Casting call: Can you act in a scene with Kevin Hart without laughing?

Kevin Hart and Will Packer are teaming up again for another hilarious comedy, and a new casting call offers a very big challenge: they need folks able to work a scene with Hart without laughing.

The movie is "Night School," filming now in Atlanta. Packer and Hart have worked together on numerous projects including the two Atlanta-filmed "Ride Along" movies (No. 3 reportedly is on the horizon). Packer's latest movie, "Girls Trip," has crossed the $100 million threshold. Hart makes a tiny and very self-deprecating cameo.

They folks need the following looks: Hispanic guys 24 and older with facial hair and Asian, white, Hispanic and Indian women ages 22-35 who are OK wearing crop tops, spandex pants and cut-up jeans.

The first scene films Sept. 19, the second is Sept. 25-26 and the pay for each day is $68 for eight hours.

Email with photos of yourself and the following subject lines, depending on what you're submitting for: "Hispanic male 9/19, Latino Male 9/19, Puerto Rican 9/19" or "Asian beauty, Caucasian beauty, Hispanic beauty or Indian beauty."

Note: women should send photos of themselves in crop tops and the photos should be simple cell phone pictures, rather than professional head shots.

Remember: you need to be able to keep a straight face!
