Muhammad Ali - Casting Call
Potato, part of ITV Studios, are currently casting for a new documentary about Muhammad Ali.
The documentary series contains dramatic reconstruction which examines the medical reasons behind the deaths of famous people who have died. The series is non scripted although artists are required to do some ad libbing for dramatic effect. The most important criteria is that the artists are lookalikes to the original characters. Each episode shoots the drama reconstruction across two days on location in London.
They are currently looking for the following characters:
- Young Muhammad Ali aged in his 30's, athletic build, and;
- Muhammad Ali in his later years 45-58 (Potato could cast younger and 'age up' for the right person)
Filming dates still TBC. But it will take place week commencing 12th of June for 2 x days (13th-16th)
- Lead characters at £400 per day x 2 days or £500 per day if only cast for 1 x day (Old Ali)
- Supporting characters @ £200 per day (Young Ali)
