"The Longest Ride" Movie Casting Call for Country Music and Swing Bands in North Carolina

‘The Longest Ride’ is casting real country bands for a scene in the movie from the author of “The Notebook”.

Marty Siu Casting is currently seeking a country music band and a swing band for "The Longest Ride". Based on the Nicholas Sparks novel, “The Longest Ride” centers on two sets of lovers in two intertwining stories. The first story is told through flashbacks of a 90-year-old veteran’s life and the love he has for his departed wife. The second story follows a student who falls in love with a similarly-wounded bull rider. Casting directors are looking for people that have vintage instruments from the 1940's but that is not mandatory. For more details, check out the casting call below:
