It sounds like there was quite a turnout for the open casting call for the Coen Brothers movie "A Serious Man" in Minneapolis recently.
The search is on for a 12 year old boy a 16 year old girls and an 80 year old man to play a rabbi.
Apparently there were more than 500 people there before noon on the big day, and there have been several days of call backs since. The final selections will be made by next month.
We heard from the sister of one aspiring actor who said they allowed to keep a page of the script to which she read at the call back, which to her mind was pretty cool in itself.
Anyone else have anything to report?
