According to an August 30 article on Actress Archives, “Lost” actress Maggie Grace has entered into negotiations to star in James Mangold’s made-in-Massachusetts flick Wichita, alongside the likes of Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. The Hollywood Reporter stated that Grace is slotted to play Diaz’s soon-to-be-married sister. Like the bride-to-be, Wichita will undergo a name change soon; keep an eye out for the project’s new title.
But you don’t need a famous last name to score a role in Wichita; Boston Casting’s e-mail on August 28 stated the following: “We are looking for Mothers to work with their babies as extras on the film Wichita. Job starts shooting Sept. 15th and shoots through to Thanksgiving. We are SPECIFICALLY looking for young moms with children 0-2. If interested, please email photo of mom and baby to [email protected], please be sure to include your contact information.”
Stage moms rejoice.
