Casting Call: Disney Seeking Kids 9-12 For “That’s So Raven” Spin-off.

Disney Channel and “That’s So Raven” star Raven-Symone are working on a spin- off to the popular show, which aired between 2003 and 2007. Disney Channel casting is searching nationwide for talented kids between the ages of 9 and 12 to submit videos in hopes of landing a role on the upcoming “That’s So Raven” Spin-off.

Interested kids need to download their script provided and create a short video of themselves performing the lines given and upload it through Disney’s Applause App. Get the Applause App here.

Sources say that Raven-Symone will reprise her role as Raven Baxter as well as executive produce the show.

The original “That’s So Raven” show focused on a teenage Raven who was blessed (or cursed) with the ability to see the future. No matter how hard she tried to fix things before they could go awry, she failed in the most comedic ways. The script often called for Raven-Symone to don hilarious costumes. In the new unnamed pilot, Raven-Symone is now raising her own pre-teen with psychic abilities.

Spotlight On Talent: Nafrini

Nafrini is a Conscious Hip Hop artist hailing from the Midwest, on a mission to bring back authentic storytelling and substance to the art form of Hip Hop. In the spring of 2015 she released ‘All Day (Promo)’, a freestyle over Kanye West’s track of the same name where she addressed the braggadocio nature of rap music. She followed that up in the winter of 2015 with her first official single ‘In My Hands’—a laid back hip hop record detailing the obstacles of her spiritual journey followed by the release of the ‘In My Hands’ music video in the spring of 2016.

Nafrini 1

Nafrini 1


In the Fall of 2016 she released her second single ‘Lovin’ Him (That Was That Bullshit)’ detailing a past relationship that ended in regret. 2017 promises the next chapter in that tale with new music & visuals, live performances and as always, a focus on telling true-to-life stories.

Nafrini

Nafrini

Sapphire: You’re  extremely multi talented, model, musician, actress, is there any talent you wish you had but don’t? If you had to pick one of you talents to focus on for the next 5 years, which would it be?
Nafrini: Thank you. I really wish I knew how to play the guitar. It’s my favorite instrument next to the drums to hear on a track, but I cannot play lol. If I had to pick 1 talent to focus on for the next 5 years it would be music hands down! It’s one of my first loves next to writing and now that things are moving in that area I’d prefer to put more energy that way.


Sapphire: Your  music,  while giving the hip hop crowd what it wants, also manages to tell deep stories of love, growth, pain, and betrayal. Where  do you come up with the inspiration for your songs? Which of your  current songs do you  enjoy performing most in front of a live audience?

Nafrini: My lyrics stem from personal life experiences mainly. I come up with concepts before I hear the beat as what I want to speak about at that time determines the type of beat I search for. I enjoy performing ‘Do You Love Yourself’ which will be released officially very soon! I’ve been performing that live and it gets a great response each time. I enjoy it mainly as it speaks on the vanity of humans and how that can take ones life down the wrong path to where they eventually get lost in all of the illusions of life.

Sapphire: Why  do you  bill yourself as a “conscious” hip hop artist? What  makes your music  different  from  the norm?

Nafrini: I’m young but I grew up with an older brother who always played pure Hip Hop in the house from Too Short to Pac and some Do or Die out of Chicago so I grew up listening to pure storytellers. I think that’s an element that is missing in today’s music. It’s been resurrected with J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar, two of my favorites by the way. I’m not the kind of artist who will do a bunch of songs about how good her sex is, how dope her body is etc. I naturally tell life stories when I write. While I don’t knock any other artist who’s about pure entertainment as there’s a place for that I am here to keep the storytelling going how Tupac and those before used to do with their music.

Sapphire: Your  portfolio on Model Mayhem is stunning. Each photo more mesmerizing. I see you’ve been modeling  for 11 years, what  got you started in the modeling industry and how hard was it to find your niche?


Nafrini: Thank you for the compliment. I actually began modeling by mistake believe it or not. I’m a short girl standing 5’0 and very curvy so I never saw myself as model material. I was actually searching for a photographer to take some actor headshots for me as I was doing local theater and some short films locally and he put me on to sites like Model Mayhem and I took the photos from that shoot and opened a portfolio account to mainly network with other actors, casting directors on there. I began to get approached by photographers who loved my look and began to do photoshoot that way and it just led to more and more shoots as well as other acting projects. I knew right away that I would not qualify for top casting agencies due to my height and then I learned about different avenues of modeling and I love being sexy so I began to do more lingerie, implied nudes to full on nude work. Glamour pays good and fits perfectly for me. I view myself as a vixen, sex kitten with a Goddess flare so I ran with it.
Sapphire: What can you tell us  about “Blood of Bad Men”? You look  kinda  mean with a  gun in your hand, will this  be your  first movie?
Nafrini: Blood of Bad Men just wrapped in 2016 and is currently in post production. It’s about a group of ladies who are pretty much call girls with a Madame lol, and they get wrapped up in some petty crime outside of pleasing customers that leads to some messy blood shed. Anyone who knows me knows I’m slightly obsessed with Pam Grier as she represents strength and sex appeal with you look at her catalog of work so I love portraying that image as well. This will be my second film to make the cut and be released as the first is called ‘Petty Cash: The Movie’ and that was several years ago. I’ve done a few other projects but they have not seen the light of day. 

