  • "42" casting call
    Area hopefuls participated in an open casting call for the film "42" Tuesday at Eastgate Town Center.

A second casting call for the feature film “42” has been scheduled for Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the central court at the Eastgate Town Center in Brainerd.

The Chattanooga Department of Education, Arts & Culture and the Chattanooga SE Tennessee Film Commission issued a release stating that casting directors say they’re needing hundreds more to be “background talent” for the film.

The release said plans call for shooting in this area for five weeks beginning in May.

All positions in the film that is based on the life story of baseball great Jackie Robinson will be paid, officials said.

Harrison Ford of “Indiana Jones” fame will star in the film.

The release said those being sought include casting ages of 18 and over and “people with the 1940s look.” It was suggested those coming out do so dressed in their “best 1940s attire.”

It was also stated that information is also available at the Facebook page for “CL Casting Tennessee.”
