(Garfield Heights) - Ready to strap on the pads?

Crews from the movie “Draft Day” will be casting football players for scenes that will be filmed in Cleveland or Columbus.

Real Style, a leading casting and talent resource, is looking for football players ages 18 to 25-years-old and all ethnicities. The casting call/try outs are for those who have played college football only.

If hired, players must be available to rehearse on May 16, 17 and shoot May 18 in Cleveland (or possibly Columbus).

Extras are used throughout filming to provide authenticity to scenes and to reinforce the creative vision of the director. Extras are paid for their work on set.

The auditions are Saturday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Garfield Heights High School Football Field.
