Chicago, IL Casting Calls: Short Film Seeks Elderly Actors

Casting Call Details:
Seeking two elderly looking males to play 70 year old neighbors who are competing for “Best Lawn”. Think: “Grumpy Old Men”
Physically required to do some light physical comedy and some very light yard work for the film.
Actual age is less important than being able to pull off the look.
Filming in Westmont, IL next week or possibly over next weekend.
Please submit a headshot and resume. Link to your reel if you have one.

Abner and Barry are preparing their lawns for the upcoming parade of homes when a seemingly harmless prank escalates to an all out prank war between the two elderly gentlemen.

This is a 5-6 minute short comedy that is festival bound. Filming next week (2-3 days between 5/1-5/6) in Westmont, IL. There is no dialogue, so you must be able to emote through facial expressions and gestures.

Must be physically able to participate in light physical comedy and light yard work. Not adverse to taking a pie in the face.

This shoot will be a lot of fun. If you are interested, please respond with your headshot, resume, and contact info. If you have a reel, please link that as well.
