Casting Caucasian Boys for New Season of HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire'

Grant Wilfley Casting is casting young boys for scenes in HBO's Prohibition-era drama series "Boardwalk Empire," which is currently in production for its third season. The show was created by Terence Winter ("The Sopranos") and stars Steve Buscemi as Enoch "Nucky" Thompson, a politician and bootlegger who controls Atlantic City in the 1920s.

The casting directors are seeking 8- to 12-year-old Caucasian boys to portray choir boys. Details of the episode in production have not been revealed, but one 8- to 10-year-old blond boy, who will be hired as a featured extra, must be comfortable "wearing fake blood," so it's safe to assume season three will not shy away from the gangster violence that characterized season two.

The scenes will shoot on or between April 10-13 in the New York City area. For more information and to apply, view the full casting notice on (Subscription required.)

Bobby Cannavale has joined the cast as a series regular for the new season of "Empire" as Gyp Rosetti, who challenges Nucky's control over the bootlegging business in Atlantic City. "Boardwalk Empire" will return to HBO this fall.

Grant Wilfley Casting casts extras for film and television. Current TV projects include "Smash," "Person of Interest," and the upcoming HBO movie "Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight."
