Casting Call to Upper Extremity Amputtee Women for Coen Brothers' Latest Movie - True Grit 

Andres Velasquez


Paramount Pictures is seeking a WOMAN MISSING HER LEFT ARM to be a photo double in TRUE GRIT, a new film by Joel & Ethan Coen.


Character description

Photo double for adult Mattie Ross: This woman must be MISSING HER LEFT ARM. Optimally, she would be around 5'8", 138 lbs, slender to medium build. However, we are open to various looks.


To submit:

Submit the following to texascasting2010@gmail.com

  • Self Photo: Photos should be non-glamorous, simple snapshots (incl face and body. It's best to wear a tank top & shorts).
     
  • Measurements: include height, weight, bust, waist & hips. Incl sizes, such as shoe, dress, pants, etc.
     
  • Contact information: include age, phone numbers & place of residence.



Additional Information

Rate of pay: TBD

Note: TRUE GRIT is shooting in Austin, TX. However, we are open to nationwide submissions.

Background info about Mattie Ross & TRUE GRIT: 14 year old Mattie is a simple, tough as nails young woman. Her steely nerves and straightforward manner are a shocking contrast to the way women behaved in the early century. She's possessed of true grit and plenty of determination.

The film is a remake of the western that earned john Wayne his Academy Award as one-eyed sheriff Rooster Cogburn in 1969. In the Coens' screenplay, "True Grit" will be told from the point of view of Mattie Ross.

The movie will begin in 1928, at a point when Mattie tells how she avenged her father's murder back in 1873, when she was only 14 years old.

For more information call 512-637-6775.
