A new film called Cornerman starring Anthony Hopkins is casting extras and lead characters later this month. The film is directed by Rupert Friend and it is about the life of world famous boxer Mike Tyson. The casting team needs various extras to play boxers, and they still need to fill the feature role of Mike Tyson. If you look similar to Mike Tyson, you will have priority over other actors during auditions because they want to find an actor that closely resembles him.
Cornerman is about the legendary boxing trainer Cus D’Amato and how he trained Mike Tyson to become the youngest boxing heavyweight champion of the world. Cus D’Amato will be played by Anthony Hopkins while the roles for young and old versions of Mike Tyson have yet to be cast. This is a tremendous opportunity to appear in a historically accurate take on one of the greatest legacies of the last generation.
Casting teams need various athletic models and actors to play boxers in a gym and trainers. They need mostly African-American men to play boxers in Tyson’s local gym for several different scenes. MUST BE 5’9 OR TALLER.
Casting Auditions: February 15th in New York and Atlanta
Filming Date: February 20th and March 1st in New York and Atlanta
This is a great opportunity to appear in a feature film starring Anthony Hopkins and other famous actors. Many of the roles have yet to be filled, so this is a prime opportunity for you to audition as an extra and work your way up to a featured role if desired. The casting team does not have an actor for young and old Mike Tyson, so if you fit that description and impress at the auditions you may see yourself starring in a huge role!
