Ladies and gentlemen, can I please have your attention? I've just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. And I need all of you to stop what you're doing and listen. Cannonball!"
No but seriously, I have a really, really important announcement. “Anchorman 2” is holding an open casting call for San Diego locals. You have a chance to star in the epic sequel with Will Ferrell. Well, you at least have a shot at standing next to Ferrell on set. Or, maybe you are the perfect fit for Brick’s lovable lamp?
Central Casting is looking for hundreds of San Diego residents of all ages and ethnicities for various ‘extra’ roles in “Anchorman 2.” Male and female, SAG-AFTRA and non-union are all welcome. There are very few, if any, requirements to try out. All hired background actors will be paid, and the filming begins in May right here in San Diego.
The casting call is next Saturday, May 11 from 12 to 4 p.m. at the Double Tree hotel in Mission Valley. Before you go, visit centralcasting.com and click on ‘San Diego open call’ to get the I-9 information sheet. Bring the completed I-9 and proper identification with you.
