A big thanks to Ms M for passing this Runaways movie casting call info... I need you to think of Butthead telling Beavis, "hey this is prutty cool" before you dig in.

Open Casting Call for the Feature Film: The Runaways

Starring: Dakota Fanning, Kristin Stewart

Seeking the following SUPER-SPECIFIC types:

• Hollywood Party Types
• 18-to-look-younger Roller Skaters
• High School Types
• Club-Goers
• Joan's Street Punk Friends
• Rough Crowd Types
• Preppy College Crowd
• Japanese Businessmen/Journalists
• Japanese People of All General Types
• Japanese 18-to-look-younger
• Teacher Types (reference photo only, NOT for open call)

Casting Notes:
PLEASE review the above photographs so you know the look we are seeking.
If you do not have this look, it is not necessary to attend this casting call because each look is EXTREMELY specific.

This is for SAG and Non-Union talent. Everyone, at all times, MUST have the right hair. This is not Austin Powers, over-the-top 1970s. This is REAL, a reproduction of true events, VERY authentic rock’n’roll in the 1970s.

Girls' hair should be long, straight, or wavy—no modern cuts or colors—only natural colors. Hair can be shorter, but not super short. Hair was not stick-straight; no appliances to straighten the hair were used.

Guys' hair should be shaggy, longish, or completely long—no crew cuts.
Hair for both sexes was generally parted in the middle and worn long or waved back Farrah Fawcett style. 18-to-look-younger guys should have no facial hair. No visible tattoos except for Joan’s Street Punk Friends!! No tattoos on either gender!

Everyone should be on the thin/skinny side. Clothes are provided for the most part, but any clothing you can provide is welcome.

New faces to Hollywood OS are very welcome, especially all Japanese types, 18-to-look-younger types, and Club-Goer types.

At the Open Call:
You MUST come dressed and camera-ready for a photograph. Again, your hair, makeup, and wardrobe should reflect the look in the photographs. (Please do NOT wear the color white.) Open call is for the aforementioned types, but there is no guarantee of work.

I'm sorry I don't have the photos... this takes me back to when Jake and I went to see the real thing in London. Now did we see them in Glasgow before or after that?

A message from the Monorail Film Club


We'd like to remind everyone that as well as selling records we run a film club every month at the GFT. It's a very informal film club and open to all. We are now in our third year and have had some amazing screenings, special events and illuminating discussions in Cafe Cosmo!

This Sunday we are screening one of the great Italian cult films of the 1960s, Pasolini's Theorem (Teorema). The story of Teorema is simple. A mysterious stranger arrives at a bourgeois household in Milan and successively seduces the son, the mother, the daughter, and the father, not forgetting the maid.
The consequences for each are decisive and as Pasolini brilliantly maps out the disintegration of the fragile family we begin to understand his allegory which merges his ideas on social forces, religion and sexuality. An intense yet rewarding film with a brilliant Morricone score.

It will be introduced by Stephen McRobbie from The Pastels. It would be great to see you there.

Tickets can be reserved from the GFT box office on 0141 332 6535.
