HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Co-producers Adam & Eve Pictures and X-Play are casting for their XXX parody of the CBS TV series "The Beverly Hillbillies" beginning June 27.
The roles of Ellie Mae, Jed Clampett, Jethro, Granny, Mr. Drysdale and Miss Jane along with four side roles for additional females are up for grabs.
Interested actors and agents are encouraged to contact co-producer Scott David and director Will Ryder to set up a go-see and reading.
Candidates must be able to resemble their characters, possess excellent acting ability and be familiar with episodes of the original TV series which ran from 1962 until 1971. Females interested in the four side roles must be sexy and have “boobs.”
“There are a number of episodes on YouTube so actors can check it out and learn their characters before coming in to read,” David said.
Ryder added, “We've acquired a 1926 Model A truck that looks just like the one in the TV show so I know this movie is going to be great. Plus we’re happy to be making this with Adam & Eve Pictures where we won two best comedy awards previously for ‘Flight Attendants’ and ‘Not Bewitched XXX.’”
The producers will also be searching Hollywood to find a mainstream actress to play the role of Granny much like they did during casting of ‘Not the Cosbys XXX’ when Thomas Ward won the Cliff Huxtable role.
That movie went on to win awards for best parody and Ward for best non-sex performance.
“Some characters like Granny are just hard to find from a youngish porn pool but I think we can find most of the other characters and of course all the beautiful girls will come from porn valley,” Ryder said.
Open casting will take place on June 27 from 1-4 p.m. at the company’s West Hollywood office. There will also be auditions on June 28 or 29 from 1-4 p.m.
