ABC's Charlie's Angels Holds Yet Another Casting Call for South Florida Extras
Are you a toothy blond with straight up love for red, one-piece bathing suits? Or perhaps you're a sexy ninja-like brunette with dreams of launching your own clothing line at K-Mart. Or maybe, just maybe, despite the fact that you take life-threatening orders from some voice over the phone you're considered "the smart one."
If so, you need not apply. The Drew Barrymore-produced, Charlie's Angels 2.0 (and we're talking television, not the revamped '00s film) has already cast their 2011 angels: Annie Ilonzeh as Kate Prince - a former Miami cop, Rachael Taylor as Abigail "Abby" Sampson - a thief, and that chick from Friday Night Lights who dates Derek Jeter as Eve French - a street racer. See the video preview here.
All three ladies will be romping all around Miami this summer (the
locale for the reboot) toting guns and tight clothing and the casting
director needs YOU, yes YOU, people of Miami desperate enough for 15
seconds (that means you've got a whole 14:45 more to go!) of fleeting
fame! Because while all three girls romp around Miami toting guns and
tight clothing, some shleps need to be filmed standing in the background
(like YOU!) for authenticity.
An open casting call for extras/background talent (talents
include the ability to stand, walk, look human while out of focus, and
pantomime for 15 hours straight without complaining) will take place
this Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Ft. Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port Hotel.
They're looking for folks of all ethnicities and ages -- just so long
as you're 18 or older. You're advised to look your best (that means keep
your roller blades, neon bike shorts, and anything of the reeks of
Crockett or Tubbs at home) and to come with a head shot, pen, knowledge
of your wardrobe sizes (height, waist, inseam, shoe, etc.), and pictures
of yourself in a variety of outfits (fashion show!).
Ah, and if you feel
comfortable in a bathing suit, bring one of those things (Miami:
"Bathing suit, what is that? Oh, that thing that's supposed to cover up
my breasts while tanning? Silly TV") as well.
Charlie's Angels will air on ABC Thursday, September 22, 2011 -- the 35th anniversary of the debut of the original show.
Good luck! And here's hoping you don't end up wrestling an alligator in a bikini....unless that's on your bucket list.
