Casting Call for Water For Elephants   8 comments

From MTV

Want to be seen in an upcoming Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon flick? Producers of “Water for Elephants” (which will also star recent-Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz) posted an ad this morning on Craigslist in Los Angeles seeking extras of various types for the film, which currently in pre-production. If you’re in L.A. and available for the casting on April 17th, this could be your chance at cinematic glory!

“Water for Elephants” pairs Robert and Reese together once again (remember when Robert played Reese’s son in 2004’s “Vanity Fair”?) in a tale based on the historical novel of the same name by Sara Gruen. The story, as told in the novel, follows a series of intense memories by Jacob Jankowski, a man in his 90s. Jacob remembers the year he was 23, preparing for his final exams at Cornell University, when he received news that his parents were killed in a car accident.

As “WFE” continues, Jacob leaves school to join the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth and put his skills to use during the Great Depression. When Jacob — who presumably aspires to be like his veterinarian father — sees how badly head trainer August (Christoph) treats the animals, he struggles to reconcile August’s brutality with his at times charming personality. The plot thickens as Jacob, a virgin, falls in love with August’s wife Marlena (Reese). Sounds juicy, eh?

The Craigslist ad (which is “verified,” according to the “WFE” Twitter account) notes that the production is currently seeking the following:

– Caucasian men with very 1930s looking period faces

– African American men with short 1930s period haircuts, all size 46 coat or smaller

– Caucasian women with shoulder length hair or shorter, size 6 or smaller

– Also you should note: “No piercings, tattoos, no breast implants, no artificial nails, no highlighted or colored hair.”

Screenwriter Richard LaGravenese is adapting Gruen’s novel and Francis Lawrence of “I am Legend” and “Constantine” fame will direct. All signs point to this becoming R-Pattz’s next big hit, so get your pictures together NOW!

If you haven’t read the book yet I highly recommend it. You can purchase it on Amazon here. -FP
