Ever dreamt of sharing the screen with Dolly Parton? If you have free time in September, you could be an extra in the country icon’s new Netflix film series.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Parton’s Dixie Pixie Productions would be teaming up with Warner Bros. Television to create a film series around eight of her legendary songs. Next month, filming of the series will begin in the Atlanta area and more faces are needed for some background roles.
According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, they are currently in search of extras for five different roles.
“Caucasian men between the ages of 18-26 who are clean shaven and willing to get a period haircut” are being considered for the role of WWII soldiers. “Caucasian men between the ages of 18-26 who are real amputees” who are clean shaven and willing to recieve a period haircut are being sought to portray war amputees. “African-American men age 35 and up” who are also clean shaven and willing to get a period haircut will play diner staff. Anyone cast for these roles must be available on Sept. 13 for filming.
Caucasian men and women over the age of 18 can also apply to act as 1940s townsfolk. Anyone cast in these roles must be available Sept. 11-13, 20-21 and 24-25.
Facial expressions – Caucasian men aged 35 and up to “portray stone-faced yet reactionary citizens” who are also clean shaven. Those cast for this role must be available Sept. 12, 20-21 and 24-25.
Anyone interested in becoming an extra can email [email protected] with “ENLISTED,” “TOWNFOLK,” “WOUNDED VET,” “DINER STAFF” or “EXPRESSIONS” included in the subject line, depending on which role you want to be considered for.
