A new movie called “The Fixer” starring James Franco is looking to cast the lead role and is having open auditions for actors in the San Francisco Bay Area. Producers are hoping to find an actor who can portray a 28 year old Afghan journalist.

The Indie film is seeking the next break out star and he must be Afghan. “The Fixer” stars James Franco and will be directed by Ian Olds and written by Olds and Paul Felton. The film is inspired by individuals called “fixers” who are hired by international journalists when they are in other countries to help them with translations and other arrangements that need to be made for the journalist abroad. Olds has already directed a documentary entitled “Fixer: The Taking of Ajmal Naqshbandi,” a few years back which won an award at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The movie tells the story of a ex war journalist who, after being exiled from Afghanistan finds himself the U.S and in the Bay Area. He takes a job for a small town newspaper reporting on petty crime. He becomes entangled in a larger story and gets pulled into a conflicting situation as part of his new, not so great, job.

James Franco gets the other lead role as Lindsay — an unstable craftsman. IMDB also reports that Melissa Leo will join Franco in this film.

James Franco New Movie

The film is casting the lead role of Osman: The films lead and the journalist at the center of the story.

An open casting call will be held at 39155 Liberty St in Fremont, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 16

If you are not sure where Fremont is, you can check this google maps link to get the location.

To make the film as authentic as possible, producers have decided to cast an Afghan in the lead role and are giving anyone that shows up to the open auditions a shot at this.

The film will begin production this summer in the Bay Area and also plans to do some filming in Morocco which would be the set for the Afghanistan scenes.

Producers expect to start production in July in Northern California, where 90% of the script takes place. “The Fixer” may also shoot in Morocco, which would stand in for Afghanistan.

If attending the auditions, you must bring a head shot and a resume to hand over to the film’s casting directors. You also must be an Afghan or Afghan-American to be considered for the films principal role. Producers are warning that there may be some wait time in line and the wait will depend on the turnout. Also, the film’s producers have stated that no experience as an actor is necessary, but I’m sure it can be helpful.

K POP HIGH
SEEKING TALENT FOR A NEW TV SERIES:
K POP HIGH

Casting very strong singers, dancers and actors
K POP HIGH is a mash up of Glee and the Korean Pop aesthetic, set in a boarding school with a performing arts program. The series follows three girls who don’t know each other upon their arrival at school but discover that they all share a sensibility for the K POP vibe.

LOOKING FOR THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERS:

SUN HI, Female, 16yrs
Killer singer! Sun Hi is funky and free-spirited. She’s a dreamer and has huge life aspirations. She wants to be a pop star, she wants to fall in love, and she wants to star in movies… she wants, and wants, and wants! As a performer, Sun Hi is creative and open-minded. She’s always wiling to try new things in her songs, choreography and staging. We love her because her energy is high and because she is willing to take risks to follow her dream. We laugh with her because her ambition is often misguided and gets her into trouble.

JODI, Female, 15yrs
Jodi was brought up in New York. She is loud and proud. Jodi is the fashionista of the group. She will keep her crew on the cutting edge of hip. Jodi can sing and dance, but her training is minimal. It’s all street informed. Hip Hop dance moves and Rap music are areas she’s comfortable in.

CORKI, Female, 16yrs
Corki is the wealthy only child to a Korean business tycoon. Corki is familiar with boarding schools as she has spent her life in them. Corki is a little aloof. Her comedy comes from her super rich upbringing. We love her because she really is innocent about how the rest of the world lives. Corki is under constant pressure from her father to do well in school. Her father sees K POP as frivolous, unlike ballet and the violin, in which his daughter has trained and excelled. Her classical ballet training will become an emotional counterpoint in her stories as she fuses ballet with Jodi’s Hip Hop style. Corki sings well and rocks the violin, once she loosens up (NOTE: ability to play violin is not required).

CALEB, Male, 15yrs
A dancer and singer, Caleb is obsessed with K POP culture. He knows every band, every song, every star. He believes it to be the next big cultural thing and wants to be part of it. Caleb often has a difficult time concentrating. He was sent to boarding school because he was falling behind in his town school. In reality, Caleb’s trouble paying attention comes from his high intellect. Caleb is a genius. He’s a brilliant songwriter/producer. Caleb thinks faster than others, but he can get so far ahead of himself that he often forgets where he is going.
