Those who are interested in auditioning are being asked to submit two examples of themselves on-camera, as the casting call is being done completely virtually. All applicants will be reading for the role of "Dale", who is described as "a worker who provided a service in a home."

Applicants are also asked to film themselves with their "slate", an acting term that describes a physical or digital board that contains personal information. The info being asked for is:

  • Your name
  • Union status (if you are sag-aftra eligible are you a must pay)
  • Your city/state where you receive mail

You can visit Hudson Valley Casting's post on the casting call for more information, and, if you're interested in auditioning right away, you can visit Breakdown Services' landing page for the movie.

As they say in the business (apparently), break a leg!
