Stephen King’s CASTLE ROCK TV Series: Will I Participate?

The Stephen King-based Hulu TV series, Castle Rock (starring Jane Levy, Sissy Spacek, Scott Glenn), is filming several miles from where I live. I’ve applied to Pittsburgh-based Nancy Mosser Casting (The Road, and many others), who are looking for background types: Prisoners, Prison Guards, Staff, Family Visitors, and Pedestrians.

I’ve never “acted” before, but believe I possess enough “presence” to make a believable prisoner (or prison guard). Filming begins in two weeks at the old Moundsville Penitentiary, a popular site used in a handful of movies old (famously in horror/suspense classic The Night of the Hunter, starring Robert Mitchum and Shelley Winters) and recent (Out of the Furnace with Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, the much lamented Sam Shepard).

J.J. Abrams will serve as executive producer. This new series is produced by Bad Robot Productions/Warner Bros. Television, and will premiere in 2018.

Since movie extras/background players spend most of their time waiting, this will be a “working vacation”—with benefits. I’ll keep you posted.
