Casting call for ‘King of Roads’ film

Laughing Deva Productions is holding a casting call for roles in its feature travel documentary “King of Roads.”

Auditions will be held Saturday, April 19, from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Columbia Center for the Arts. Interested actors should email Michael Friend at to set up an audition. Include role preference, phone number and photo.

Three actors are needed:

Sam Hill: Looks and attitude are important. Hill was 59 years old in 1916, a man who knew his own importance and had money and power. We are looking for a big man, with a gruff, no-nonsense voice, who projects power.

Sam Lancaster: Lankier than Hill, age 52. Lancaster was a down-to-earth engineer and a man in charge. Born in Mississippi, raised in Tennessee, he learned to walk on his own after contracting polio as a young man.

Host/narrator: no particular gender or age. However, we are looking for this actor to appeal to a young, athletic (bike culture) demographic. Charisma, humor and genuine interest in the project are necessary.

The film will celebrate the Columbia River Highway, the visionaries who made it and it’s status as a destination for family-friendly travel.
