Aspiring actors could have a chance to work alongside Hollywood A-listers including Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, and Diane Kruger. The new movie JT, is shooting in Winnipeg in July and a local casting company has put a casting call for actors, according to reports.
Joey Ritchie, a casting associate with Jim Heber Casting, said producers are looking for as many as 30 actors and some roles will include lines.
Auditions are scheduled for June 29 with shooting to take place between July 17 and August 21.
Manitoba actors are asked to contact the casting company directly.
According to IMDb, JT will tell the true story of the JT Leroy hoax. JT is the literary persona created by a writer who pretended for six years to be a man who identifies as transgender.
Auditions are scheduled for Thursday, June 29. A few of the roles have French dialogue scripted. The film is being locally co-produced by Buffalo Gal Pictures.
