Producers Holding Casting Call for Showtime TV Series “Weeds”

The Showtime series “Weeds” is now casting starring roles for an upcoming episode for Season 8! Weeds is an American comedy series created by Jenji Kohan and produced by Tilted Productions in associations with Lionsgate Television. The main character Nancy Botwin, played by Mary-Louise Parker, is a widowed mother of two boys who starts selling Cabbanis (Marijuana) to support her family after her husband dies suddenly of a heart attack. As the show progresses over the seasons her family gets caught up in even more illegal things.

The show made its debut on Showtime, a cable network channel about 7 years ago and has been a hit since. They have been nominated for two Satellite Awards, one Golden Globe Award, Writers Guild of American Award, Young Artist Award, and an Emmy Award. The show was recently renewed for another 13 episodes and the premiere is planned for mid-Summer. The main characters in the series are played by Mary-Louise Parker, Hunter Parrish, and Alexander Gould. Kevin Nealon and Justin Kirk also make waves in the story. The Los Angeles based creator, Jenji Kohan, was also responsible for the HBO TV Series hit “Tracey Takes On…” that ran from 1996-1999.

There are a total of nine roles being cast for filming over the next few weeks. Talent ages 4 and up to 70 years old are encouraged to submit their applications and photos.

  1. I’ve always wanted to be apart of acting or involved in commercials. This would be the ideal dream come true for me. I have multiple talents and pray that it would be of use to a broad range of audience. Thank you in advance, Vickie Solomon Thomas

  2. I’ve always aspired to be an actress but like every person, there’s always a first. This right here, this is my first opportunity I’ve came across in the entertainment industry and I intend to take this and run with it if I’m called for an audition. Thank you.

  3. I Should play rudolf cause I’ve been there before feel like I relate wit that character. My pass experience and my pass allow me to play and I know someone who is going thru that right now.

  4. When I tell people how old I am, they look at me in awe. I’ll be 21 in April, but I usually look like I’m 16. Being tiny tends to do that to people. However, I have a sharp hourglass figure, and I’m corset trained.
    Sometimes my friends call me Mary, which also seemed appropriate for my Korean teacher and classmates to call me. “Maryann” is a bit awkward in the Korean language. I know bits a pieces of a few languages and I want to someday be fluent in at least three.
    I go to Montgomery College and am transferring to the University of Maryland for a degree in Criminal Justice. My focus will be Forensic Science. If you’ve seen NCIS, you know Pauley Perrette’s character of Abby. I want to be Abby incarnate.
    Judging from the sheer diversity in the friends that I have (9+ groups), I’d say I’m a very accepting, friendly person. I can also be very abstract, and people sometimes describe me as eccentric, humble, and sometimes paradoxical. You could also ask me anything and I’ll respond truthfully. Why would I have anything to hide?
    I’m also a giant nerd. I love video games, video game music, conventions, science fiction, anime, Dungeons and Dragons (I’m not even kidding), and tabletop and strategy board games. I’m also a member of the Gamer Symphony Orchestra at the University of Maryland where I have played guitar for four years.
    My inspiration for acting came at a young age from Shirley Temple, Elisabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, and Judy Garland. I’ve been previously enrolled in John Robert Powers, Model Productions Management, and ExploreTalent for acting and modeling. At my current InterFACE, I’m enrolled for modeling. I can do anything but dance.
    This past Halloween season, I was payed to work at the Field of Screams in Olney, Maryland, a Halloween attraction. Around the same time in 2012, I was in a fairy-tale themed murder mystery, where I played Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I also have experience on stage as an extra, a named musical extra, and two main roles.
    I’ve played guitar for coming up on 7 years, I’ve been singing since I could talk, (my first song was “Sweet Dreams” by the Eurythmics) and I have a number of unfinished written works, including songs, plays, novels, and musicals.
