I've spent the past few days calling girls to schedule auditions, taping auditions on camera, and calling dance schools all over the country looking for a girl to play the lead role opposite Matt Damon. The role is obviously being offered to stars first. The other day I listened to my boss schedule a meeting with the movie’s director and Jessica Biel. Actors on my level have to audition, Jessica Biel gets to decide where she would like to meet so they can "talk" about the part.
[Role description] Female, between the ages of 23-33. A dancer, ballet, lyrical jazz... in the movie she must be believable as a ballerina, OPEN ethnicity, that means she could be black, asian, hispanic... she is comfortable with herself, confident about approaching people, attractive and you need to have some acting experience.
Auditions are happening in New York this week and next.
