We are currently ONLY looking for the following types.
Extreme characters and hideously unattractive types, ages 18-50. Odd body shapes or very lean to extremely skinny. Missing teeth, wandering eyes and serial killer looks with real long hair & beards. Wigs & makeup are not what we're looking for. We also need little people, very large sumo wrestler types, extremely tall or extremely short people, albinos, amputees. Any size or shape that is NOT average is best. All ethnicities. Mostly men, very few women.
Asian Men & Women:
We need tons of Asian people of all ages and types to play Townspeople, Shopkeepers, Prostitutes, Pirates etc. All shapes, sizes and ages over 18.
If you are not one of these specific types
please do not attend the open call.
We are not seeking anyone that does not fit the above specifications. This means if you are not Asian or are not an extreme character type, you will not be seen at the open call. You can mail in a submission or drop off a photo at our office.
If you attended our first open casting call in December 2004, you need not attend. We are still working with those submissions. Please only attend if you have changed your look or your phone numbers and fit the specifications.
Please bring a current color photo.
Photos can be candid, digital, 35mm or Polaroid, they do not have to be professional. We will not be accepting headshots at the open call at all. You do not need to bring one. We will have you fill out a registration card and attach your photo to it. Your photo should not be larger than 3 x 5 or it will not fit on the card. You MUST NOT have a wig, fake beard or eye patch on in your photo.
Please make sure you look like your photo. If your hair length or anything has changed please make sure that your photo reflects this. If you do not have a current color photo to bring with you, we will take a Polaroid for you for $ 2.00 each. If you want us to take your photo please bring $ 2.00 cash (exact change.)
Please bring a pencil. We do not use pen and will not provide writing utensils.
If you would like to dress the part . . . you may, but when you meet the casting directors you must be ready to quickly remove anything on your head or face. We want to see what you really look like.
You will not have to be prepared for an audition. This is simply a way for our casting directors to see you in person and know that you look like your photo.
We are only seeing adults ages 18 and over. Please do not bring your children, we do not need any minors for these films. If a need for children does arise, we will post it here on our website and record it on our Pirate Hotline. IDs will be required for anyone who looks under the age of 18.
Sag members are not required to attend but are more than welcome.
This is not a paid interview
If you are unable to attend the open casting call you may mail in a photo.
Please follow the following instructions for mailing in your submission.
Do not mail an 8x10 photo UNLESS it has a current color photo attached to it. We do not cast from headshots alone--please do not waste your photo and postage by sending us an 8 x 10 alone. In fact, a headshot is not required at all. You can attach a digital, 35mm or preferably a Polaroid to your headshot and include the following information.
Home Phone, Work Phone, Cell Phone,
Pager & Emergency Contact
We will not call your agent to hire you as an extra so we do not need your agent or manager's number.
Height, Weight, Coat size, Dress size,
all measurements & shoe size.
Special abilities and experience.
Dates available to work (and dates that you are definitely not available.)
Please make sure your submission is stapled. Do not send anything registered or certified mail that requires a signature because you are mailing to a post office box.
Please write the role you are submitting for on the front of the envelope

Any additional casting calls will be available to actors that are registered with us.
Because of the ease of access, we give priority to actors who are in our internal database. Please do not register with us unless you are available to work on any or all of our other projects. For registration information you can call (818) 623-7040. You must be a Southern California resident to register. You must be over 18 years of age and legal to work in the state of California.
You may not be considered for extra roles when you live in other cities or countries
There are enough actors/extras in Los Angeles that can be used to fill our calls.
Principal actors (speaking parts) may be flown in for specific parts but usually are name actors and are submitted by your agent to the principal casting department.
We are not doing any auditions for speaking parts at this time. When we have auditions we will post them on our casting hotline, Breakdown Services and Back Stage West.
We do not accept unsolicited E-mailed submissions. Whenever we are casting a specific role and are accepting E-mailed submissions, we give out a message in the casting notice to identify the role in the subject line. If the message is not correct we delete the E-mail immediately.
Bottom line. If you are local to Los Angeles you will have an opportunity to work on the sequel if you have the correct look and skill. Stay tuned to our hotline to hear what's coming up. Our Pirate hotline number will be updated with casting notices and information throughout 2005. Please make a note of it (818) 725-2905. If for any reason the number is busy, it means that it's overloaded with callers at the same time. Please hang up and try again later.
Do not try to contact anyone else regarding this film. Being pushy is not going to help you get chosen. You will be cast if you follow instructions and are right for the part. Calling the studio, principal casting directors, the location for the open call or our registration office will get you nowhere because these people have no input on how people will be picked and no information about extras casting. If you have a question that has not been answered by this website page or by our hotline you may E-mail us the question. Please make sure you put the question in the subject line-this is the only way you will have your question answered. Piratesmack@aol.com Again, please make sure that we haven't answered your question already.
It can take months for us to call you. Since the film is shooting over the entire year we may not need your type for a long time. Please be patient. Also, make sure that you give us enough phone numbers so if you move we can still find you. Give us your Mom, neighbor, friend etc. as an alternate number. If we need you we will call them all.
Once again, we do not need anyone under the age of 18 years old.
Thanks everybody!! See you soon.
