NOTES:

Being a stand-in is an important job that requires you to know and duplicate every action that your character does, so we are especially interested in people with prior experience.

If you’ve never done it before, but have worked several times on set, we might still consider you, if your sizes very closely match our actors and you can follow detailed instructions.

If you don’t fit these specs, but have done lots of stand-in work in the past, you may still complete the application form. Let us know that you are applying for future stand-in work.

PS: If you previously filled out our Extras Submission Form, we already have your information on file and will be in contact if you are the right type for one of the roles we are casting. No need to complete a new application. Thanks!

Please, no phone calls or drop-by visits. No other roles are available at this time. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates and future casting calls.

Casting Call: Persians, Mountain Bikers, Hipsters for New HBO Series

by admin

For Immediate Release
July 10, 2017

PORTLAND CASTING COMPANY SEEKING PERSIANS, MOUNTAIN BIKERS, AND HIPSTERS TO WORK AS EXTRAS ON HBO SERIES

Untitled Alan Ball HBO drama series returns to Portland July 17-21, 2017.

 

(PORTLAND, ORE). Cast Iron Studios announced today that it is seeking experienced mountain bikers, and people of Persian descent to work as background on Alan Ball’s new HBO drama series.

The mountain bikers should be 20s-30s, with a fit, athletic build appropriate for extreme sports, and be able to bring their own mountain bike, vehicle with bike rack, and cycling shoes to set, if cast.

“They will not be cycling during the shoot,” says Casting Director Lana Veenker. “Instead, they will be seen post-race, as if they had been cycling. The stylists may even pretty them up with a bit of mud and dirt, to make it look like they were riding.”

The Portland-based casting company is also seeking extras of Persian descent for a night shoot. “We’ll mostly be hiring men and women ages 30-50, but we’ll also need some Persian children, young adults, and seniors in the mix,” Veenker stated.

The series will shoot scenes in the Portland area July 17-21, 2017. Cast Iron Studios, which also cast “Grimm” and currently “The Librarians,” is handling the local principal and extras casting.

Asked if any other background positions are available, Veenker said that Portland hipster types are always in demand for this show. “We’re constantly combing our database for great beards and mustaches,” she noted.

The positions are non-union, and pay starts at minimum wage (8-hour guarantee, plus overtime) for general extras, to between $100-$150/day for other background positions. Background performers can also earn bumps for the use of their cars, bicycles, pets, etc. Plus, minimum wage just went up to $11.25/hour on July 1st!

Those interested in working as extras on the show can submit online via the company’s extras submission form. Deadline is Wednesday, July 19th, 2017.

NOTE: This casting call is for non-union background performers only.

Please only submit if you fit the specs above. No other background or principal (speaking) roles are available at this time.

There is no charge to be listed in the company’s database, and no fees will be charged to extras who take part in the show.

For additional information, visit castironstudios.com.

No phone calls, please.

 

Updated 7/10/17 at 5:02 PM to clarify that all above roles are background, not principal roles! Thanks!
