Casting Call for Cormac McCarthy's The Road

Casting agent Nancy Mosser is looking for skinny, grungy actors and extras. The film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel that will star Viggo Mortenson and Charlize Theron will begin shooting in the Pittsburgh area in March.

It's set in a post-cataclysmic America. The few survivors who were not seared by an unspecified fiery disaster are divided into two classes -- barbaric cannibals or their prey.

Men and woman ages 18 to 50 are needed for eight speaking roles and 30 extras.

Producers are looking for people with minimal muscle tone, long stringy hair and a starved, ravaged appearance. They need men capable of growing a full beard.

Also needed: a thin man of any ethnicity who is missing one or both legs. No previous acting experience is needed for this role.
