Extras for 'Nothing But the Truth'


Nothing But the Truth, a feature film written and directed by Rod Lurie (Commander in Chief, The Last Castle, The Contender) will begin shooting in Memphis October 10th. The lead actors are: Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Alan Alda, David Schwimmer,

The film production will be using actors, stand-ins and extras from the Memphis area to fill various casting needs.

Those interested in being cast should send a NON- RETURNABLE CURRENT snapshot, brief bio and all contact information (home phone, work phone cell etc.) to:

Casting "NBTT"
c/o The Memphis & Shelby Co. Film and Television Commission
50 Peabody Place, Suite 250
Memphis, TN 38103

Auditions and castings are by appointment only. The casting department will be making calls to those who are needed to be seen in person. The casting process is on-going, thus some who submit themselves may not be contacted immediately. Filming goes through mid November, as will calls to fill roles. If you are not contacted immediately, it does not mean that you will not hear from the casting department. Again, it is an on-going process through-out filming.

The film is set in Washington, DC. There is a wide variety of types needed for roles. Business types, News Reporter types (TV and Newspaper), Police, FBI and Guards, female prisoners, Elementary school children and staff, (NO CHILDREN UNDER SIX YEARS WILL BE ACCEPTED).

Several of the female prisoner types will have repeated days of work, some with the lead, Kate Beckinsale. These will be fun scenes and the casting department is seeking ages 18 – 50, all ethnicities. This is a great opportunity for aspiring extras and actors. Females would benefit from sending a snapshot with no make-up and unkempt hair for consideration in this category.

The casting department is also specifically seeking boys age 6-8 to play the role of one of the lead couple's son. This boy is your average boy next door, but heavy southern accents will not work due to setting being in the DC area.

Parents of boys fitting this age group are encouraged to send child's current snapshot with parent's info ASAP to the address above. This role is VERY important and the casting director would like to see as many submissions as possible as soon as possible.
