    Look like a cop? Come audition for 'Frozen Ground'

    Look like a cop? Come audition for 'Frozen Ground'
    Hollywood Alaska : Look like a cop? Come audition for 'Frozen Ground' | adn.com

    Auditions began this week in Anchorage for the serial killer thriller “The Frozen Ground,” with producers expecting to hire as many as 45 Alaska actors for speaking roles.

    The tale, starring Nicolas Cage and John Cusack, is based on the real-life, 1983 capture of “butcher baker” Robert Hansen. If you look like a cop, in other words, you may be in luck.

    “We’re going to reach out to all state troopers and members of the police department who are interested in acting and extras roles,” said Deborah Schildt, the Alaska casting director for the film. Schildt began auditioning actors Wednesday with casting expected to continue until filming begins in mid-October.
    They are probably looking for 'technical consultants' too.
    Verified Libra- There sure are a lot of people born in August around here.

    I wonder if I could pull it off?

    Probably not. When they were filming "Topgun" in the mid-80s , the director and producers moved to another hanger and buildings at NAS Miramar as stand ins for Topgun's real hanger and building because they didn't look "authentic" enough.

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    What if they cast you as the criminal?

    Crap! I look nothing like a cop! (There goes my road to fame and fortune.)
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    That might be tough to pull off looking like a cop if you are a cop I would assume.

    NO!

    They showed up on a few of my calls though so I may be in the background. If they air the ATV pursuit, I started that one.

    Ha! My chief and I were talking about this the other day. He had someone guess he was a cop and he is a very large guy. We were discussing how this happens. I can be in a t shirt and shorts and someone will pick me out as a cop.
