Jack Black and Tim Robbins have a new series coming to HBO
HBO’s The Brink is about to start production in the L.A. area and Central Casting in Los Angeles will be having an open casting call for folks who would like to be extras on the show.
About 6 months ago, HBO announced that the Tim Robbins and Jack Black comedy was getting picked up to series. Looks like production is already on the way. Tim Robbins and Jack Black have had projects together in the past. In ’95 Robbins was the directors on the Jack Black film ‘Dead Man Walking’ and the two also worked together on the Tenacious D comedy.
According to Screenrant, the new series will be directed by Jay Roach ( Austin Powers Films) and producing the show is Jerry Weintraub (Ocean’s Eleven). HBO’s The Brink is described as a pitch black comedy with an epic scope.
Oscar-winner Tim Robbins plays a politician named Walter Hollander. Hollander is the current U.S. Secretary of State. Jack Black plays Alex Coppins, a Foreign Service Officer. Pablo Schreiber (Orange is the New Black) plays Zeke Callahan, a Navy fighter pilot. The two men find themselves entangled in a political crisis that may lead to World War III. The Three men must work together to avert another war. The cast also includes The Daily Show’s Aasif Mandvi, Maribeth Monroe of Workaholics, Dexter’s Geoff Pierson, Eric Ladin and Esai Morales.
Speaking of HBO shows, there is another open casting call this weekend in New York City for a different HBO project that is currently un-named but being helmed by ’12 Years A Slave’ director, Steve McQueen.
The brink will need lots of Pakistani extras or Pakistani looking extras. Central Casting is holding an open casting call this coming Friday at their offices in Los Angeles. All ages over 18 are welcome to apply. The scene will be filming early next week on the 26th. Both Union and Non-Union extras are welcome to apply.
