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.
