Open Auditions for Steven Spielberg West Side Story Movie Lead Role

New York auditions for major role in his upcoming Westside Story movie.

Audition for a lead role in major movie.

Looks like Spielberg is working on a remake of the classic “West Side Story.” If you can sing and dance, there is a chance that you can audition online for a role in the upcoming flick.

NY news site Eastchester.com, is reporting that an open casting audition is taking place for the principal role of Maria in the upcoming take on Westside Story. Seems that Speilberg’s casting directors are looking to cast the role of Maria. Maria is a principal role and casting directors with Cindy Tolan are on the hunt for an actress to fill that role.

Online and video auditions are now being accepted for Maria and the casting teem is looking for an actress to play a Hispanic young woman, between the ages of 15 and 25. Westside story is a musical and actresses applying for the prime role should be able to sing and dance.

Westside Story was a hit musical that was set in the 50’s. It revolved around New York City and it’s rival gangs during the 50’s. Rumor has it that Westside Story was actually inspired by William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The story focuses on a love affair between a young man and a young woman that are basically, from opposite sides of the track.

The popular magazine Vanity Fair wrote a a story about the upcoming production and there is also an IMDB page up for the upcoming movie.  The IMDB listing currently has the productions status as “casting” and it does not look like a release date has been set.

Seems that according to Vanity Fair, Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story Will Go Back to Basics
Screenwriter Tony Kushner explains that the new movie will take its cues from the original Broadway show, not the Oscar-winning 1961 film—and that “no one will leave the movie without hearing all the classic songs.”

The article mentions that the male lead has already been cast. Steven Spielberg has cast actor Ansel Elgort for the lead male role. The female role seems to still be up in the air and ladies interested in the role are able to submit their online audition videos. Steven Spielberg, in the Vanity Fair piece, explained how Elgort got the lead male role as Tony, one of the NY gang members that falls for the female lead, Maria.

Spielberg is quoted stating the following about this choice of male leads…

“He’s a really amazing young actor. We really wanted to cast young, because it’s really a story about teenagers,” said Kushner. “He’s a wonderful singer, it turns out, and a really terrific dancer. Steven went with him, and we’re very excited. I think the rest of the cast is going to be very exciting too.”

If you fit the description, are able to sing, dance and act…. then see below for the details.

Well, sometimes dreams do come true and now might be that time, with Stephen Spielberg announcing a casting call far and wide in a search for a new Maria to star in his upcoming remake of the movie.

Casting director Cindy Tolan’s Office said Spielberg is looking for a Latino/Hispanic female between the ages of 15 to 25 years old who can sing and has a strong dance background for the 20th Century Fox production.

No officials tryout dates have been announced locally, but interested Maria’s should submit a photo and video of themselves singing to westsidestorycastingsearch@gmail.com .

BET Casting for TV Show American Soul, Based on Soul Train & Don Cornelius

A BET show called “American Soul” is now in production in Georgia and there are casting calls out for paid background actors.

BET is now filming a new TV show based on the American long running, music TV show, Soul Train and it’s creator, Don Cornelius.

According to Google’e description of the series, American Soul focuses on the rise and fall of Don Cornelius. For those too young to remember, Don Cornelius was the person behind the dance show, “Soul Train.” Soul Train was a long running music / dance show which first aired in the 70’s and was a huge part of the Disco scene in the 70’s and 80’s.

Wiki also has an entry for the TV show American Soul and their post describes the show as… The story of Don Cornelius, “his Soul Train dancers, crew and musicians in a cutthroat Hollywood in the 1970s and how they work, play, rise and fall against the backdrop of the show most responsible for the way African-American culture was perceived by the world.

Soul Train was a staple in the 70’s and aired for decades in one form or another.  The last iteration of the show actually aired in the 2000’s.  Soul Train offered a chance for African American music artists to showcase their work to a national audience and many have called Soul Train the first national TV series that was aimed directly to an African American audience.

Cornelius was a journalist and had ties to the civil rights movement. He expressed that the civil rights movement in the US was a major inspiration and recognized that there needed to be an outlet for up and coming African American musicians and a venue for their music in the United States. Don Cornelius launched Soul Train in 1970 and his show became influential among African American music and culture. He is credited with providing exposure to many soul legends such as, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Michael Jackson. Cornelius once said, “We had a show that kids gravitated to,” and Spike Lee described the program as an “urban music time capsule”.

The new BET show is set during that time and is now casting extras.

Georgia’s Hylton Casting is now looking for background actors that are local to Georgia for various scenes filming shortly:

We are currently casting extras for the TV series American Soul to work in Country Bar scenes filming on Wednesday, 12/12/18 in Conley, GA.

Casting Call for Dynasty TV Show in Atlanta

Get cast in “Dynasty”

Dynasty is back on TV. That’s right the popular 80’s prime-time soap opera is in production one more time and the new season is now filming in the Atlanta area.

