"The Green Book" Starring Mahershala Ali

Movie Extras Casting Call

Two-time Academy Award nominated actor and star in the “Lord of the Rings” series Viggo Mortensen is teaming up with newcomer and 2017 Academy Award winner for his acting in “Moonlight” Mahershala Ali for a new movie. “The Green Book” tells the real story of one of New York City’s best bouncers. Filming will be taking place in New Orleans, Louisiana. General submissions are now being accepted. Because it takes place in the 1960’s, you cannot have any trendy hairstyles or cuts or crazy hair colors. All types of models and actors are needed for this 2017 movie casting call. Anyone selected to be in the film will be paid.

About “The Green Book”

The true story is set in 1962 and follows Tony Lip (Vallelonga’s real life father), one of the best bouncers in New York City who is in need of work after his nightclub, the Copacabana, shuts down. He takes a gig chauffeuring a highly educated piano-playing prodigy who wants Lip to go on tour with him in the Deep South. While the two clash at first, a bond eventually grows as they travel deeper into the racially charged region.[Variety]
