Casting teams need actors and models for the new season of one of Netflix’s biggest new shows. They need all types of actors to portray people at a convention and models for a red carpet scene. They also need Native American actors for several other scenes.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is about a 29 year old New Yorker that finds herself in the middle of urban life after being rescued by a cult in Indiana. She was held captive in an underground bunker by a cult for 15 years before finally being rescued. While many might think a person held hostage for so long would have a dark outlook on life, Kimmy is the opposite. She sees her freedom as new hope for a brand new exciting life in the heart of New York City.
The show was created by Netflix with Ellie Kemper leading the way as the lead character, Kimmy. Kemper was chosen for this role after her longtime stint with The Office came to an end. She was chosen because of her energetic and innocent humor that captivated audiences for years during her role as Erin Hannon on NBC. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was created by Tina Fey in 2015 and has garnered millions of viewers and praise since then. After the success of season two, Netflix announced that it would be ordering 13 more episodes for season three set to premiere sometime this year.
With Netflix announcing a new season, there are plenty of opportunities for aspiring and established actors to find roles. This early casting call is strictly for people to play convention-goers, red carpet celebrities, and models.
