Full Time Stand Ins on “Billy Lynn’s Long Half-Time Walk” in Atlanta

By | March 10, 2015

Movie filming in the Atlanta area is looking to cast stand-ins that will be available to work many days between mid April and May.

The movie is about to begin production and accepting submissions for the roles. The descriptions are listed below.  Stand-ins do not appear on camera, they are used to set up the shots and will be replaced by actors for final filming. Because they must physically resemble the actors in the film, you must match the descriptions in order to be considered. Currently, the project is seeking 7 male stand-ins

 Ang Lee is directing a new film, “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk”. The story is based on a 2012 New York Times bestselling novel written by Ben Fountain and will mostly be set on one day, Thanksgiving day Dallas Cowboys football game. According to the books wiki page, the story follows a US military soldier named Billy Lynn who is part of Bravo Squad, fighting in Iraq. Lynn, a 19-year-old private survives an intense battle, “the Battle of Al-Ansakar Canal“, that happens to be captured by news cameras which catapult him and the other survivors into the limelight. Lynn and the team of soldiers are subsequently brought home by the U.S. government to go on a promotional tour to rally support for the war effort. The tour ends with an appearance at the Thanksgiving Day  halftime show which includes a performance by  Destiny’s Child. However, after the men are paraded around, they face an imminent return to the war. Almost the entire movie takes place during the day of the game, with flashes back to the underlying events and Billy’s heroism.
