As the rumors continue to fly, Fox 12‘s Sophie Soong dropped in on Eryn Goodman of Cast Iron Studios to hear her thoughts on why the popular MTV series might be considering the Rose City for its home base next season.

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – It’s becoming more and more common to see Pacific Northwest landmarks in TV shows and movies — Portland’s list of silver and small screen credentials is growing: Untraceable, Gone, Leverage and Portlandia, just to name a few.

“I think they help put us on the map a little bit, in the bigger picture in the future and what not. And ever since having television shows come here, it’s really picked up a lot,” Eryn Goodman of Cast Iron Studios said.

“We have so many kinds of locations. You can shoot ocean, you can shoot the desert, you can shoot the Gorge, you can shoot the city, we can look like a lot of different places which is fantastic,” she explained.

And that could be why MTV is possibly thinking of putting its next season of The Real World here.
