Casting call: Short film seeks actors

From the Hudson Valley Film Commission: A film company shooting in Sullivan County later this month is looking for cast members on short notice to play several roles in their short film, "My Pain Is Worse Than Your Pain."

One very specific role they're looking to fill: The company needs a Caucasian arm or leg amputee, 18 to 23 years old, to play the role of "Frank Jr."

The film is based on a short story published in the January 2010 of Harper's Magazine, by writer T.C. Boyle. (The story can be read here, if you have a subscription to Harper's.)

The Hudson Valley Film Commission often posts on their blog about local casting calls, film jobs, and inquiries by film companies looking for shooting locations and housing for cast members.
