Michael Cera’s ‘Columbus’ Movie Open Casting Call

Project Casting

Columbus movie starring John Cho and Michael Cera casting call for featured extras in Columbus, Indiana.

Want to work with Michael Cera? If so, then I have great news for you. On Location Casting is currently casting for the upcoming feature film Columbus, which is now filming in Columbus, Indiana.

Casting directors are looking for extras to work on the scene and play featured roles in the new movie. Filming will take place on Thursday, August 18th in Columbus, Indiana.

About Columbus:

According to The Republic, Columbus centers around the character of Jin who is played by John Cho, 29, who recently left the University of Cambridge without a doctorate in literature and now is translating books for a publisher in Seoul. He suddenly finds himself stuck in Columbus, where his architect father lies hospitalized in a coma after a visit here to study noted structures. Jin waits and secretly hopes for his father to die. In contrast, Casey, 19 (played by Haley Lu Richardson of ABC Family’s “Ravenswood”), a blue-collar, worldly and bright young woman, wants to stay in Columbus with her mother, a recovering addict, instead of pursuing her own dreams. The two eventually spend summer’s final weeks together.

To audition for a role on Columbus, check out the casting call details below.
