Casting Call in Pittsburgh for Small Extras Roles on WGN’s “Outsiders”

10/18/2016

Pittsburgh area casting directors are now casting for a fight club scene on WGN’s “Outsiders” TV series.

Outsiders” is now filming season 2 and looking for PA locals who would like to work as paid TV extras or featured extras. Currently, the show is looking for talent to fill some upcoming non speaking, extras roles.  The show is filming in Pittsburgh PA  and is only considering talent that is local to the Pittsburgh area.

Outsiders” is created and written by award-winning playwright Peter Mattei.  The Sony Pictures TV series is being executive produced by Mattei, Peter Tolan, Michael Wimer and Paul Giamatti.  Sony Pictures TV and Tribune Studios.  “The Outsiders” is set in in the Kentucky mountains (though it does film in Pennsylvania) and focuses on the Farrells, a family that lives in a rural area in the mountains and has done so for many generations. The family lives by their own set of rules and would like to keep it that way by separating themselves from modern society.  The clan finds themselves in a fight when the modern world encroaches on what has been their territory for over 200 years.  The families peace and lifestyle become threatened when interests down the mountain begin to threaten the land they occupy.   The family members have vowed to defend their homes in the Appalachian mountains and a battle is headed their way.

    Are adults auditioned for Disney and Nickelodeon roles? If so, where can these audition alerts be found? Your guidance is greatly appreciated.

      Adults are cast through agents for principle roles. Extras are cast through extras casting companies that Disney or Nickelodeon hire in the city the production is filming in. Disney holds open casting calls for kids and teens every now and then. They do an open call for kids yearly. Not so much for adult roles since they expect adult actors to go through agents.
