If you’ve ever been bitten by the acting bug, this weekend could be your BIG BREAK! Hell, if you’re a human over the age of 18, this weekend could be your BIG BREAK! The casting directors for the new major motion picture â€œContagionâ€ (which before I read the synopsis, I was seriously mispronouncing in my head) don’t seem to be too picky in their call for background actors, so literally anyone is elligable.
Filming in San Francisco goes from February 9th to the 19th, and casting will take place this Saturday and Sunday, January 29th and 30th at two different locations. All you need is a small picture of yourself and a pen, and the top of your head/various other glimpses of your persons could be made famous in a movie about an â€œinternational team of doctors hired by the CDC to prevent the global outbreak of a deadly virus.â€ Neat!
The likes of Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, and Gwyenth herself will be starring in the Steven Soderbergh directed film, and if that’s not enough excitement for you, this is a PAID gig. So print out your finest Facebook profile pic, grab a pen, and reach for the stars!
