Actors Wanted in NOLA for Film “The Dunning Man”

05/21/2015

Cynthia Stillwell Casting has announced auditions in New Orleans for “The Dunning Man”

Casting directors for the project are looking for local actors to fill supporting and ensemble roles. “The Dunning Man” is written and directed by Michael Clayton and will begin filming shortly in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Dunning Man” is based on the book by Kevin Fortuna. The Dunning Man is comprised stories that feature anti-heroes who reject society’s rules. Characters from all walks of life—a rogue hip-hop star, a blackjack dealing mom, a middle-aged drunk plowing through his inheritance, and an empty-nester housewife trying to make peace with the past. They each exist in the here and now, living for what’s possible and what’s left—not what they’ve left behind. Redemption awaits all, but only along the rutted, gut-churning path of honest self-examination.
