HBO Feature Film “Confirmation” Seeks African American Talent


The HBO movie is beginning production in Atlanta and is looking to cast a few African American background actors for scenes filming mid month.

The Anita Hill / Clarence Thomas scandal rocked the Supreme Court confirmation hearings back in the early 90?s and now HBO is making a movie about the scandal. Kerry Washington will be playing the woman at the center of the scandal, Anita Hill. The project is hiring background actors to play Anita Hill’s family members and they are seeking talent to play Anita’s (Kerry Washington’s) sister, cousins, aunts, nephews and others. Clarence Thomas,  will be played by Wendell Pierce (“Treme”, “The Odd Couple).

The film is set to begin production in June and will film in Atlanta through the summer. Tammy Smith Casting is also accepting submissions for general background actors to play congressmen, congresswomen, reporters, media, college students, professors and police officers. The film is set in 91 and is also looking to cast folks with car models of that time (1975 to 1991). There is a different casting call for the more general roles, please see it here.

    I am available to work at anytime. Looking for extra roles with the opportunity for a speaking role. I am union and unless its something major, not willing to work non-union. I am currently in Memphis, but is not a problem to come to any location within reason.
