Casting Call 

Do you like to hang around bars, or at least look like you do? If so, try your luck at an open casting call for My Blueberry Nights, the English-language film debut for Chinese director Wong Kar Wai. The film, scheduled to shoot in Memphis the week of July 16, stars Grammy award-winner Norah Jones as a young woman searching America’s bars and restaurants for the meaning of love.

So where in Memphis will production crews be filming? Yes, you guessed, it: The Arcade Restaurant on South Main and the Blues City Café on Beale. Actors for both shoots could come from the open casting, scheduled July 1st from 1 to 4 p.m. at Berryhills Studio, 1890 Berryhills Road in Cordova. “I need bar-types, people with great character faces and look-alikes for the leads,” says Lisa Lax, who is casting locally for the film. “Just bring a resume and photo.” And who knows? You might end up hanging with an impressive list of cast members, including, in addition to Jones, Jude Law, Ed Harris, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz and Kevin Spacey.
