we're also seeing the colors are passed their peak in the poconos and other areas up toward new england, right around the peak around here. temperatures in the low to mid-50s aside from the poconos which are 47 degrees in mount pocono right now. and the ocean temperature has really dropped, down to 53 degrees, down almost 10 degrees in just a couple days. we're still getting pretty strong winds in the poconos. 38-mile-an-hour wind gust, but 20 to 30-mile-an-hour gusts elsewhere across the area, and philadelphia international not reporting a gust. so it's kind of a sign of things to come. it's nowhere near as windy as yesterday. we had gusts well over 40 miles an hour in philadelphia. in the new york city area, the gusts were over 50, and in new england it was even stronger than that. plus snow. well, for us we see temperatures going up near 60 degrees with breezy conditions, but remember the sun is setting now right around 5:00 or a little bit

11:36 am
one blocking it. >> reporter: at this point for all sides, the game plan is really just to get out the vote. in fact, there's been a lot heavier early voting in key states this time around than we saw four years ago during the midterms. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. and on election day tomorrow, you can count on nbc 10 for early returns. you can count on us for reaction and also live reports, and you can also learn more about the candidates and the issue that is will be decided at our website at turning now to the atlantic city casino crisis. trage ma hall workers held a march this morning in an effort to keep their jobs. >> save the taj. >> save our jobs. >> about 1,000 employees have signed a petition calling on the mayor to do everything possible to keep the casino open. the casino has threatened to close in december if it doesn't get $175 million package from atlantic city and the state government. four casinos have already gone out of business and the

catcher." >> what do you hope to achieve, mark? >> steve carell plays john dupont. the movie stars mark ruffalo and channing tatum. and dave sha resulchultz's wido will attend the premiere. you were a consultant for this movie, nancy. tell me what that was like. it must have been difficult for to you sort of reopen an old wound like this. >> i think i'm always there. you know what happened in '96 is still with me every day, but this was a nice opportunity also to help ruffalo show what kind of person dave was. bennett miller took an extreme amount of time making this scene real. it's real wrestling in the film and mark ruffalo took on everything the way dave picked up a cup, the way he walked. it was nice to be able to share my husband's memory. >> how does ruffalo learn how
11:46 am
your late husband picked up the cup? >> i was on the set three or four times during the shooting but was able to meet with him and provide home movies and bennett miller had lots of film from the life on the farm so every actor could learn how to get into those character approximates. >> tell me what people will learn about your late husband from watching this movie. >> i think they're going to learn the sport of wrestling and its struggles, that it's a more complicated and technical sport than they knew before, that my husband was a kind and generous man, and that the life at the fox catcher estate was an interesting and tumultuous time. >> steve carell's work was quite a departure from his previous work but he refused to meet with you. why was that? >> we met outside the set. but each of the characters when they got into makeup, they stayed in character the whole
11:47 am
time we were filming. they really stayed there the weeks that we filmed. steve would get up at 4:00 in the morning, begin the process. once he got into that, he really stayed in that character and john dupont was a very uncomfortable social person, so he really recreated what dupont would do, which was not be gregarious, not be in the middle of the mix. >> i heard you say that dupont fancied himself as an athlete. apparently he was a pretty good athlete -- >> he was a decent athlete. >> but this gave him a chance to really be around elite athletes that -- >> many times, yes. swimming, pentathlon. he helped a lot of different athletes and in the end wrestling. it allowed him to not only be involved in the program but olympic team captain and things like that. he really got to hang out with elite level athletes. >> i was a cub reporter here in 1996 when the story happened. so there's a lot that we know about the story, but tell me what the movie might reveal that we might not know when we go see
11:48 am
this movie "fox catcher." >> i'm working on a documentary right now, too, that's going to be out and it's going to be on the farm and share some intricate and new pieces of information. i think that they'll learn more about that this was just three characters really struggling to make these relationships work. >> how have you handled the 18 years, nearly 20 years that have lapsed? how has your life been affected through all of this? >> you probably know from originally when you were reviewing the story i think, but wrestling is a very tight community. all over the world we have friends that we stay in touch. really the wrestling community helped me face the challenges and raise my children. >> it's been a blessing for us that you came by here. >> very nice to see you back in philadelphia. >> "fox catcher" opens on friday, november 21st. thank you so much for coming by, nancy schultz.
