Extras Needed for Ang Lee film about Gay Woodstock Figure


If you’re anywhere in the Albany, NY area this weekend and you’re interested in being in Ang Lee’s film about gay Woodstock figure Elliot Tiber (more on the film here and here), there’s an open casting call:

“An ad in today’s paper says the production partners, Focus Films and Tuxedo Terrace, are seeking ‘all types (college kids, hippies, townspeople, police, etc)” for various filming dates beginning in mid-August and running through mid-October in Columbia County. The casting calls take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday in Hudson at the Smith Middle School, 215 Harry Howard Ave.; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday in Albany at the College of Saint Rose Event & Athletic Center, 420 Western Ave.; and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday in New Lebanon at the Church of the Immaculate Conception at 732 Route 20. Applicants should bring a non-returnable photo and must be a legal U.S. resident. The production is also looking for vintage vehicles from the era; if you have one, bring a non-returnable photo and a description of its make, model and condition.”

    Albany? ALBANY? Hello?

    Hudson The 12534 is the “gay” town “upstate,” and the casting is there Saturday – feel free to contact me if you actually come to town from NYC. The school where the casting is located in walking distance from the Hudson train station, less than a mile I think.

    There’s a link to the actual ad for the casting on my blog at http://www.the12534.com/2008/06/he-was-friend-of-mine.html

    James Schamus, who I believe is producing the film and did Brokeback Mountain, has a house in Columbia County. The sets for the film are rumored to be located around New Lebanon in Columbia County. It’s a wonderful region and a beautiful day trip.

    The first “Columbia Pride” is the same day…
