HBO series open casting call for Extras in San Bernardino, CA

An open casting call for paid extras is coming to San Bernardino during the first week of June.

David Fincher (Se7enGone Girl, and The Social Network) will be directing the music video oriented show which is set in the 80s…  the years when MTV actually broadcast music videos. David Fincher spent the 80s directing music videos for top music artists like Madonna, Sting and the Rolling Stones and now he will revisit his old music video days in the HBO show, “Videosyncrasy“, previously called “Living On Video“.

According to the entertainment news website, Deadline,  Living On Video (“Videosyncrasy“)  will be a  half-hour comedy about L.A.’s music video industry in the early 80’s. The show will focus on a young college drop out who moves to L.A. to get into the movie business and ends up landing a job as a PA for a music video producer.

This is one of 2 music oriented shows coming to HBO. The other is the Martin Scorsese / Mick Jagger Rock n’ Roll series set in the 70’s.

    I am hosting a women self defense seminar on the 6th at the same time period. I’m a 51 year old martial art school owner. (Shaved smooth head) not very 80s but maybe I could be a bouncer type? Are there any other days for casting or interviews. Please email me.

      You can probably contact Central to see if you can just come into their office to register. They have an L.A. office.
