CAST IRON STUDIOS ANNOUNCES OPEN CASTING CALL FOR NETFLIX SERIES
“American Vandal” will shoot its second season in the Rose City, and needs high-school students to fill numerous speaking roles.
PORTLAND, ORE. Last year’s breakout hit, American Vandal, is headed to Portland to shoot its second season, and Cast Iron Studios is seeking young people, ages 14 to 22, to portray high-school students in the popular Netflix series.
The series—a co-production between Funny Or Die, CBS Television Studios, and 3 Arts Entertainment—will begin shooting in the Portland area in mid-February. Cast Iron Studios, which also handled Grimm, The Librarians, and Here and Now, is in charge of Oregon principal casting.
“There are a number of small, speaking roles that producers are hoping to hire locally,” said Casting Director Eryn Goodman. “The show truly needs all types, shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and abilities. They want to reflect a real high-school look: braces, pimples, and all.”
Goodman stated that, while acting experience is helpful, it’s not a requirement. Instead, “interested parties would do well to watch Season One, to get an idea of the tone and humor of the show.”
An open casting call will take place this Saturday, January 6, 2018 in Portland, and is by appointment only. Those interested in auditioning should follow the link below to reserve their time slot.
Cast Iron Studios is committed to diverse, inclusive casting. There is no charge to create a basic profile in the company’s database, and no fees will be charged to talent who take part in the show. For more information, visit castironstudios.com.
