  1. I think I am going to have to postpone my trip for a few days and try and make this casting call, this would be an awesome experience.

  2. I created this flyer. If you don’t live local to Boston, you should not come to the casting call. This is for extras and feature extras who live near Boston…

  3. I’m in northern CT, very close to Massachusetts. I really want to come to this, I am trying to figure out a ride.

  4. I didn’t read the post about not coming to Boston. I bought my ticket to go there from NYC. See ya.

  5. Just look into a bus from Conn. -final destination you’ll want is “South Station “,Boston. Good luck!

  6. Where I am in CT these days, it’s probably almost an hour to find a bus. It’s so rural here, but I found a ride and it’s barely over an hour away from me. Thank you.

  7. Thank you for creating the flyer Matt. I went to the audition even though do not live in Boston. Why? I am an actor, i live where i get hired.

  8. Is this still being filmed ? I need to get involved I been in sales for years and feel I have a greater purpose … How can I get involved in this film or any film in the near future? I was born in Cambridge lived in mass an nh my whole life im ready to evolve!!
