HBO TV Show The Deuce Looking for Men

Casting Men Ages 18+ to Play Homeless in New York City

The new HBO series “The Deuce” is now filming in New York City and casting directors are looking for males to portray homeless men. The show that stars James Franco is now accepting submissions from men to work Friday night.

About “The Deuce”

The show follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early ’70s through the mid ’80s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world that existed there until the rise of HIV, the violence of the cocaine epidemic and the renewed real estate market ended the bawdy turbulence of the area. The series is partly inspired by the career of twin brothers, Vincent Martino and Frankie Martino. [Variety]
