A white male actor, aged 40–50, is wanted for the supporting role of Sergeant Andy, an international Special Forces Co-Training Exercise Drill Sergeant with a strong personality. The film will shoot between February and June in three different cities in China. Pay is $500–$2,000 per day, depending on experience, with 40 days of planned work scheduled.

Local talent is wanted for “Confidence,” a nonunion paid commercial for Honey, an online coupon and promotion company. Two actors, aged 28–36, are wanted to play the husband of the lead, as well as the role of a sushi restaurant waiter-host (service experience is a plus for this role). Both roles require good comedic timing and improv ability. The shoot will take place between Jan. 22–Feb. 1 in the greater L.A. area. Pay is $150–$250 for the day. Apply here!
