ABC’s “Nashville” casting call for a few hundred paid extras – Nashville, TN


The casting team for ABC’s “Nashville” is looking to fill some large crowd scenes filming next week and have put out a call for paid extras in TN. This is a concert scene and looking for types that would look like they belong at a Juliette Barnes concert. Ages 18 through 40 are welcome to apply. Nashville locals only please.

The show is about 2 women, both country music superstars. Connie Britton plays the role of Rayna Jaymes, a country music legend who is now aging and seeing her popularity suffer. Hayden Panettiere plays rising star Juliette Barnes whose new found popularity threatens Rayna Jaymes.

Conflicts get more heated as the legendary Rayna must take a back seat to Juliette when she is talked into going on tour with the young country singer… to open for her.

The scene filming next week is that of a Juliette Barnes concert. Besides the concert goers, there are also other roles to fill such as bartenders, waitresses, arena staff, security and bar patrons.

The casting directors for “Nashville” are On Location Casting and they would like those submitting to first register with them (see below for instructions).
