Casting Consulting – Site Coming Soon
History Channel is casting several small roles for a documentary about the history of everyday things*. The project is non-union and there is a $100 stipend for your participation if selected. Please see the brief breakdowns of roles needed below. To be considered, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the role in CAPS as the subject line. Please send both a headshot and a recent non-professional picture so we can see your current look/hair. Make sure you provide a phone number to reach you. Auditions held Weds, 6/22 in Times Sq. There are two types of roles-
DRAMATIC ROLES – These will shoot in New Jersey (TBD) for a few hours per scene sometime in the week of 6/27 and 7/1. These are short scenes with little or no dialogue so actors who can improv and pantomime are best!
MYSTERIOUS WOMAN – 30’s – Kind of an Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction type, perhaps with longer hair. Willowy figure, able to cast an evil glare!
JEFF – Average looking guy to play ‘best friend’ character. Late 20’s-early 30’s, all races. Average height, average build, cute, but not drop dead handsome. Must know how to play pool
LUCY THE FLIRTY BLOND WOMAN – Attractive woman in her 30’s with blond hair who can be flirty and sexy.
JANE THE SEDUCTIVE ASIAN WOMAN – Attractive Asian woman in her 30’s who can be seductive and flirty.
CUTE GIRLS – 20’s-30’s, all races for various scenes, several roles- could be a shopping woman, a single babe who is the object of flirtation, again, there are several roles for this!. (We also have one role for a cute woman with a small cute dog- Frenchie, Boston Terrier, Yorkie, etc. so if you have a little canine actor friend you can bring along, please note in your email and send a picture of the little fella as well).
BULLY – Male in his 30’s race open, big (6’2″ and up is good!), tough, burly with a mean looking face.
BLUE COLLAR WORKERS – Males, 35+ who can play a slightly comical character carrying a ladder- pretty simple!
DISGRUNTLED PICK-UP TRUCK DRIVER – We are looking for a man who has a pick-up truck and can be disgruntled- pretty easy.
RECREATION SCENES – These will shoot in a Brooklyn Studio for a few hours per scene sometime in the week of 7/5-7/9. For the recreations, we will be shooting in full costume against a green screen, and the actors will not move, the camera will! Must be able to hold strong poses and facial expressions for several minutes.
ENGLISH PEASANTS – Early 1800’S – Males and Females, 30+ of all body types and great expressive, perhaps ugly faces to play peasants. This segment is about the early days of sewage! Should be able to make good ‘gross-out’ faces. Think Dickens or Victor Hugo lower-class characters.
TEEN BOYS – 1700’s- Need Males, age 14-18 with shaggy or long hair. Youthful face who looke like they could be from England.
SHADOWY FIGURE – A tall, slender male figure who would make for a menacing silhouette- age/race open, but height at least 6’3″
MYSTERIOUS FRENCHMEN – Tall thin male with prominent nose, age 30’s-40’s. This character is from the 16oo’s Should be able to look mysterious and shifty!
GOVERNOR – 1700’s – Male – 40’s+ – rotund, dark or greying hair and beard, goofy oblivious expression.
GOVERNOR’S WIFE – 1700’s – Female, late 30’s-40’s, long hair, buxom, regal snooty face
SHAMMAT – female, late 20’s-30’s, a Middle Eastern Seductress, long dark hair and a seductive look! Please note this scene would include TASTEFUL partial nudity- on camera, you would only show you bare back, but you would be topless on set.
*I am also casting a documentary about the history of cocaine- it is a dicey subject matter but I may need some extras for this as well. please email separately if interested in this project with COCAINE in the subject of your email.
