Role Details:

Mafia/Triads/Thugs/Mobsters (12)

There is no pay for this role.

This role is open to non-union members.



Ethnic Look:

Special Skills:
Firearms, military, athletic training preferable but not necessary

Cold-hearted killers decked out in suits, the mob brings their best and brightest, rather, buffest, to the meeting. Equals of the SWAT officers that hold their ground in a firefight, they are equipped with the best weapons the black market can provide. Physically intense roles that require getting hit by paintballs, debris, and squibs, firearms and athletic training is preferable but not necessary. We are not quite sure what type of mobsters they are yet and are willing to audition actors of any race that has a mob: Russian, Hispanic, Asian, Irish, Italian, etc. Tattoos and other 'thug-like' physical characteristics are also preferred.
- Any, 20-40, medium-heavy build, above 5' 8?.

Project Details:



Detective John Larsen arrives at the scene of a mysterious crime. Dozens of dead bodies litter the ground in what appears to be a violent massacre of a group of cops & organized criminals working toge

Without going into too much details, we are essentially producing a high-octane & somewhat commercialized action-thriller shot at the no-budget indie-student level by the Film & Photography Society at the University of California here in Riverside. As this is a non-profit film catered directly for the festival circuit, we cannot afford to pay monetary compensation for services rendered. However, I believe that this will be a wonderful avenue for exposing your talents to the world as well as networking, marketing and showcasing your talents to like-minded filmmaking enthusiasts in the area. Individuals keen on crew membership or production assisting are more than welcome to apply too. We are fully equipped with a Canon XL2, Panasonic DVX 100A and HVX 200, Manfrotto tripods, fig rigs, crane jibs, and steadicams, etc.

It will require over two weekends of shooting towards the end of April and start of May. Shooting is tentatively scheduled for May 5th and 6th with free meals provided for these two days. The script has yet to be finalized but the following synopsis basically sums up the whole movie:

We are holding auditions at 'Costo Hall', the University of California, Riverside on April 8th and April 14th (Sunday) at 5:00 PM. Please e-mail in advance to set up an appointment as well as obtain a more detailed map and directions.

Please do not hesitate to e-mail me at this site's Private Messaging System (must be logged in) if you have any further inquiries, feedback, opinions, suggestions, questions, or comments. Please e-mail to also set up an appointment.

Thanks and I look forward to your submissions soon. Have a great day ahead.
