Waiting in line for Sex and the City

It’s the stuff of Jimmy Choo dreams and Cosmopolitan wishes … Thousands of wannabe Carries, Samanthas, Charlottes and Mirandas lined up in Manhattan Tuesday morning, waiting to audition for an extra role in the next Sex and the City movie.

Sex and the City 2 Casting

Casting directors were searching for fashion models, “celebrity types,” upscale socialites, urban club goers, gays and lesbians, and “international types” to be placed in several different scenes in the movie. Sounds like they’re planning some sensational scenes for the sequel – catwalks and clubs and celebs – oh, my!

As I made my way through the sea of strappy stilettos and designer handbags, I couldn’t believe how happy these hopefuls were. No complaining about balancing in 5-inch-heels for hours on end (with nary a chair in sight). No whining about the steamy 90-degree-day ahead of them. No grumbling that the open call offered little more than a chance at glorified background work.

In fact, after hours of waiting in line, the auditioners didn’t even get to read lines or act out scenes. They simply had their photos snapped and that was that. A representative from Grant Wilfley Casting told me that about 5,000 people auditioned in total. And rumor has it roughly 1,000 more were turned away.

But this didn’t seem to put a damper on anyone’s spirit. They were this close to being part of the legend that is Sex and the City. And they couldn’t stop grinning.

    Great article! The audition was tons of fun and definitely an eye opener as far as how “cattle call” auditions go. Waiting in line was worth it :)
