Do You Resemble Will Ferrell? You May Get A Part In A Movie
Are you blessed with the good fortune of being often mistaken for actor Ryan Reynolds? Do many people comment on how much you remind them of comedian Will Ferrell? If so, you may wind up on the silver screen even if you can't act!
According to WHDH/7 News Boston, a Boston-based casting company is on the lookout for people who look like Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell. A musical re-imagining of "A Christmas Carol" called "Spirited" will be filmed in Massachusetts this summer.
CP Casting and Acting Studio is seeking look-a-likes for the two actors. A photo double must resemble an actor as closely as possible. In other words, you could pass for an actor's twin.
The casting company is also looking for those people on the taller side. The listing calls for men between 6’1″ and 6’4″ available for several days of filming in summer 2021. Not to be confused with stand-ins, photo doubles take the place of actors when they are in a scene but are not the focus of the scene.
The "Spirited" project, which will eventually appear on Apple TV+, will be filmed in the Boston area from early July to sometime in October. That's great news and lots of work for the local film industry.
According to multiple trade publication reports, Reynolds will portray the "Ebeneezer Scrooge-type" character, while Ferrell will play the Ghost of Christmas Present. Both Renolds and Ferrell are no strangers to Massachusetts having each filmed earlier projects here. As a matter of fact, it was while filming the movie "R.I.P.D." in Boston when Reynolds connected with his wife, Blake Lively.
You can submit yourself for whichever role by emailing your name, phone number, height, where you live, resume, and recent photos to CPCastingSubmission@gmail.com.
