FYI from the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Film Commission.
Casting directors for Don Cheadle's Miles Davis film - "Miles Ahead" - are looking for background extras (adults 21 and older), as well as cars from the late 1940s through the mid-1970s.
Applicants must be "available June through August 15."
Those interested should send a headshot, their full name, email address and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With regards to needed cars, here's what Cheadle is looking for specifically:
-- A 1970s Jaguar XJS, preferably dark green.
-- Taxis from the 1940s/'50s, and 1970s.
-- A 1950s Cadillac convertible.
-- Cars from 1965 through 1975.
Owners of cars fitting the descriptions should send a photo and contact information to email@example.com.
Cheadle is both directing and starring in "Miles Ahead," with Ewan McGregor and Zoe Saldana co-starring.
We'll be interviewing Cheadle this afternoon, so look out for a published piece in the next week or so.
