"Nevada feature film casting call for actors in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Casting directors are now casting actors to work on scenes filmed in Las Vegas, Nevada between March 15 to May 15, 2023.

Producers are looking for the following talent: 

[MARIA> 25-40’s. Trans Woman. Any ethnicity. Maria is an old school, no-surrender-no-defeat, anti-assimilationist punk. She tries every day to wear her heart on her sleeve (along with lots of patches, of course), but in many ways Maria is also emotionally stunted from a lifetime of trauma and the exhaustion of operating outside the bounds of normative society. LEAD. Talent can be based anywhere in the US.

[JAMES H.] 18-25. Any ethnicity. A sweet, spacey, gentle kid with a complex interior world. James is the sort of ethereal, head-in-the-clouds dreamer who lives most of his days inside his own brain, and who gets mistaken for strange and unambitious as a result. There’s something unmistakably queer about James, but he’s too busy hiding in fantasy to explore his own sexuality. LEAD. Talent can be based anywhere in the US.

CASTING FEATURE FILM NEVADA

We are casting Jane Schoenbrun’s new film NEVADA, produced by Tango. The film is adapted from Imogen Binnie’s cult classic novel of the same title. Casting the two leads - Maria & James, this is a nationwide search.
