It’s 1962.  A hot August night lies heavy over the small town of Argo, Alabama.  A dead white man is discovered and the local police arrest a black stranger named Virgil Tibbs.  The police discover that their prime suspect is, in fact, a homicide detective from California.  As it happens, Tibbs becomes the racially tense community’s single hope in solving a brutal murder that is turning up no witnesses, no motives and no clues.

Open casting call for the following:

Looking for 8 men (18-70) and 2 women (18-30) to play multiple characters of different ages.

Needed:  1 black actor, 25-40, to play Virgil Tibbs
