Showtime‘s new series by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon City on a Hill is now casting actors for a gambling scene in New York City.

Grant Wilfley Casting is now casting actors to ply early 1990s gambling event patrons with cars from 1980 to 1992 for the upcoming Showtime series City On A Hill. Filming will shoot on February 8th in Manhattan, New York City. Fittings will take place between January 31st through February 1st in Brooklyn, New York. Talents must be local to New York, over 18 and have a valid, unexpired, unrestricted US-issued ID.

The new Showtime series City on a Hill is executive produced by Tom Fontana, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jennifer Todd, James Mangold, Barry Levinson, and Michael Cuesta.

According to Deadline, the series is written by Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler) and is based on an original idea by Ben Affleck. City on a Hill is set in the early 1990s Boston when “the city was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm, until it suddenly all changed.”
