Casting Directors for the upcoming Taraji P. Henson film The Best of Enemies, are looking for talent to work on scenes filming in Macon on Saturday, May 20, plus other talent that can work in scenes shooting on Friday, June 2.

The Best of Enemies is based on Osha Gray Davidson's book by the same name which chronicles the true story of Ann Atwater and C.P. Ellis.

Atwater was a civil rights activist from Durham, North Carolina, who had a decade-long battle with Ellis, the "Exalted Cyclops" of Durham's Ku Klux Klan.

Deadline says their tumultuous battle came to an "abrupt and unlikely end in 1971," when, after a court-ordered desegregation of the city's schools, the two agreed to co-chair two-week community meetings to try to reach a compromise. The events that followed changed the city of Durham, and changed the lives of both Atwater and Ellis completely.

In this casting call, casting directors are looking for beauty queens, baseball players and other featured roles.

Producers are hiring a Caucasian female between 18 and 21 years old to play a 'very featured' beauty queen in a scene to be filmed on Saturday, May 20, in Macon. The selected talent would need to attend a fitting in Atlanta between May 10 and 17.
