Shooting is slated for March 15–21 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and will provide some pay.

“White Boy Rick,” a feature starring Matthew McConaughey, is casting talent for several background roles including prison visitors, corrections officers, and more. The shoot is set for April 1 in Cleveland, Ohio and will provide minimum wage pay.

Male and female talent ages 17–21 is needed for four leading roles in “Assassin of Youth,” a three-minute pilot episode with “a goal to reform Cannabis Prohibition, and stop the unjust incrimination of minorities in the USA.” The project will shoot March 18 and 25 in Teaneck, New Jersey, and pay $100/day.

Get ready for all that jazz. A union production of “Chicago” is casting talent for several roles including Velma Kelly, Roxie Hart, and the smooth-talking Billy Flynn. Production is slated for March 19–26 in Folsom, California, and will adhere to an Equity LOA/COST Contract.
