Clearwater, Florida -- Tampa Bay goes Hollywood this weekend with the release of the new film "Dolphin Tale" starring Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick, Jr. and Ashley Judd.
"Dolphin Tale" is based on the true story of Winter the dolphin, from the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Winter lost her tail in a crab trap accident. She faced the very real possibility of dying until doctors fitted her with a prosthetic tail.
In the film, Harry Connick, Jr. plays Dr. Clay Haskett, director of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
10 News Morning Show anchor Ginger Gadsden sat down to talk to Connick about the film and about visiting the Tampa Bay area.
"Dolphin Tale" opens Friday in both 3D and 2D versions.
