Robert Pattinson “Water For Elephants” Movie Open Casting Call

Attention Robert Pattinson Fans: Here’s your chance to star alongside the screen heartthrob in his next movie. The Twilight actor is set to co-star with Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon in the upcoming period piece Water for Elephants, (based on the historical novel by Sara Gruen) and the film’s producers have launched an open casting call to hunt for extras.

The casting call will be held this Saturday April 17 in the City of Angels. Here’s what the filmmakers are looking for: “Caucasian men with very 1930s looking period faces,” “African American men with short 1930s period haircuts,” and “Caucasian women with shoulder length hair or shorter, size 6 or smaller.”

The Craigslist posting also specifies that applicants have “no piercings, tattoos, no breast implants, no artificial nails, no highlighted or colored hair.”

Water For Elephants kicks off filming in Los Angeles later this year for a projected 2011 release.
