Bolden Movie Casting Call for African American Actresses

Project Casting

The upcoming Bolden movie is looking for African American models and actors in Wilmington, North Carolina.

‘Bolden’ is the passion project of Hyatt Hotels heir and writer/director Dan Pritzker, who has reportedly funneled millions into the film. ‘Bolden’ centers on a mythical account of the life of Buddy Bolden, the first Cornet King of New Orleans. According to IMDB, Bolden! features Jackie Earle HaleyOmari Hardwick, and Michael Rooker.

Casting directors are looking for very light skinned African American women or mixed women who can pull off the Creole look and are between 18 to their late 20s to work on the upcoming feature film. Filming will take place on December 4th and December 8th. But, talents must be available for a fitting scheduled for this Monday, December 1st.

The scenes are from 1906, so talents must look natural to that time period.
