    Does the casting company (Billy Dowd?) accept any applications by mail or online?

    Will the movie’s casting call be on just this weekend? Or will it run all month?

    Hello I have been acting for about 7 years. I have also been an extra. I’ve also played a lead in a short. I have worked with Tim Busey, and Sam Mendes. You can look up one of my films “Sane Like Me”. I would love to work on the film only if they can pay for the trip to go to Boston, and will give descent pay. I am a caregiver for my husband and I try to get all the money I can to help him. I look forward to hearing from you.
