Morgan Casting is thrilled to announce that “Great Escapes with Morgan Freeman” is returning for a second season, and they are back to hunt some criminals…actually, they’re hunting for people who LOOK like the criminals – and others – that will be featured in this docuseries about infamous jailbreaks!
Shooting has begun in Natchez and will continue for several weeks. A broad spectrum of people of every age, ethnicity, and gender will be needed to fill non-speaking roles. Pro actors may suggest through their agents or Actors Access, but non-pros are also welcome to submit for consideration via the email address provided below.
Because all roles are silent-on-camera, Morgan Casting is seeking talented performers who can bring these roles to life through convincing action! They would love to cast as closely as possible in look, height, and eye color; however, please do not limit your suggestion based on eye color, and feel free to go up or down a few inches with height.
Pays $200/day for the following roles, for up to 5 days max of work, exact number of work days still TBD. Production is open to covering hotel for those who may live a reasonable drive from Natchez. On set experience welcomed, but not required. Must be non-union.
If you participated in Great Escapes last season, you are encouraged to suggest yourself again this year!
NOTE: COVID testing will be required of all performers and covered by production. All talent must be non-union.
