Cinemax Banshee Casting Call for Extras in PA

06/16/2015

The Cinemax non-stop action series, “Banshee” is in production in the Pittsburgh area and looking to cast some paid extras.

The show is now casting male paid background extras in the Pittsburgh PA area. Specifically, they are looking for men who have beards that they are willing to trim into what they call a “chin curtain”. The show is also looking to fill some other roles as well, specifically, party goers and protesters. The scenes will be filming next Monday and Thursday (depending on roles) and talent applying must be able for a long day on set (12 to 14 hours). There is no specific call time yet for the shoot so talent applying must have a pretty flexible schedule and able to work 14 hours straight regardless of start time which may be early or late. Not sure what a chin curtain is? Check out the pic below.

Back in February Cinemax announced that the Emmy winning show will return for a 4th season which will be comprised of 8 episodes. Season 4 of “Banshee”  will premiere in early 2016. The show is about a criminal named Lucas Hood,  an ex-con who comes to the town of Banshee and assumes a new identity…. that of the town’s Sheriff.  Once Sheriff, he uses his his new position to help himself along in his criminal enterprises.   “Banshee”  stars Antony Starr as Lucas Hood. Carrie Hopewell Ivana Milicevic stars as his ex, Carrie Hopewell, who also has assumed a new identity in town.  “Banshee” also stars Hoon Lee, Frankie Faison, Ulrich Thomsen, Rus Blackwell, Matt Servitto, and Demetrius Grosse.
