the hobbit movie casting call in Wellington
Exciting news for Hobbit fans who can work in New Zealand!
Tom Hunt from The Dominion Post writes,
The bulky, the skinny, the short, the tall, and those with ”character faces” – your time has come.
A casting call has gone out for The Hobbit and virtually anyone in Wellington qualifies, as long they’ve got unique qualities.
Men under 163cm and women under 155cm, big men with ”character faces” and any women with the same, men with large biceps, and slim and athletic men and women between 165cm and 203cm are being asked to audition.
The casting call is at The Belmont Hall, next to The Belmont Primary School, 709 Western Hutt Rd, from 1-4pm on January 28.
To be eligible, you must be over 16, entitled to work in New Zealand and living in Wellington.
This intriguing opportunity makes fans like myself who are a ways away from middle-earth jealous of those who are able to audition. Break a leg to those auditioning and stay tuned for more updates!
