Before they were looking for a "Pretty-Handsome Harvard/Yale Type" to stand next to Billy Zane; now, "fit" will do. Seems Twentieth Century Fox had some trouble finding extras with whom they could fill the offices of Sterling Law: Two episodes into shooting the six-eps-ordered The Deep End for ABC, the production company has once more put out a casting call for warm bodies to finish out filming in Dallas (they were in Northwest Dallas yesterday, matter of fact), which should wrap middle of next month. Here, then, the full notice, shipped to Unfair Park last night with an extra exclamation point for "urgent":

Twentieth Century Fox Television is in Dallas filming a new television series for the ABC Television network titled The Deep End. Starring Billy Zane, the production recently completed the shooting of Episode One and are currently filming Episode Two. The Extras Casting Department for the show is actively searching Dallas for good looking, young, fit, upscale people to be cast as background for all the remaining episodes. If you fit this description and are between the ages of 20-35, then they are looking for you! Please submit the following to abcthedeepend@gmail.com

  1. A Clear Picture of Yourself
  2. Your Contact Info
  3. Your Height & Weight
  4. Your Schedule Availability
Make sure all information is on the opening page of the email. All roles are paying gigs. You MUST be a Texas resident! We are also urgently needing good looking males between the ages of 20-40 who are physically fit. If you have previously submitted a picture, please do not resend.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
