"Love & Mercy" Beach Boys Movie Casting Call

Casting directors are currently casting background actors for the upcoming Beach Boys biopic, Love & Mercy.

Love & Mercy recently started production this month and will feature Paul Giamatti, John Cusack and Paul Dano. Centering on the lives of the troubled Beach Boys lives at different points in time.
According to Yahoo, "Love & Mercy" will take a different look at Wilson's life and explore his difficult battle with mental illness, as well as the love that keeps him alive.  

While Landy, played by Paul Giamatti, primarily served as Wilson's therapist, he also wormed his way into the artist's life to an unhealthy and perhaps unethical degree.

  Bill Pohland will be produce "Love & Mercy" with John Wells and Claire Rudnick Polstein of John Wells Productions. Oren Moverman, from "The Messenger" wrote the script and will executive produce with Jim Lefkowitz. Atticus Ross from "The Social Network" will work on the sound design of the film and the soundtrack.
