Exciting Projects Filming in Louisiana

APRIL 5, 2018

It’s an exciting time for Background Actors in NOLA! Central Casting’s Adam Hochfeld has all the news on projects we are casting that are filming in Louisiana.


Greyhound is a World War II drama starring Tom Hanks shooting in Baton Rouge. Central Casting is looking for men (18+) who appear to be in their 20s-30s to portray military officers and men and women of all types to portray civilians. This film is set in the 1940s, so modern looks like unnatural hair color, contemporary piercings, and full beards do not fit the time period.


Tom Hardy stars as Al Capone in the 1940s drama Fonzo. Filming in Louisiana began April 2 and will shoot in and around New Orleans. Currently casting Italian looking men and women with 1940s looks to play family members, including Italian and Italian American looking children (6+).
