Tim McGraw Holds Casting Call
Tim McGraw needs new co-stars! The singer is looking for fans to appear in his movie, 'Love Don't Let Me Down,' which is currently being filmed in Nashville. Producers are seeking 2,000 to 2,500 people for a scene that is being shot on Feb. 2 in downtown Music City.
'Love Don't Let Me Down' stars Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow as a country singer who has fallen from grace. Tim plays her husband and manager. 'Gossip Girl' actress Leighton Meester plays a beauty queen turned singer, while Tim's 'Friday Night Lights' co-star Garret Hedlund portrays a young singer seeking stardom ... and falls for Gwyneth's character along the way. The plot thickens as Tim's character tries to put his wife's career back on track, as they head out on what he hopes is her resurrection tour.
The scene for which they're casting next week is a concert, and the movie's producers say it is a very important scene to the movie. Those wanting to participate in the shoot for the concert scene must be at least 18 years old. They'll be admitted on a first come, first serve basis, to Nashville's Municipal Auditorium on Feb. 2., starting at 4:00 PM CST.
Although Tim won't sing, he will be on hand to greet the fans who come out. The Lost Trailers will perform for all of the aspiring movie extras. Leighton Meester and Garret Hedlund will also sing, to pre-recorded tracks. Soles4Souls, a Nashville-based charity that donates new and gently worn shoes to adults and children in need, will collect shoes at Municipal Auditorium to distribute in Haiti.
'Love Don't Let Me Down' is the first major movie to film in the Nashville area since 'Billy: The Early Years' and 'Hannah Montana: The Movie.' A release date for the flick has not yet been released.
