WILMINGTON, N.C., Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Fincannon & Associates Casting Company announced today that they are casting the upcoming Touchstone Pictures/Beacon Pictures film starring Kevin Costner & Ashton Kutcher entitled "The Guardian." The film will be directed by Andrew Davis ("Holes" and "The Fugitive") and will shoot in New Orleans beginning November 14, 2005 and film through February 2006.
The film documents the intensive training process of US Coast Guard rescue swimmers and their personal and physical sacrifices required of the job.
Therefore, they are looking to cast excellent swimmers to portray student/candidates of the "A" school for the Coast Guard Rescue School. The swimmers cast for these speaking roles will begin training in Late September and October. These swimmers will be part of an ensemble cast that will work throughout the production.
"We are looking for competitive swimmers of any ethnicity who would be comfortable in challenging ocean conditions ... including retired Navy Seals, athletes, and those who compete in Water Polo, Diving, Crew, Triathlons, or are Certified Life Guards." Said Casting Directors Mark & Lisa Mae Fincannon. "Most candidates of the "A" school are in their early to mid 20's and the requirements for these roles will be as grueling as entering in the "A" school itself." They added. All candidates must be able to handle crisis situations in the water and be available throughout the duration of the training and filming.
If you think you have what it takes, the Fincannon's will be doing interview/auditions throughout the Southeastern United States during the week of August 15-19, 2005 in Atlanta, New Orleans, and Wilmington, North Carolina.
If interested, contact the Fincannon's via email at Fincannon@aol.com with your name, phone number and photo (if possible) and you will be contacted about location and time for interview.
