The Last Airbender Open Casting Call: Extras Needed (Philadelphia, PA)

I have received a casting call for The Last Airbender from the production staff of the film.  They’re looking for soldiers, martial artists, dancers, gymnasts, athletes and families to work as extras.  Physically fit Men and Women from 18-65 years of age, and Boys and Girls aged 6-15.  All ethnicities are welcome.  No experience is necessary. Martial arts or military training is a plus.

They are only casting local to Philadelphia, PA.  If anyone lives within 1 hour of Philadelphia, they should attempt to contact the casting office and attend the open call.

Night Shyamalan, is set in a world where human civilization is divided into four nations: Air, Water, Earth, and Fire. The film’s hero, the reluctant young Aang, is the “Last Airbender”. Aided by a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara and her bull-headed brother Sokka, Aang proceeds on a perilous journey to restore balance to their war-torn world.

    i love the show.
    my family loves the show.
    im a national champion gymnast.
    im a national champion dancer….
    i live in texas.. GRR

  2. Im there. I look like a firebender … only a red headed one. And I can do flip shit! HOO_HA!!!!!

  3. I don't understand how those individuals who believe “race is not an issue” can continue to make that claim. If the director has intentionally implied that ethnic minorities are being sought for roles in which the main Avatar cast inhabit and interact and from which the main characters will derive their lineage, how can they justify NOT casting the main characters as ethnic?

    If M. Night would prefer to have all the Water Tribe extras be of an ethnic background, then it must stand that Katara and Sokka should also be of a similar ethnic background. The same for Zuko, Toph, etc, if the director wants the Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom extras to be of a general ethnic type.

  4. I've learned that Jesse McCartney is being cast as Prince Zuko. Is he out of his mind? Jesse McCartney as an angsty, complex character like Zuko? YOu've got to be kidding me.

  5. I hate it! I live in Philly, 12, Filipino, have martial arts experience, and love the show! Too bad i can't drive myself there…. I don't thiink my parents would like me to do this cuz we're busy in April-May! :crying:

I’m a very fan of avatar and i practice some scenes where toph is. I’m a blue belt in taekwondo, I’m a skilled dancer and a talented performer. now I’m in 3rd year in BS. in Criminology and it wasn’t hard for me to do some martial arts and military stuff because its part of my course. I’m 20 but believe me. i stood 5’2 so people mistaken me for a 15 years old. if you want to see my pictures you cant look for it at [email protected]. thats my account for facebook and friendster. if you would give me a chance. i would be honored. thank you so much.
