Production is about to begin on the seventh and final season of the NBC comedy series "30 Rock," starring Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, and Tracy Morgan. Do you want to go to there? Here's your chance: Barbara McNamara Casting has begun casting background for the show's last 13 episodes.
Casting director Barbara McNamara and casting associate Arthur Dutkanic are seeking a variety of background types for the "30 Rock" Season Seven premiere episode, which shoots on or between Thursday, Aug. 23, to Wednesday, Aug. 29, in New York. They are specifically casting an experienced female makeup artist with a professional background who "must be the real deal"; an authentic, experienced female clown with her own costume; and a photo double for actor Paz de la Huerta ("Boardwalk Empire"), who should be approximately 5'8" with brown hair and dress size 4. Both union and nonunion talent will be accepted for the above roles.
McNamara is also casting a female SAG-AFTRA member between the ages of 25-65 with full Hasidic garb and an older female SAG-AFTRA member above the age of 50 who is comfortable wearing an oxygen mask for the premiere episode.
For the second episode of the season, which appears to be taking aim at the upcoming presidential election, the casting directors are seeking a tall union or nonunion male to be a photo double for Republican nominee Mitt Romney, and a union actor age 20-45 to portray a male political aide. They are also casting 18- to 30-year-old male and female SAG-AFTRA members of all ethnicities to portray club-goers in the episode, which shoots on or between Thursday, Aug. 30, to Thursday, Sept. 6, in New York.
