As I recently posted, Channing Tatum just landed a role in Ron Howard’s comedy ‘Cheaters‘, which boasts a star-studded cast that already included Vince Vaughn, Kevin James, Winona Ryder, Jennifer Connelly and Queen Latifah.
HollywoodChicago.com is reporting that the film is about to hold auditions in the area. Chicago-based extras casting director Jon Kinnas of Atmosphere Casting is holding an open casting call to meet and greet those interested in working on the new comedy.
Kinnas told the site that the production will need to hire “hundreds of Chicago locals” to work as extras on the film. The casting call will be open to everyone (male and female) – of all ethnicities – aged 16 and older.
Those coming out for the casting call are advised to wear Chicago Blackhawks gear (official NHL licensed jerseys, T-shirts, hats, sweaters, foam fingers, etc.). The casting directors prefer the Red home jerseys and will take a photo of you in your fan attire.
Please bring a recent 4×6 photo or your headshot/resume and make sure you have a PEN. Here is the information you need for the casting call:
WHEN: Saturday, May 22, 2010 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
WHERE: Chicago Academy For the Arts, 1010 W. Chicago Ave., Chicago, IL 60642
‘Cheaters‘ is based on an idea by film and television uber producer Brian Grazer and centers on a man (Vaughn) who finds out his best friend’s wife (Ryder) is cheating on him (James), only to struggle with what to do with the knowledge. The Hollywood Reporter says Chan will play Ryder’s tattooed and pierced lover.
The comedy is produced by Vince Vaughn and Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Entertainment, will film in Chicago from May 25th and through August 6th (Chan starts filming in June), and already has a January 14, 2011 release date from Universal.
