Empire Season 2 Casting Call


To audition for a role on Empire, check out the casting call details below:


DATES: 1/4/15 to 1/14/15
RATE: $80/8

To be considered, you MUST also send in a submission email to extras4empire@gmail.com with the following:

1) Subject Line: Empire Survey Photo 214

2) Name, age, height, weight, phone number, email address and zip code.

3) A recent photo of yourself in a jpeg format. No selfies. No sunglasses or hats. We need to see your face.

If we already contacted you about a booking, you do not need to fill out the survey for this episode.

Are you registered with us? If not, go to our website and follow the instructions to register with our company.

YOU MUST DO THIS BEFORE COMPLETING THE SURVEY. If we do not have your registration, you CAN NOT be considered.

This serves as an availability check – not a booking. If we are able to book you, it will be on the project we chose based on your responses.

There are 3 steps involved in working on the show:

Here’s an explanation of what those steps are!

A few days before each episode shoots, you will receive an availability check for the dates we need you. You will need to respond with your availability for those dates ASAP. Or complete a survey with your availability.

An availability check does NOT mean you are booked!

Once we receive everyone’s availability, we will book people based on the needs of the production for those days.

If you are booked, you will receive a BOOKING EMAIL. It will give you the details of the days you are booked to work. You must respond to your booking or you will be replaced.

If you respond to the AVAILABILITY CHECK or FILL OUT SURVEY, and don’t receive a booking email, it means that you are not needed for that particular episode. We will do our best to get a booking email to you no later than 48 hours of the shoot date.

If production has last minute changes, this can sometimes lead to a cancellation. We will do our best to book you at a later date if this happens.

The day before your booking you will receive your CALL INFO. You can expect this email to arrive some time between 8:00PM and 11:00PM. This is because we do not get the official call times until they are finished filming on that current day. When you receive your CALL INFO email you are REQUIRED to respond. This is how we know you have received the information and that you will be there.
