“Boardwalk Empire” is beginning production of the new season and is looking to cast some kids who can work as photo doubles on the show. This is for work this week in the New York City area.
HBO announced the show would be coming back for a fifth and final season shortly following the show taking home 5 Emmys. Michael Lombardo, HBO’s President of Programming said “Thanks to Terry Winter, Martin Scorsese, Tim Van Patten, Howard Korder and their stellar team, ‘Boardwalk Empire’ remains in a class by itself.”
