The producers of an independent film about the 1939 Iowa Hawkeyes football season and Heisman Trophy-winning player Nile Kinnick are looking for an actor and an actress to fill the roles of two notable University of Iowa figures.
Casting crew are hoping to fill featured roles of famous Iowa artist Grant Wood and Elizabeth Catlett, an artist who was one of Wood's students and one of three people to receive the first masters of fine arts degree at Iowa and the first African-American woman to do it.
Wood was 48-years-old in 1939, and Catlett was 24.
Interested actors and actresses should be prepared to do a short, taped reading. Other roles will not be filled at this event, but people may bring resumes and headshots for future consideration.
"The Ironmen" is set to film in Iowa City during late 2019 into 2020.
