The Big Short Starring Ryan Gosling

In the grand recent tradition of such ripped from reality hit films as The Social Network, Captain Phillips and The Wolf of Wall Street comes The Big Short and a host of fantastic auditions for actors of all ages as well. This gripping true story effected countless people around the globe and now the story will be told on the big screen with a big, all-star cast.

The Big Short will be based on the non-fiction best seller by author Michael Lewis whose novel chronicling the behind the scenes drama during the construction of a major league baseball team was adapted into the 6-time Academy Award nominated Moneyball. In this film the focus will be on the causes and effects of the global economic meltdown of the late 2000’s and a group of men that somehow made millions of dollars amidst the ruin.

The cast of The Big Short will feature Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling (Drive, Lars and the Real Girl, The Ides of March) alongside a trio of superstar Academy Award nominees and winners – Brad Pitt (Fight Club, World War Z, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), Christian Bale

(Batman Begins, 3:10 to Yuma, American Hustle) and Steve Carell (Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, Despicable Me, The Office) making up one of the most truly incredible casts of the year. Leading this formidable foursome will be the equally gifted writer/director Adam McKay whose sterling filmography includes such worldwide hits as The Other Guys, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Step Brothers.

Auditions for The Big Short will be taking place very soon for supporting, day player, extras and stand-in roles.

  1. This movie sounds as it has many layers of substance and truth. As someone who lived through the financial crisis of 2003 and 08. I can relate to someone whose world was forever affected, because of these unanticipated times.
    I have a lot of areas to draw upon. Loss, alcoholism, lifestyle reversal. My ownership as well as the economies contribution, all make up for a depth of material from which I can pull from.
    5’9, 160, slim/ athletic, 52. I wouldn’t enjoy being a part of this opportunity.

  2. Hello, I'm Justin Elias and I am 12 years old. Very young I know, but I am very interested in acting. I have permission to pursue acting but not very open to travel. Also, will acne be a problem for a roll?

  3. I would love to have the oppertunity to be in this movie im hopeing one day to have such a wonderful opportunity. I have blond hair blue green eyes fair skin

  4. I'm a ginger, green eyes, full of personality and have lived a lot of life for a 26 year old. I can sorta carry a tune, I like to garden, and tell stories. Traveled all over the U.S. I can act like a lady when I need to and work harder than a man if I have to. I'm not above being human and I haven't forgot where I came from. Tell me a time and a place and I'll be there if my ole dodge diesel will make it. Heck I'll even paint my nails, and bring fresh veggies unless your like me and want fresh pie too.
    That'll do.


  5. I have a hunger and passion like no other to become a young actress. I'm 19 years old, 5'9, hazel eyes, and light-brown hair that has shimmers of auburn, fair skin (been told numerous times that I have a great complexion). I've also been told I have a beautiful singing voice. My personality consists of positivity and a strive for success. I'm a bit chubby, but I've been on a weight loss journey and am losing progressively. I plan on being to my goal weight in no more than 3 months.

  6. I'm 17 and 5'4 and I think it's a great story! Proving that it depends on your outlook on things. It would be great to work with these talented actors but even greater to be apart of the story. I wouldn't have any complaints if I was casted. This would be a great opportunity.

  7. I would love to be in this movie working with such great actors and director. I want to try to expand my roles as I have only been in movies as an extra. It is my dream to be in more movies. Just being able to watch, and learning from all this talent would be an incredible. Casting me would be a true addition to your movie. I am 56, but look much younger.

  8. I think this is a great movie idea. I would love to be a part of this as an actress for any roll I may be able to fill. I am African American, 23 yrs old, and 5'3 in height. Very versatile. I look forward to working with you.

    Height: 5ft,31/2in
    Weight: 117 lbs
    Blue eyes, strawberry blonde hair. Moore, Oklahoma.interested in being an extra for this movie.

  10. To start an acting career is more challenging than trying to get a child you are babysitting to eat that last piece of broccoli. Being able to have an opportunity to audition will be even greater acting than when I eat a piece of my grandmother's casserole.

  11. Starting my career. Would love to be a part of this film, even as an extra. I enjoy educational movies, whether they be fiction/nonfiction. Even as an extra, I would love to play a part.

  12. To whom it may concern,
