Casting Call: Netflix – The Get Down

The Get Down - Netflix - Casting Call

The Grant Wilfley Casting company is looking for background actors for film and television. One of their current projects is a new Netflix series called “The Get Down,” directed by Academy Award Nominee Baz Luhrmann. It’s about the birth of hip hop in the 1970’s, set in the Bronx.

They are mainly in need of Latino and African American men and women (of all ages). Since the show takes place in the 1970’s, hair is very important, so we are seeking people with at least 1.5-2 inches of hair growth on men, and natural non-processed hair for women. AFROS ARE HIGHLY ENCOURAGED!

A wardrobe fitting is required for our show, but it is paid. The day of work will also be paid! It is highly possible that anyone that gets fit will be working multiple dates throughout the series.

Email current photos and phone number to with the SUBJECT LINE reading: Flyer, Name, Union Status, and Phone Number. Please note height, weight, and clothing sizes in the body of the email.
