Calling all thugs with a Boston accent. C.P. Casting is holding an open casting call for Ben Affleck's "The Town" from 3:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. Friday, May 29 at the Charlestown Community Center located at 255 Medford Street.
Casting scouts are looking for men and women over 18 and they're seeking all types--bad guys, neighborhood folks, cops, detectives, wives, girlfriends and mothers. But scouts are specifically looking for locals with Boston accents.
Affleck, currently in town filming the John Wells downsizing drama "The Company Men," is already in pre-production for the Charlestown-based flick "The Town," an adaptation of the blue-collar heist novel "Prince of Thieves" by Chuck Hogan which was written for the big screen by Peter Craig.
The homegrown talent will write, star and direct in the film following a bizarre love triangle involving a crook, a female bankteller and a FBI agent.
Graham King, producer of recently shot "Edge of Darkness" starring Mel Gibson, plans to make a return trip to the Hub with Affleck's "The Town."
