Two casting calls have appeared online for the filming of director Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass in Hamilton, Ontario. Based on the Marvel Comics’ Icon imprint book, written by Mark Millar and drawn by John Romita Jr., the action-adventure stars Nicolas Cage, Aaron Johnson, Lyndsy Fonseca, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz.
The story centers on a high school dweeb named Dave Lizewski who decides to become a superhero even though he has no athletic ability or coordination. Things change when he eventually runs into real bad guys with real weapons.
This first one was posted here:
Looking for teen goths / emos with facial piercings (eyebrows, lips, nose, etc.) to be extras in a film entitled “Kickass” starring Nicolas Cage, shooting in Hamilton on Saturday September 20th.
There will be a shuttle from Toronto available for those without cars on the day of shooting.
MUST be 15-19 yrs of age, or be able to pass for a high school student.
Please send a clear photo ASAP along with your age, and indicate Goth/Emo in the subject heading of your email.
And the second one here:
The film ‘Kickass’ starring Nicolas Cage will be filming in Toronto on Sept. 20 and 21 (Saturday and Sunday). It is a high school scene and we are looking for athletic, all american types, clean cut, fit 16 – 19 yrs old to be extras on both days.
You must be available the entire time on both days since extra work can last anywhere from 10 – 12 hours / day and we will probably be starting early in the morning.
If you have the right look and would like to be considered please email a recent photo. Please make sure it’s a clear photo and that you are the only one in the picture since the director will need to review the photos submitted.
We are filming in Hamilton but there will be a bus provided from Toronto and back for anyone that requires it.
