Actor Josh Duhamel asks to use UND logo in movie

GRAND FORKS – A University of North Dakota logo may be popping up in another one of Josh Duhamel’s movies.

Producers for the movie “Strings,” tentatively scheduled to be released in 2014, called UND this week and asked for an image that it could place on a wall in one of Duhamel’s scenes.

UND sent a couple of images that producers could use.

“We said, ‘If you can use them, great,’ ” said Peter Johnson, the head of university relations.

Duhamel, a Minot native and a UND fan, has found ways to get the school’s logo in movies before.

In the 2010 movie “Life As We Know It,” Duhamel asked producers if he could wear the Fighting Sioux logo in the movie. They gave it the OK and he wore a Fighting Sioux T-shirt.
