New Mark Wahlberg film casting Boston’s ‘character men with tough faces’


If you’re the kind of guy with a so-called “tough face,” maybe life hasn’t been as kind to you as it has been the Timothée Chalamet’s or the James Franco’s of the world. Luckily for those rocking the
visage dur, the new Mark Wahlberg film has announced an open call for “real people — character men with tough faces.”

We think the film in question is the Peter Berg-directed Wonderland, of which Wahlberg serves as star and producer. The film is currently in pre-production and is described as: “An ex-felon named Spenser returns to Boston’s criminal underworld to unravel a twisted murder conspiracy.”

This all seems to make sense when reading through Boston Casting’s description of the call, which takes place at their Allston location this Saturday (August 4).


Boston Casting is seeking the following:
— Construction Workers
— Blue Collar Workers
— DPW Workers
— Fishermen
— Mob Guys, etc.

“Mob Guys, etc.” sounds like a new store opening in a West Warwick strip mall. Peep the flyer below for added details, and heads up: Those unable to attend the casting session in person are asked to send a photo and contact information to bostoncastingsubmit@gmail.com.

Timothée Chalamet need not apply.
