John Krasinski and Anna Kendrick's  'The Hollars' Open Casting Call for Speaking Roles, Extras in Jackson, Mississippi

Morgan Casting is the local casting company for the upcoming feature film, The Hollars, which will film in Jackson, Mississippi this summer starting mid July. The feature film will feature The Office's John Krasinksi, Pitch Perfect's Anna Kendrick and Richard Jenkin's from Six Feet Under. According to Deadline, “The Hollars” centers on  John Hollar (John Krasinski), an aspiring NYC artist who takes his girlfriend (Anna Kendrick) back to his Middle America hometown on the eve of his mother’s (Margo Martindale) brain surgery. There he’s forced to navigate the crazy life he left behind as his dysfunctional family, high school pals, his father (Richard Jenkins), and his over-eager ex flood back into his life ahead of the operation. The pic is produced by Krasinski’s Sunday Night production company and scripted by James C. Strouse in what’s described as a blend of Steel Magnolias and Garden State. Casting directors are holding an open casting call for extras and speaking roles in the movie this Saturday, June 28th in Jackson, Mississippi. The feature film will require a ton of extras and producers are looking for people to come and audition for roles, take a few quick photos, and join the casting director's database for the upcoming feature film. This is a free experience and a great way to boost our acting career.
