Open Casting Call Today for 'Home Improvement' Parody

RESEDA, Calif. — An open casting call for director David Lord’s new “Home Improvement” parody is being held today.

The auditions will be held at 18215 Lassen Street, Northridge, Calif. from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Lord said that with the final touches being put on his Adam & Eve “The A Team,” parody, he is ready to go into production on his next homage, this time to the long running television sitcom “Home Improvement” — a childhood favorite of the director.

“I've always loved the show,” Lord said. “Tim Allen has impeccable comic timing. I've tried to capture the essence of the show and really bring fans the best of what they fell in love with, just like I would want to see.”

The script was written by DCypher, who also helped Lord create scripts for “The A Team” parody and the Tiger Woods parody produced late last year.

The new movie features Adam & Eve contract star Alexis Ford as the beloved "Tool Helper Girl," a coveted role. The remaining roles, including Tim, Al, Jill, and wise neighbor Wilson, are yet to be filled.

“We had a really nice turn out with the A Team casting and it definitely helped me flesh out the characters,” Lord said. “It's a great way to meet new talent and see performers who I have shot over the years showcase their acting abilities. I remember last time we did this I was shocked that guys who I thought of as gonzo performers came through with genuine acting chops. You just never know.”
