BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Local casting director Frank Rossi announced locals are needed for extra and featured extra roles in the Hollywood independent feature film 'CABRINI'.

The movie is set in in Five Points New York City circa 1889 and men, women and children that closely resemble residents and immigrants of Italy from that time period are needed. The adults needed are in the age range of 18-75 and children in the age range of 8-15.

All roles are paid and Rossi says there are many extra roles for those of other backgrounds as well. No prior experience is needed.

All casting will be done via email and website submission. Those interested should should submit their picture and contact information and age, if less than 18 years old, to or via the following website

CABRINI is described in a press release as:

CABRINI tells the taut, timely story of a pioneering social activist who championed the empowerment of women and the rights of immigrants – at a time when women were second-class citizens, and the immigrants she served were considered barely human.

Along the way, she proved herself to be among the greatest entrepreneurs of the 19th Century – a woman who began with nothing and created the largest charitable empire the world had ever known… truly an empire of hope.

CABRINI charts the rise of an audacious and remarkable woman who overcame the sexism and virulent anti-Italian bigotry of 19th Century New York to transform the lives of countless human beings worldwide.”
