Sister Spirit looking for extras

Hamilton Street -Sister Spirit.JPGSister Spirt, the movie that's been shooting in Albany, is looking for "sisters" to be extras in scenes next week.

An email from the casting director is after the jump -- it also includes details about who's starring in the movie (Alicia Silverstone, Vincent D'Onofrio and a few other actors you might recognize).

Oh, and if you play the didgeridoo, here's the chance you've been waiting for...

This is Rita Powers, I am the Casting Director for Sister Spirit.

This film is an R rated, irreverent chick comedy starring June Raphael and Casey Wilson. The two of them set the stage for themselves as comedy actors a few years back with a long running show called Rode Hard and Put Away Wet. They've since starred in many comedies and television shows and wrote the film, Bride Wars. A host of other comedy stars are in this film including Alicia Silverstone, Vincent D'Onofrio, Sandy Martin, John Cryer, Epatha Merkerson and more.

We will be shooting the scenes for 'Camp Sister Spirit' here in the Albany area on August 10th and 11th. We are looking for a dozen 'sisters' to play as extras in the film as the community members.' Extras will be paid SAG scale extra rate of $135.00-8 hours for their time which will likely be an 8 -10 hour day. Movie making is interesting and fun but can also feel like a long day.

In the script it calls for a sister who plays a drum and a sister who plays a digiridoo if there happen to be any in the area! Our director would love to see digital pics of anyone interested if possible.

I'm not sure I would mention somebody *wrote* Bride Wars. It made for short reviews though: "Bride Wars is a bad movie. It is a very, very bad movie. Do not go see it. Unless you are an older lady with a very low threshold for entertainment, you will regret it. I have wasted more time writing about it than the movie deserves."

I rather liked Bride Wars. Saw it in a packed theater last year. Sure it's a chick flick, but so what? Surely, if men don't like chick flicks they shouldn't review them!

I have been in touch with the local talent agency/ casting. From what I was told, they are looking for 12 "butch looking lesbians" ages 30 to 60 for next Tuesday and Wednesday. (1 to play bongos would be great!)

I'm not sure if the description above for 'sisters' is very clear. But they could also be expanding the type of women they are looking for. Who knows!

The Scoop

For a decade All Over Albany was a place for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. It was kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who could help you find out what's up. AOA stopped publishing at the end of 2018.
