The baseball movie “42,” which is about the life of the great Jackie Robinson, starts filming soon in Atlanta and beyond. It stars Harrison Ford as the baseball executive who signed Robinson, while Chadwick Boseman will play Robinson.
There’s a big casting opportunity for extras who can bring the heat. The film needs “experienced baseball players ages 25-38″ for some upcoming scenes. This is serious business – they’re going to send you to training camp first before shooting starts so you’re in good form for the movie.
The open call will be March 27 and 28, followed by an on-field tryout for those who make the cut.
Here’s how you get involved:
See the website www.SportsStudioCasting.com and create a free profile, including recent photos. A headshot as well as one of you playing ball would be optimal. Include your sizes, athletic experience and contact information.
After you’ve done that click “Casting Calls” and submit your profile. You’ll find more details there.
