Casting Call: The Hollars

Open Casting Call for

The SAG production stars John Krasinski (The Office), Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect), Richard Jenkins (Six Feet Under) and Margo Martindale (August: Osage County).

The story centers on John Hollar (Krasinski) who leaves NYC to return to his Middle America hometown just before his mother is to have critical surgery. He is reunited with family and old friends. A great story!
