Agency now casting actors, extras, stand-ins for HBO’s True Detective

The third season of HBO’s True Detective is set to begin filming soon in Fayetteville, and a casting agency is looking for locals to appear in the show.

Little Rock-based The Agency Inc. this week issued a call for actors, background actors, stand-ins, and photo doubles for the series.

According to the casting call, “all ages, ethnicities, and genders will be needed with an emphasis on an authentic rural look.” The casting application also asks for individuals with working vehicle from the 1970s-90s, and for people with experience with “welding, machinist, forklift, tractor-trailers, and river dredging.”

Shooting for the series will begin in February, and will continue through the end of June.

True Detective was created by Nic Pizzolatto, who received his MFA at the University of Arkansas, in 2014. He is reportedly the sole writer of every episode of the upcoming third season except for episode four, which he co-wrote with David Milch (Deadwood).

So far, actors Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Scoot McNairy and Stephen Dorff have been announced as part of the cast for the upcoming season.
