“The Pillowman” Casting Call for Indie Film

Auditions for Actors and Actresses

Keyser Soze Entertainment, an independent film group, is looking to cast actors for the film, “The Pillowman”. Auditions will be held in Clio, MI by appointment only.


Based on the award winning play of the same name by Martin McDonagh, and with echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm. “The Pillowman” centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and the purpose of art.

Audition Details:

Auditions by appointment from 12/19/12 to 2/28/13

1112 W Wilson Rd
Clio MI, 48420

Available Roles:

  • Katurian: A writer of gruesome short stories often involving children. His disturbed imagination was the result of having heard his brother being abused when they were younger. Consequently he killed his parents and looked after his brother. He is shocked by his arrest. M, 20-40.
  • Tupolski: The lead detective and the “good cop” in the interrogation. Cold and uncaring, he sees himself as detached from the people he aims to save, shocking his younger partner Ariel. M, 30-50.
  • Ariel: A brutal and violent detective who has a vendetta against anyone who commits crimes against children because of abuse in his own past. He ends up being more sympathetic towards Katurian and his stories than Tupolski. M, 25 – 35.
