Remember that Kevin James MMA movie we talked about awhile back? It’s still happening, and it now has a name- “Here Comes the Boom”. Even better, you can potentially be a part of it!
The casting director for the movie is looking to bring in some real MMA people as well as actors to appear in the film, which will be held in Boston. The first casting call is for professional or amateur MMA fighters, referees, and announcers. The company is also looking for actors, 18-22, who look young for both principal and extra roles as a core group of high school students throughout the film. Men should be clean-shaven. Everyone should look and dress as young looking as possible. Please be sure to bring a headshot and resume to the audition.
People involved in MMA are invited to audition on Friday, February 18, and actors are invited on Saturday, February 19. Both casting calls will be held at 129 Braintree Street, Suite 107, Boston, MA 02134. The casting call for fighters on Friday is from 10 AM-5PM, and the actors on Saturday from 10AM – 2 PM. Directions can be found at www.bostoncasting.com. You can also email your headshot and resume to Ashley [at] bostoncasting.com. Good luck to those who try out, I am actually quite tempted to go down there in person and give it a shot… is it time for The Fight Nerd to go Hollywood?
