This Toronto Casting Call Will Pay You $4K & Fly You To Milan For A Cookie Commercial

Are you a fan of Italy, Belgium and eating cookies? Do you already have some acting experience under your belt? If so, this Toronto casting call may be the perfect summer gig for you.

Mann Casting is accepting self-tape submissions for three roles for their new commercial labelled "Project Cookie" until 4 p.m. on Friday, July 16.

The four-day shoot in Milan and Brussels would call for actors to arrive in Milan on July 30 or 31 and spend about two weeks in Europe.

The casting agency is looking for a white man in his 50s or 60s. But if you're blond, no dice. They're also looking for a Southeast Asian man and woman both in their 30s.

All three roles call for fluent "American English," and the two male roles must have a valid motorcycle license. For the female role, a motorcycle license is a happy bonus but not required.

This non-union gig pays up to $4,000 Canadian with shoot days coming in at $500 and rest and travel days at $250 with $50 per diems and other perks.

The logistics of the gig call for multiple COVID-19 tests and a valid passport. The casting company also told Narcity that they're looking for applicants with serious acting chops who will understand the nuances of each role.
