A group of gray-haired senior citizens are needed in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, February 26, to appear in a scene in the feature film DOTTY AND SOUL. They will play restaurant customers, so all filming will be inside and seated. The older the people, the better.
DOTTY AND SOUL is a comedy about flamboyant entrepreneur Ethan Cox, who is caught in a racially inappropriate video that immediately goes viral. His hopes of being the man in charge of delivering a self-driving car to the public seem destined to blow up in his face. So he hires his aging mother’s 71 year old caretaker, African-American DOTTY, to be the temporary replacement CEO of his company, until the public furor dies down.
The film is written and directed by Adam Saunders, and is produced by Saunders and Avril Z. Speaks. It stars Saunders as Ethan and legendary actress Leslie Uggams (DEADPOOL, EMPIRE, ROOTS) as Dotty. The film also stars David Koechner (THE OFFICE, ANCHORMAN).
Pay for extras is a guarantee of $64 for up to 8 hours of filming.
