New Taylor Sheridan series casting TCU fans for big shoot in Fort Worth
A new series from Taylor Sheridan calledLand Man is casting TCU students and alumni as extras for a shoot on campus next month. And considering they'll be dressed up in TCU gear and cheering on a sporting event, it doesn't seem much "acting" will be required.
Legacy Casting posted the casting call on Facebook: "TCU STUDENTS/ALUMNI - Landman needs you for a scene! We are filming a track and field meet on February 15th and would love for REAL students/alumni to be in attendance ... We want you to wear all of your TCU gear for this scene!"
But, TCU Showgirls, you can't just show up in your short shorts.
Those interested must create a free talent profile at www.mycastingfile.com, look for the casting notice for "REAL TCU STUDENTS/ALUMNI," and submit their availability. The profile will ask for information like height, weight, skin tone, piercings, and whether you're willing to remove your piercings (no joke). They'll also want a current head shot and body shot, along with contact information.
Accepted applicants will be notified by email, Legacy says. The company doesn't specify how many people they're seeking, how long the shoot will be on February 15, or what the compensation might be.
The show reportedly is also inviting TCU film, television, and digital media students to shadow the crew during filming.
Land Man is the latest Sheridan series for streamer Paramount+ (release date not yet announced). It stars Billy Bob Thornton, Ali Larter, Jacob Lofland, and Michelle Randolph, and is described on IMDB as "a modern day tale of fortune-seeking in the world of West Texas oil rigs."
Variety adds, "The series is an upstairs/downstairs story of roughnecks and wildcat billionaires fueling a boom so big, it’s reshaping our climate, our economy and our geopolitics.” It is based on the podcast 'Boomtown.'"
Unlike Sheridan's 1883, which was shot in and around Fort Worth in 2021, Land Man is not considered a Yellowstone spinoff.
While most of Land Man will be shot in West Texas this spring, filming scenes around Fort Worth is convenient for Sheridan, who lives on a ranch near Weatherford with his wife, Nicole. He also filmed parts of his series Lawmen: Bass Reeves in North Texas in 2023.
Sheridan is an honorary Fort Worthian who attended Pascal High School. He is the creator of the award-winning series Yellowstone, its prequels 1883 and 1923, and the forthcoming 1944, starring Matthew McConaughey.
