Are you a hockey fan or player in need of a cool story to tell people at parties? Then today is your lucky day. Our friends at Carlyn Davis Casting are looking for just your type for two upcoming commercial shoots.

Here are the deets:

Shoot #1

Hockey players, skaters and a goalie. Caucasian males between 20 and 35 years old.

Referee. Caucasian male between 35 and 45 years old.

You’re gonna have to be between 5’8″ and 5’11” and fit skate sizes around 10, 11, and 12. You must have excellent skating skills and hockey experience. You will be playing hockey players from the 1930’s, so a slender build is preferred.

Two slender males and one heavy (XL-2XL) male. Caucasian, between 5’8″ and 5’1″, 25 to 45 years old.  You will be on the ice without skates, so you’ll need excellent balance and must be comfortable playing/running/sliding around without skates.

This is for a commercial shoot in Maryland (Baltimore, mayhaps?) one day between November 16th and 18th.

More after the jump!
