Chicago, IL Casting Calls: Casting Call for Independent Film “Mulligan”

Midway Films is conducting auditions for its next feature film, “Mulligan.” SAG / Non-Union.
Auditions will be held on Wednesday, August 4th. Callbacks Friday, August 6th.

The filmmakers’ last project, “Crime Fiction,” premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival and received distribution via Anthem Pictures.

“Mulligan” tells the story of two former best friends, JOHN (32) and KARL (32), reunited by a chance at $500,000. Uncovering evidence that there might be a suitcase of stolen cash buried in a cabin in Lake Geneva, WI, the two head off on an adventure together. Along the way they encounter a couple of femme fatales and a bizarre cop (OFFICER FRANK) with mysterious intentions. It’s a film about fathers & sons, golf, and codeine.

Shooting dates are August 8-28. Please include headshot, resume and detailed availability for these dates when submitting.

Auditions will be held on Wednesday, August 4th. Callbacks Friday, August 6th.

Character Breakdown (Note that the following are all speaking roles and require a 1-7 day commitment):

Angel – (40-50, any race) – Once a young trophy wife, Angel is now tired and eccentric. She’s been cooped up in her dead husband’s lake house for 10 years.

Charlie – (30-40, Caucasian) – Effortlessly smug and tragically stupid, Charlie is the Big Brother who never left high school. Probably into blow he can’t afford.

Officer Frank – (30-40, Caucasian) – A small town psychotic who takes his job as a cop very very seriously. Lives in a old cabin in the woods. Loves scat porn.

Girl (17, any race) – A nice suburban girl on her way to a high school kegger.

John’s Mom (50-65, Caucasian) – Put-upon, kind, weary. She makes meatloaf for dinner, loves her dog, and doesn’t (yet) have the heart to tell her 30 year old son it’s time to move out.

Mr. Daniels (25-35, Caucasian) – An ambitious, mobbed-up Chicago Union man. Working his way up the Family with cold, deadly assurance. Terrifying.

Lawyer (55-75, any race) – An old family lawyer. Been with his recently deceased client for 40 years. Played golf with the first Mayor Daley.

Mr. Sam (45 – 65, Caucasian) – A law-and-order country club golf pro. Protects the seal. Does things by the book. Wants to preserve his little empire, ostensibly for the members’ sake.

Mrs. Steward (40 – 55, Caucasian) – A Real Housewife of Cicero. New money. Possibly mobbed up. Lots of make-up, doesn’t mind a brawl.

Mrs. Steward’s Friends (3) (40 – 55, Caucasian) – The Real Housewives of Cicero.

Real Estate Agent (50+, Caucasian) – The “wisdom” of a small Michigan town. Knows the history, knows all the families. A great storyteller.

Filming will take place in Chicago; some roles will require travel to location in Lake Geneva, WI (about 2 hours away). Credit/meals/accommodation provided for in addition to SAG Ultra Low Budget rate.
