Casting Call for feature film "Lifted" to be shot in Birmingham, AL

The Academy Award nominated Director, Lexi Alexander, is teaming again with Birmingham's Alan and Hugh Hunter for the feature film "Lifted". They will be among the first to take advantage of newly approved tax incentives for filmmakers in Alabama.

Alexander and Hunter Films last collaborated on the film "Johnny Flynton", which earned an Oscar nomination in 2003. "Lifted" tells the story of a young Alabama boy who shares his father's passion for R&B music. Just before he is to sing in a contest in Birmingham, his father is called up for a tour in Afghanistan. Father manages to reunite with son in time for his big performance.

"Lifted" goes into production at the end of next month in the Birmingham, Alabama area. Casting for principal actors and background extras will take place over the next several weeks.

Open Auditions for 20th Century Fox's The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special in 3D on Ice

Do you sound exactly like Homer when you say “D’oh!”? Do you look like Sideshow Bob? Do people say you remind them of Moe the Bartender, Krusty the Clown or even the sinister Mr. Burns? If you are a Simpsons super-fan, or look or sound like anyone in Springfield, then this is your chance for an opportunity to appear in "The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special in 3D on Ice" airing in January 2010 on FOX!

Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (of Super Size Me and 30 Days fame) has been tapped by 20th Century Fox to document the rise and continued fame of America’s favorite family, The Simpsons. The special will look at all the cultural impact The Simpsons has had during its two-decade run on television. Spurlock, in collaboration with The Simpsons, will be searching for the “real deal” on July 25 in San Diego, CA.

Be ready to do your best impression! Costumes are welcome, but not mandatory.
