According to the Huntington Herald-Dispatch, my opportunity to be a star has finally arrived! A local, independently produced film will soon be shooting in the area, and the producers need talent. Auditions will be held at the Cabell County Public Library on Saturday, from 11:30am until 4pm.
I gotta memorize some dialogue!
According to the press release, lots of male actors are needed. When I read this, my first thought was that the film may be a porn production. I'm no Scrooge, so that didn't dampen my enthusiasm too much. (Although I'll admit auditioning in the buff on the Reference Floor of the library is a little off-putting.) But upon further reading, the casting call sounds legit. The producers need:
- Male lead, aged 18-34. Described as being a very physical role, involving a lot of running, action, etc.
Well, I wouldn't want a lead in my first gig as an actor anyway.
- Several 18-35 year old males (more physical roles, all of which involve running)
- One 35-55 year old male, described as a "crime boss type."
Let's see...[ahem] "You dirty rat! You'll never take me alive, you dirty rat!!" Nah, can't pull that off either.
- One 25-35 year old male, a "police officer type."
As I said, I know what I'm gonna be doing on Saturday. The lawn needs a good trim.
