Yo ho, would-be pirates! Open casting call for extras for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN III on July 30th!

An open casting call for extras for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN III will take place on Saturday, July 30th, between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm, at the Ricardo Montalban Theatre in Los Angeles. Please note that all actors must be over age 18, and that the casting directors are looking for specific physical types in a very narrow range. If you don’t fit their description, don’t attend! Actors with the wrong “look” will not be seen by the agents.

If you fit this (sadly unflattering) description, you could find yourself playing a pirate: “Extreme characters and hideously unattractive types, ages 18-50. Odd body shapes or very lean to extremely skinny. Missing teeth, wandering eyes and serial killer looks with real long hair & beards. Wigs & makeup are not what we’re looking for. We also need little people, very large sumo wrestler types, extremely tall or extremely short people, albinos, amputees. Any size or shape that is NOT average is best. All ethnicities. Mostly men, very few women.”

The casting directors are also looking for “tons of Asian people of all ages and types to play Townspeople, Shopkeepers, Prostitutes, Pirates etc. All shapes, sizes and ages over 18.”

According to the call notice, “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN III will begin production August 2005 and shoot through the middle of next year.” This is a somewhat longer shooting schedule than original estimates.
