Written by and starring Halley Feiffer (2011 Theater World Award winner for House of Blue Leaves) and current Juilliard drama student Ryan Spahn ("Polish Wedding"), the production is currently seeking New Yorkers interested in being part of the film.

Shooting throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens will begin Aug. 19.

The film is being produced by Christopher Sepulveda, Geoffrey Soffer and Michael Anderson.

The producers are currently looking to cast an ensemble of 50 actors for such roles as AA members, paparazzi, press representatives, movie premiere attendees, talent agency staff workers, waiters, cafe patrons, an old lady, a cab driver, a gawky teenager and more. There is no pay for these roles, although an on-screen credit will be offered.

Those who wish to be considered for the film should submit information to MoreFamousFilm@gmail.com, including name, mobile phone number, e-mail address, a headshot and available shooting days between Aug. 17-Sept. 9.