Last year, in September, the CW network announced that the show will be getting a reboot and bringing back the characters of the original series, of course, with a new cast to tell the saga of the powerful Carrington family. This is the second 80’s prime-time soap opera to get a remake as a few years back Dallas did the same. Unlike Dallas which continued the original story with a new generation of rich guys, Dynasty will be resurrecting the old characters with new actors.

Sometime back it was announced that a reboot of the 1980s prime time soap opera Dynasty was being developed as a new TV series by the CW Network. According to the Dynasty wiki page, The new show is being co-written by Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, and Sallie Patrick. Also, the network announced that the original creators of the 80’s hit soap, Richard and Esther Shapiro, were on-board to produce.

The new series pits one heiress against her soon to be step-mother, with Fallon Carrington (the daughter) facing off against dad’s new wife, Cristal. The original Dynasty premiered on January 12, 1981 with powerful oil tycoon Blake Carrington played by John Forsythe  about to marry his younger secretary, Krystle Jennings (Linda Evans). Beautiful, and new to Blake’s rich and powerful world, Krystle finds a hostile reception in the Carrington household, especially when it comes to Blake’s daughter, Fallon, played by Pamela Sue Martin. The Dynasty TV show also made British actress Joan Collins a household name when her character Alexis, was introduced in season 2.

Dynasty cast

Seems that will be a story line in the new show as well, with the exception that Krystle Jennings is now Cristal Flores, a Latina… Let the back stabbing begin!

The original Dynasty was filled with family squabbles, power grabs, and all the usual drama one would expect from a soap opera. The Dynasty TV pilot was shot quite a few months back in the Atlanta area and season 1 of the show is also filming in the ATL.

Dynasty will star Grant Show as Blake Carrington, Nathalie Kelley as Cristal Flores, Elizabeth Gillies as Blake’s daughter Fallon, and James Mackay as his son Steven. The pilot, which was announced in September 2016, was ordered to series in May 2017. Dynasty will premiered on October 11, 2017 and is currently filming the 2018 season of the show.

Casting Extras in Chicago for FOX Show “Proven Innocent”

FOX TV show “Proven Innocent” now casting extras in Chicago.

The show will debut in 2019 and offers a look into the story of Madeline Scott, who at the age of 18 was convicted of murder. After many years in prison, Madeline, was found to be wrongfully convicted and released. The case caught the media’s eye and after her final release she became a partner with a criminal defense firm.

Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Danny Strong (EMPIRE) partners with David Elliot (“Four Brothers”) to tell the emotional story of one woman’s fight for the innocence of others, as well as her own.

PROVEN INNOCENT follows an underdog criminal defense firm led by MADELINE SCOTT (Rachelle Lefevre, “Under the Dome,” “A Gifted Man”), a fierce and uncompromising lawyer with a hunger for justice. There is no one who understands the power of setting an innocent person free more than Madeline. At age 18, she was wrongfully convicted, along with her brother, LEVI (Riley Smith, “Frequency”), in a sensational murder case that made her an infamous media obsession, a household name and a national cause célèbre.

According to the FOX site: PROVEN INNOCENT is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, in association with Danny Strong Productions. The pilot is written by David Elliot. Strong, Elliot and Stacy Greenberg are executive producers. Adam Armus is an executive producer and showrunner.

Casting Call for The New DC Comic’s Swamp Thing TV Show in Wilmington

Swamp Thing” is coming back to TV. The DC Universe comic is now filming the TV show in NC and there are casting calls out.

The show’s extras casting directors are looking to cast paid TV show extras in the Wilmington area to fill various small, non-speaking roles in scenes filming shortly.

According to a story in Variety, the show will follow the character, Abby Arcane (played by Crystal Reed), as she gets involved in a mystery going on within a small town in Louisiana. That investigation takes her into… you guessed it, the swamps of Louisiana, where she finds what is thought to be a viral outbreak. She soon realizes that there is something odd going on within the swamp which may not be anything anyone has ever seen before.
The Swamp Things TV show will also star Jennifer Beals, Will Patton, Virginia Madsen, and Maria Sten.

Swamp Thing” is based on the DC comic book which was actually made into a TV show many tears back.

The Swamp Thing TV show originally aired in the early 90’s and according to the IMDB description….. It was the adventures of a man-turned-muck monster. Swamp Thing was once a man named Alec Holland, but after being caught on fire, doused with strange chemicals, and dumped into the Louisiana swamps by the evil Dr. Anton Arcane, Alec’s body mutated. No longer is he human, or even an animal. His body is made from the muck and plants of the swamp. He’s super strong and can make plants do his bidding.

The original DC comic characters were created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson.   Also according to the Variety article, the new reboot of “Swamp Thing” comes from Atomic Monster as well as Warner Bros. Television.

The show is set to premiere on streaming services sometime in 2019.
