Casting call for new HBO show in Portland next week


On Tuesday, April 25, HBO will shoot the pilot for a new series starring Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter in Portland, Oregon. 

According to IMDb, the show is entitled Here, Now and it focuses on a couple that adopts 3 children (from Somalia, Vietnam and Colombia) and has a biological child. They start having problems when one of the children begins to see things that the others can’t.

Oregon Live reported that Portland’s Cast Iron Studios put out a casting call and that hundreds of extras are needed between April 24 and 26.

The call is for “general background performers, experienced stand-ins, photo doubles, Portland hipster types, and extras who own vehicles, bicycles and pets.”

The casting call is for non-union background performers, not principal roles and the “pay starts at minimum wage (8-hour guarantee, plus overtime) for general background, between $100-$150/day for other positions. Background performers can also earn bumps for the use of their cars, bicycles, pets, etc.”

There are two ways to apply: 1) submit the Extras Form by the evening of April 19 or 2) attend directly the open casting call this Saturday, April 22nd between 11am and 4pm at Cast Iron Studios (1430 SE 3rd Ave, Suite 100, Portland, OR 97214).
