How do I submit?

Send an e-mail to with the subject line of the role you’re submitting for.

Include current, clear photos – one from the chest up (face) and one from the knees up. You should look the part of the role you’re submitting for, and non-smiling photos are best. Don’t send selfies that show only your head or are from strange angles. If you have professional photos, you’ll also need to send non-professional pictures.

List your first and last name, phone number(s), city and state where you live, email address, age, ethnicity, height and weight. Also include your sizes (men: jacket, collar, sleeve, waist, inseam and shoe; women: dress size, bust/bra/cup, waist, pants and shoe).

If you have acting experience, attach a resume or briefly list your experience. List your bartender or server experience if you’re applying for one of these roles. 

Finally, include whichever is applicable: “NEW FACE,” “REPEAT but never used on camera” or “REPEAT local type.”
