OMG! Open casting calls for 'New Moon' in Canada!
And get to meet and hang out with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner?
That's what I thought. Well, here's your chance, if you happen to have the right aboriginal look. And if you can get to Canada next weekend.
According to the Vancouver Sun, there will be casting calls on Feb. 7 and 8.
The casting-call ad was placed on Craigslist in Vancouver for First Nations aboriginal male and female actors ages 15 to 25 interested in speaking roles.
The ad does not mention "Moon," but casting agent Stuart Aikins told the Vancouver Sun that they're needed for "a major motion picture."
Aikins/Cossey Casting is holding three B.C. casting calls, in Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna.
Candidates will receive scripts and be asked return the same day to read for a part.
Here's where to go to audition.
Victoria: 9 a.m. to noon Feb. 7, Paul's Motor Inn, 1900 Douglas St.
Vancouver: 9 a.m. to noon Feb.8, Second Avenue Studios, 225 W. 2nd Ave. (Aikins/Cossey is handling these auditions.)
Kelowna: 9 a.m. to noon Feb. 8, Delta Grand Okanagan, 1310 Water St.
Good luck, girls and guys. Let us know how it goes!
