Francine Maisler Casting is conducting a search for Smithville citizens to be considered for speaking and non-speaking parts in an upcoming major Hollywood family movie to be filmed in Texas. We are looking for people of all ages and ethnicities, and are especially looking for: older adults with weathered faces, people of all ages with interesting, expressive faces, expectant mothers, outdoorsmen, children and families.

There will be an open casting call held on Saturday, January 12th in SMITHVILLE, TX at: Smithville City Hall, 317 Main Street, Smithville, TX 78957 from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM. For driving directions, lodging, and dining information, please call the Smithville Chamber of Commerce at 512-237-2313 or visit their website at

The casting call will consist of a brief talk with a member of the casting team and possibly an interview on camera. All participants should bring a non-returnable photo. Interested parties may call our Information Line at (512) 637-9782 or email us at, though no appointment is necessary.

While acting experience is not necessary, the production will provide compensation on the scale of professional actors. Filmmakers are specifically looking for people with timeless, non-modern, or unique looks.

As Bob Hudgins, the Director of the Texas Film Commission, has said, “The filmmakers are known to us and are well-respected both nationally and internationally. I assure you that this is a professional, legitimate film project, and one that I expect we’ll all be proud of.”

While details of the project are being kept confidential during the casting process, the filmmakers have been nominated for Academy Awards and have produced numerous films that are considered to be critically acclaimed around the world.

Filming will commence in March in Central Texas.

Francine Maisler Casting has cast films such as “Spider-Man”, “Miami Vice” and “As Good As It Gets.”
