If you’ve ever wanted to star in a movie pro­duced by Tom Hanks, this may be your chance. And as an added bonus, you get to brush shoul­ders with his­tory.

“Park­land,” a movie about the John F. Kennedy as­sas­si­na­tion, will be film­ing in the Austin area in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary and the pro­duc­tion is cast­ing speak­ing and non­speak­ing roles. The cast­ing agents are look­ing for “real peo­ple.” Pro­fes­sional ac­tors with agents will be turned away.

“We want au­then­tic Texan faces. All ages, old and young,” Di­rec­tor Peter Landesman said.

Speak­ing roles be­ing cast in­clude a Lyn­don Baines


Pres­i­dent John F. Kennedy is seen rid­ing in a mo­tor­cade ap­prox­i­mately one minute be­fore he was shot.
