  14. I am a SAG/AFTRA Actor and Army Veteran. I have a great deal of acting experience and extremely familiar with Army principals,tactics,memories and experiences that I can draw from in creating and playing a principal character in this show

  15. Well, I suppose all I can say is that I have the drive to be one of the best character actresses of my generation. Acting is in my soul and being in a show like this would be extraordinary. I’ve been in and starred in most of my high school plays. I’m an active model and actress here in Fort Myers Florida. I’m very willing to go the extra mile for whatever I can do. I feel like this is my time to stick my foot in the door and make a wish into a dream and that dream into my life. Thank-you for reading this, if anything that means the world. Much love.

I am a great listener and follow direction as I’m told. “I was born to be an entertainer” is what my high school teacher told me, and I never doubted him once. Please consider me as an extra in your soon to be amazing film :)

  18. I’m 17 year old Hollywood hopeful with major understanding in drama both on stage and on TV set. I’m very outgoing, funny, and inspirational. In my spare time I work as an advocate and supporter of over 25+ charities and organizations. I’m president of my senior class student council and our drama club, I student direct and recently attempted directing a performance of Cat On the Hot Tin Roof when I realized I belonged on stage. I’m an active member in the Future Business leaders of America, and participate in track and field. In my spare time I do psychic reading for people going through grief in their life, relax with my recently growing family, and work on my book of poetry Ive been writing throughout my high school life called “Philosophy of the Lighting Bugs”. I’m a natural at acting and believe this is what I was meant to do. I’m a symbol of longevity and originality. I’m a fresh young face that brings diversity and warmth to any set I step on to whether it be on stage or on camera.

  19. I was a police officer in the Charlotte NC area for 10 years so I would be perfect for the role of police or secret service. I also ran for public office so I would fit well in the role of politician. I am 39 years old with a muscular build. I am currently enrolled in acting classes in Charlotte NC.

  20. I am Italian, Syrian, and Korean. I have a diverse look that can pass for any nationality as well as any age… 18+. I own a glock px4 storm and have shot assume rifels. One shot one kill ;@) I have a dynamic personality and incredible range due to modeling and acting experience. However, just as important, I have life experience to draw on. I’ve live more then many will in a life time. Thanks!

  21. Hi, please consider me for the part of a computer tech, the youngest, smartest one the agency has. I am a nerdy type almost 12 year old who is really into computers and can programme anything. It would be a unique spin on an old character. I have some previous experience as an Extra on Murdoch Mysteries playing a homeless kid on the streets of old Toronto. The episode is episode 8, Dial M for Murdoch. You can see me just after the 8 minute mark, wearing a green cap and glasses. I have great memorizing skills and can follow directions.

  22. I have up to four years of theater experience i am hard working and learn my lines easily, i am easy to work with even as an extra i give it my 100% acting is all i ever wanted to do i am 16 and can look older as well as younger i have blue/Grey/green eyes and am 5″6″ i have dark brown hair. i can also sing and play up to five instruments acting is my life, and this would be the perfect way to start my acting career

  23. I’ve had expierience in school plays and a proffessional acting camp. My acting style has been compared to Clint Eastwood by a casting agent.

  24. I am a local actress and would love this opportunity. I just played the role of a flirty, mid 20’s gal named Jillian Jeffers from Cleveland in the Independent film ‘Above The Fire’ I am very southern, but pulled off a Cleveland accent. I look very young for my age. I am 35 but can very easily pass for a teen to my 20’s. In fact, I was an extra in ‘Hunger Games’ as a youth. I am new to the area of film and have gotten the bug. I am very excited to learn more.

  25. I would love to be part of this show. I have acting experience and have also taken classes in theater and stand-up comedy and would love to audition for this show!

  26. Hi Im Lilly! I knnow you want a boy around 12 but I am a female and Im 13! I wouldnt mind just being an extra but most likely this boy in the movie will need a friend! I could play the boys friend in the movie! I could have lines or just be in the backround! Also, i believe you should use me because I am very outgoing and can play ANY part Im givin! But the only sad face inn this situation is that i live in North Carolina and cant try out elsewhere so i would have to do a video tryout if that would be alright! Just put in your mind as you decide on people that i live not far from the shooting site and this my chance of a lifetime!!! Thanks!!! ;)

  27. I live 3 hours away from Charlotte and I have been there a few times. Just to be an extra would be amazing. Anything that is asked of me I will do.

  28. I am highly interested and available. My other home is in Bristol Tenneessee. I have the experience and drive for this role.

  29. I am listed under LA Casting/Casting Network. I have acting experience especially in the military and law enforcement. Retired from both. Combat veteran of Iraq and Beiruit. Combat leader and great at improv. Would like to be considered for General ir ranking soldiers, marines or any role you think I can fill. Respectfully Harold Tucker

  30. I believe I am perfect for the pot-smoking teen look or an extra. I have really gotten into modeling for the past couple years and I want to become an actress so bad! I KNOW that I will do big things with my talents, I just need to find a starting point with acting. I am 5’5″ 115 pounds. Im little but Im a firecracker. :)

  32. i am a mature 26yr old male. Could easily blend into any of the roles you seek. I am extremely well spoken and quick witted thanks in part to my career in marketing and PR. Dressing formally everyday and appearing clean cut are a must! I can appear edgier as well as i have toured with a couple metal bands over the past few years. Playing a rocker, soldier, federal agent, or government official are all in my wheel house. I love Showtime and its programming and would love the opportunity to join one of its acclaimed series!

  33. I think I would be great for this show. I have a very strong, leader personality and I’m an aspiring actress and am really looking for a “big break”. I have a lot of determination and am very passionate. I am 5’5″ and I have brown hair and light brown eyes. I’m 14 years old. I’d love to be considered

I’m outgoing and communication-able person, who can easily take any friendly orders from film-director, script-writer or other people engaged in this business. I’m able to work with groups as with pairs. Thank you in advance! AGE:13 (REGARDLESS MY AGE,I’M QUITE TALL, SO I CAN BE USEFUL FOR 14 AND 15 YEARS OLD HEROES)
