There is a spectacular new opportunity to appear in a national sports drink commercial! Four-time NBA All Star Paul George is starring in the upcoming Gatorade spot and there is a casting call being held for it! Commercial auditions are looking for actors or athletes to play basketball players and a coach to be in the national commercial. Casting directors are looking for an African American or Caucasian male who is 6’1 or taller.
This role calls for a man with an athletic build to play a coach. In addition, males who are 6’1 and taller are being hired to portray NBA players. You do not need to have basketball skills to be considered. The taller you are the better! Guys who want to be considered to portray NBA players should be between the ages of 18 and 25 years old. In-person auditions are not being held because the team will choose talent from photos. Filming is set to take place on January 24th. Because the project will shoot in Oklahoma City, anyone who applies should be local. If you want the chance to appear in a national commercial, review the 2018 commercial casting call below!
