A huge casting call now underway is perfect for sidekicks, hero wannabes, and 1980s throwbacks.
The regular flow of casting calls has become a flood thanks to the arrival of pilot season.
Here's a little Hollywood 101: television producers create projects called "pilots" which are sample episodes of proposed shows they would like to become new television series. If a network likes a pilot presentation or episode, then a new television series is ordered from that pilot. Right now, producers are creating pilots to present to network executives, with hopes that they can become new network series. A number of those pilots are being crafted here in metro Atlanta.
Included in today's jobs are Avengers: Infinity War, Game Night, Candy Jar, Insatiable, Black Lightning, Family Feud, a popular Netflix show set in the 1980s that we are not permitted to name, and an as-yet unnamed television pilot starring Reba McEntire.
A quick word of thanks to Project Casting on today's casting calls.
Casting directors for Avengers: Infinity War is looking for men and women ages 18-to-50 for background work for scenes to be filmed on May 19. Producers are looking for good character faces and "New York looks." You will be hand-selected by the movie's director.
Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of all of the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, dating back to Iron Man in 2008. The Avengers, torn apart after the events of last year's Captain America: Civil War, join forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to battle Thanos to prevent him from acquiring the Infinity Stones for a gauntlet which would give him dominion over all of space, time and reality.
You can write the Marvel Universe telephone book with this cast -- Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Brolin, Benedict Cumberbatch, and pretty much half the known Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be in this movie.
