening of the documentary.
