This week, flyers were posted to homes and businesses on North Mississippi avenue, alerting residents that the show, with a working title of "Here, Now" will be filming on the morning of Tuesday, April 25. They'll be whipping out a drone as part of the process.
And the show's premise is not simple. Robbins will play a philosophy professor and Hunter an attorney, who adopt children from Vietnam, Somalia and Colombia before having a biological child in middle age. Their seemingly perfect, modern life is disrupted when one of the children begins having visual hallucinations, which cannot be explained by medicine.
Even better, Portland’s Cast Iron Studios has put an open casting call out for the show, The Oregonian reports. The release from Cast Iron states that hundreds of paid extras are needed over the course of the three day shoot, and that they’re looking for “general background performers, experienced stand-ins, photo doubles, Portland hipster types, and extras who own vehicles, bicycles and pets for Alan Ball’s new HBO drama series.”
Want to be a part of the show? Fill out Cast Iron’s extras submission form by the evening of April 19. Cast Iron is also hosting an open casting call at their inner eastside office at 1430 S.E. Third Avenue, Suite 100, on Saturday, April 22, from 11 am-4 pm. Cast Iron stresses that they are looking for non-union background performers only, and that no speaking roles are available at the time.
