Boys and Russian or Ukrainian men looking for their big Hollywood break might get their ticket to the silver screen Saturday in Allston.
According to its website, Boston Casting is looking for young male actors between the ages of 10 and 12 who are “a tough street kid type.”
“It’s an amazing role … and a huge part in the film,” owner Angela Peri told the Boston Globe.
The film in questionis “Proud Mary,” which stars Taraji P. Henson of the Oscar-nominated “Hidden Figures.” Henson also won a best actress Golden Globe for her role as Cookie Lyon on the Fox hit“Empire.”
Speaking of hit, Henson will play a hit woman in “Proud Mary,” “whose life is upturned when she meets a young boy who awakens the maternal instinct she never knew she had,” Variety reported last month.
Boston Casting is also looking for Ukrainian or Russian men between the ages of 20 and 60, who are fluent in either language or able to do a believable accent.
The casting will take place Saturday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Boston Casting office at 129 Braintree St. in Allston. Interested actors should bring a headshot and resume or photo and bio.
“Proud Mary” is slated to begin shooting in the Boston area in April.
