New movie “Hidden Figures” filming in the Atlanta area is looking for military types
“Hidden Figures” has some scenes filming in the Atlanta area later this month and is looking to cast background actors who can pull off a military look. MHC in Atlanta is seeking Caucasian, male extras between the ages of 18 and 55 to play military men. The movie’s casting directors would love to hear from men with real military experience in the area, however, they are also considering non-military men for the roles as well. Talent selected to fill the roles will be required to attend a fitting in the Atlanta area tomorrow. Must be clean shaven and also willing to get a PAID haircut.
The FOX studios movie focuses on the space race of the 50s and the African American scientists who worked behind the scenes to launch the first American into orbit. The movie currently being called “Hidden Figures” (AKA “To The Moon and Back“) is based on Margot Lee Shetterly’s book “Hidden Figures: The Story of the African-American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race.” The movie adaptation focuses on African American mathematician, Katherine Johnson. Johnson is played by Taraji P. Henson who recently got a Golden Globe for her work as Cookie on the FOX hit TV series, “Empire.”
According to Variety, the movie’s story centers on Kathrine Johnson, who along with her colleagues Dorothy Vaughn and Mary Jackson, served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history, John Glenn’s historic launch into space. The three women crossed all gender, race and professional lines while embarking on the mission. John Glenn flew the Friendship 7 mission in 1962 which was the fist mission to successfully orbit the Earth and return home safely.
Please note that MHC (Marinella Hume) is only considering extras that live in or around the Atlanta area.
