Want to help re-enact a piece of American history?
Marinella Hume Casting is seeking African-American men and women to play background actors in a scene set during a Civil Rights march on Washington D.C. during the narrative for "The Glorias: A Life on the Road." The movie, which stars Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Bette Midler and Janelle Monae, is based on feminist icon Gloria Steinem’s bestselling memoir, “My Life on the Road.” It tells the story of her itinerant childhood’s influence on her life as a writer, activist and organizer for women’s rights worldwide. The scene most likely is a re-creation of a portion of the 1963 March on Washington, which featured Martin Luther King Jr.'s now iconic "I Have a Dream" speech, and included more than 250,000 people gathering in front of the Lincoln Memorial to draw attention to the Civil Rights movement.
According to the casting call, no experience is necessary and they are looking for men, women and children of all ages; but African-American men and women college-aged to 30-years-old are encouraged to reach out for a role. The opening casting call will take place on Sunday, Feb. 24 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the International F&AM Masons at 912 Drayton Street. The casting call also mentions these need to be fresh faces — no one who has previously done work for the movie.
If interested, but unable to attend the casting call, submit your name, age, height, weight, sizes, a couple recent photos and a contact number to Glorias.MHC@gmail.com with the subject line, "FRESH FACE."
