“Olive Kitteridge” Casting Call being held in Gloucester, MA this weekend


HBO’s new mini-series titled Olive Kitteridge is filming in Gloucester and North Shore, MA and they are looking for local extras!

Filming will take place from September through November and the film is looking for both females and males over the age of 25 who are interested in working as extras or background actors.

They are interested in “small-town New England seacoast characters: i.e. fishermen, dockworkers, bar goers, townsfolk, coffee shop regulars and others”.

Casting call will take place on Saturday, August 10, at the Kyrouz Auditorium at Gloucester City Hall (9 Dale Ave, Gloucester, MA. 01930. Interested parties are asked to bring a recent, non-returnable snapshot or photo. The positions will be paid.

Olive Kitteridge, starring Frances McDormand and Richard Jenkins, “tells the alternately poignantly sweet, acerbically funny, and devastatingly tragic story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive, whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and a staunch moral center.” The movie is based on the Elizabeth Strout novel of the same name.

  1. I was interested in trying out for this audition. I was curious if I must be there at the beginning of the audition or can I show up at any time during the casting call?
