These screen, stage, and voice projects need talent in the UK right now, so sharpen your self-taping and audition skills and get busy. 

Indeed job-search commercial casting real people
Producer Thomas Pegg is casting a commercial and is seeking actors with current or past regular day jobs who’ve used the Indeed job search platform to get a new job. The two roles are for people to appear as themselves, aged 18+, any gender, and all ethnicities – charismatic and confident speakers with a story to share. You’ll need to have used the site to gain a new job or for personal development. The project aims to shoot before Christmas, TBC on your availability. Roles are paid £2,000, including usage and agency fees. The team are casting for people based anywhere in the UK. Head to the casting notice for more details and to apply now.

Docu-drama casting lookalikes
Casting researcher Eleanor Palmer is seeking lookalikes for documentary series Autopsy, with an episode focusing on the life and death of all-American actor John Wayne. The team are seeking male performers with physical resemblances to Wayne in his mid-to-late 60s: white, playing ages 60–70, over 6ft, with salt-and-pepper hair. You’ll need to be able to replicate Wayne’s signature walk and smoke herbal cigarettes. Wayne’s father and mother are white, male and female, playing ages 40–50, with brown hair and brown eyes. The project shoots 5–9 October in London and roles are paid between £250–£400. The team are seeking performers based anywhere in the UK. Check out the casting notice for more info and to apply now. 

Hip hop music video casting for shoot in Spain
Director Nathaniel Delanbanque is casting a leading non-white female performer aged 25–39 for a hip-hop music video. Goddess Venus is a speaking role, so you’ll need to be able to physically and vocally transform into the character, and you must have dance and movement experience. Please note: this role involves an on-screen kiss, so you’ll need to have your temperature taken and a coronavirus test ahead of filming. The project shoots in Barcelona, Spain and the role is paid £150–£250, plus flight, accommodation, and self-catering. The team are seeking performers based in London. Head to the casting notice for more information and to apply now.

Low budget feature film casting lead roles
Feature film The Mia Project is a low budget three-hander, shooting with a skeleton crew in early 2021. The project is the second feature from a filmmaker and is seeking lead actors who can work collaboratively to build character, dialogue and story. All three performers will receive equal co-writing credits alongside the director. Mia is female, playing age 24–33, and any ethnicity. She’s magnetic, care-free, works-hard-and-plays-hard, and gay. Alex is female, 24–33, caring, intelligent, obsessive, and more fragile than her partner Mia. Rehearsals and shoots are in early 2021, with shoots from March–April 2021. Roles are paid £1,500 plus travel and rehearsal fees. The team are seeking performers based in London. Check out the casting notice for more details and to apply now.
