CHICAGO – Chicago casting for new “Ride-Along” extras will begin in “a few weeks,” HollywoodChicago.com has confirmed with Chicago casting director Darlene Hunt of ExtraOrdinary Casting. The new FOX TV show, which is a Chicago-filmed cop drama premiering in mid-season 2010 to 2011, stars Jennifer Beals and Jason Clarke.

Hunt tells us she will be casting those who worked in the pilot with her for continuity as well as new faces of all ages. She casts a lot of “real” characters and says more “real” police would be ideal for “Ride-Along”. Children under the age of 16 need to be work permitted. This time around, Hunt is not conducting an in-person casting call. You must mail in your submission. To be considered for “Ride-Along” casting, mail a hard-copy photo to:

ExtraOrdinary Casting
P.O. Box 552
Westmont, IL 60559

You must also download and submit this registration form. Once you are registered with her, you will also be considered for other extra, stand-in and photo-double possibilities on other TV shows, feature films, commercials and print work made available to her company.

ExtraOrdinary Casting has worked on nearly all of the TV shows that have come into Chicago for almost two decades including “Prison Break” (all episodes except for the pilot), “The Beast” (all episodes except for the pilot), “ER” (all episodes filmed in Chicago in the past several years), “Early Edition” and “Turks”. The firm has also cast extras for several feature films (“Public Enemies,” “The Express,” “The Time Traveler’s Wife” and more) and commercials.

Update on Nov. 11, 2010 at 5:10 p.m.: The FOX TV show name “Ride-Along” has been changed to “The Chicago Code”.

Chicago Code

My daughter was originally given the role as Jennifer Beale as a child in episode 8 (flash back) of Chicago Code. She went to the last minute wardrobe fittings for the shoot and arrived at the scheduled time of 6:30am and changed into the clothing she was fitted for filming. Another little girl showed up at 8:15(late) and either the Producer/Director gave my daughters role to her and sent us on our way.

  • Punk Punk

    CHICAGO – For theater that is audaciously in-the-now and generates a sparkle of life, there are few better storefront (garage, gothic gathering place) groups than “Nothing Without a Company.” Their latest, eclectic kick-in-the-head production is the intensely diverting and weirdly fun “Punk Punk.”

  • Assassination Theater

    CHICAGO – There are two dates in modern American History that ring in the heads of certain generations. Of course, there is September 11th, 2001, but the granddaddy of that date is November 22nd, 1963. That is when an American president, John F. Kennedy, was shot point blank in the head and killed on the street of an American city. The official proclamation from the government is that a lone assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, fired those shots. In a new Chicago play, “Assassination Theater,” subtitled “Chicago’s Role in the Crime of the Century,” the jury is still decidedly out.
