I am personally assisting in registering talent for the Netflix television drama series “Mindhunter”, which had been previously cast by Mosser Casting. The industry leading casting team of Bill Marinella and Andrea Hume have officially taken over casting duties, and are now accepting registration for talent available to work in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Shooting will continue through December, 2016. Both adults and minors are welcome to register. The series also needs people with 1970’s and earlier vehicles. To be considered, all actors, dancers, extras, and crew members MUST have legal eligibility to work in the entertainment industry in Pittsburgh. Details below.
This series is based the novel “Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit” written by Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas. Set in 1979, the show centers on the inquisitive and skilled FBI Agent Bill Tench. Along with fellow serial killer investigator in the behavioral science unit, FBI agent Holden Ford, Tench interviews serial killers to help them solve current murders.
Starring in “Mindhunter” is Holt McCallany as Bill Tench, and Jonathan Groff as Holden Ford. Also starring is Cotter Smith as Shepard, Unit Chief of FBI National Training Academy; and Anna Torv as Wendy, a psychologist. “Mindhunter” is executive produced by Academy Award winner Charlize Theron and two-time Academy Award nominee David Fincher. Also executive producing is Jennifer Orme Erwin, who acquired the television rights to the novel. “Mindhunter” will air on Netflix in 2017.
