“The Road” starring Viggo Mortensen shoots in Oregon in May
April 27, 2008
PORTLAND, ORE. Lana Veenker Casting announced today that it is seeking a pregnant Charlize Theron lookalike for “The Road,” a new feature film directed by John Hillcoat and based on Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name.
Casting Director Lana Veenker says that the pregnant woman is needed to work as a body double for Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, slated to play actor Viggo Mortensen’s pregnant wife. “The producers prefer to use an actual pregnant woman, rather than put a fake belly on the actress. But it’s important that she resemble Charlize in height, weight and hair color.”
Caucasian women with blonde to dirty blonde hair, height 5’9” to 5’11”, who are around four months pregnant and who normally wear a dress size six or eight are encouraged to apply. There is no charge to be considered for the role and no nudity will be required. The woman chosen will work for two or three days in mid-May.
Women who fit the requirements should submit their photos and contact details as soon as possible to Lana Veenker Casting by emailing Eryn Goodman at talent(at)slateplease.com.
