Get Cast on Lee Daniel’s Music Drama Star – ATL


Looking for a small role on FOX’s new TV show “Star?”

If you live in the Atlanta area you may just be in luck because the show has been releasing cast calls for many small, extras roles. Georgia’s Central Casting office is now taking submissions from area locals who would love to get cast as a background actor on “Star” season 2.  The show begins filming in the Atlanta area later this summer and Central casting is now accepting talent submissions for background actors, featured extras, photo doubles and stand-ins.   Central has been releasing cast calls for their initial upcoming needs and are holding open calls at their offices for Star as well as other TV shows and movies that are now filming in Atlanta.

FOX’s Star comes from the man behind FOX’s other popular music drama, Empire, Academy Award-nominated Lee Daniels (Empire, Precious, Lee Daniels The Butler).  The series is a rags to riches story of three young women with dreams of stardom.   Star  focuses on three girls trying to break into the music industry by forming a girl group.  The show has tapped some newcomers, some of which were cast from last years open auditions to find unknown actresses to play the girls. The cast also includes some well known names which include Queen Latifah, Benjamin Bratt and Lenny Kravitz. Newcomers, Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady, were tapped to fill the lead roles in Star as the 3 members of the girl group.

In the show, Star Davis played by Jude Demorest, is a 17-year-old girl who had a rough upbringing and along with her sister, Simone, played by Brittany O’Grady, has her sights set on becoming a music star. The sisters hook up with the wealthy daughter of a well known singer, Alexandra Crane, played by Ryan Destiny, to form their girl group.  Lenny Kravitz plays Alexandra’s father.   The girls move to Atlanta, Georgia and move in with Queen Latifah’s character, Carlotta Brown , who helps them go after their dreams.

Please note that the show films in Atlanta and you must be local to the Atlanta area in order to be considered. Do not apply if you do not live in Atlanta or the surrounding areas.
