      The casting call was the 15th… Were u there? Thats prob how they will cast for all roles. Atleast 1,000+ people showed up and stood in the 90 degree weather for 3 hrs+… They turned away alot of people cause too many showed up. Alot of the websites say not to submit anything via e-mail but if u were not at the casting call its worth a shot, prob the only way… Hope I was of some help, good luck