Sapphire: I see we share a hobby, I’ve noticed you keep a book nearby. I’m an avid reader as well. What are your  favorite genres? What book can you read over and over?
Nafrini: Nice! Yes, I am a bookworm for sure and have been one since I was a little girl with my first set of books being Dr. Suess ordered by my mom lol. I LOVE fiction novels though I’ve been more into non-fiction, self help books. I have been dying to reread the Little Black Girl Lost series by Keith Lee Johnson. I made it to the third book and saw there are more so I need to start over and catch up lol. The story of Johnnie Wise was compelling for me when I first started reading that series.

Sapphire: I know hearts are going to break here but you’re happily in love. Is it hard being a nude model and entertainer and having a stable relationship? Is you boo supportive of your career?

Nafrini: You know I’ve definitely experienced in a past relationship that not every man can handle his woman being seen by so many men in the nude. It’s really a security issue because these also tend to be the same men who follow you so they know your work and like your pictures but will tell you they don’t date “those kind of women” so in the past I compromised who I am which is a fucking nudist hippie LOL. I’m comfortable in my skin and love showing off my sex appeal but when I tried playing the conservative role I became miserable as I realized that isn’t me and any man who steps to me has to roll with me or keep it moving. I have seen with my partner that not every man has an issue with it! Hell, if porn stars can have full on husbands and children why can’t a chick who just likes to be nude have the same, right? I feel no pressure now as I can be myself and that’s the dopest feeling as his only concern is being committed to him which is NO issue for me! I’m traditional in a lot of ways believe it or not.

Sapphire: Your body is  sick, I see you be up in Planet Fitness. Do you have a strict work out regimen? Do you diet?
Nafrini: Well thank you. I aim to hit the gym 3-4 times a week to maintain and sculpt my physique and honestly nutrition wasn’t my thing before as I’m such a foodie! Yet now I’ve realized how that plays a huge part in fitness so I aim to have a cleaner diet with more fruits, vegetables and natural products. I no longer eat fried foods except for on a cheat day. 

Sapphire: You’ve shot in some beautiful locations. If you had to pick a top two  locations, which would you say you enjoyed the most?

Nafrini: Definitely West Hollywood is now a favorite and I love Chicago as there are so many dope places to shoot outdoors when the weather is beautiful.

Sapphire: How  can people keep up with your music, modeling and acting work. Drop those links girl.
Nafrini: People can follow me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/NatashaNafrini and like my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TheNafrini as well as Twitter www.twitter.com/NatashaNafrini to keep up with my projects as I post and network often.

Casting Call: Child Actor For Lead Role In Steven Spielberg Film “The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara”

Steven Spielberg’s adaptation  of the Pulitzer Prize winning  novel, “The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara” is now in  pre-production. The story revolves a young Jewish boy, secretly baptized by a Catholic maid who subsequently was taken from his Jewish home to be raised as a Catholic.

Spielberg is looking to  cast a  boy between the ages of  6-9 who looks Jewish Italian. An Italian accent is not required for the role. The movie will be  filmed on location in Bologna and other parts of Italy and  is scheduled to be released at the end f 2017.

kidnapping-of-edgaro-mortara-movie

The following information  was  released by the Maryland Film  Organization  regarding the  film.

Steven Spielberg film “THE KIDNAPPING OF EDGARDO MORTARA”

EDGARDO — BOY age 6-9 to play 6 years old. This is a unique and very challenging part for a truly special boy. The story deals with the complexity of an extremely intelligent and gifted child’s situation – his desire to return to his family and the faith of his ancestors, pitted against his ability to learn the Catechism and engage with the Pope on a level far beyond his years. HE SHOULD APPEAR TO BE A JEWISH ITALIAN child. We are not looking for any kind of Italian accent. LEAD.

STORY LINE — Steven Spielberg is making a film about the true story of EDGARDO MORTARA – a 6 year old Jewish boy from Bologna who was reported to have been secretly baptized by a maid, and was deemed by the Catholic church therefore to be Christian. Pope Pius IX (to be played by Mark Rylance) decreed that the boy could not remain with his Jewish family. He was seized by the Papal State and taken to the Vatican where his indoctrination into Catholicism began. This was a cause célèbre of mid-nineteenth century European politics and the domestic and international outrage against the pontifical state’s actions may have contributed to its downfall amid the unification of Italy. This is an incredible story of real historical relevance.

To submit: Email delisicreative@gmail.com.
Subject line: EDGARDO SUBMISSION / Name of boy, your agency, city/state.
Body of email: Your agency contact info, boys name/age/d.o.b, city/state of residence, along w/current non retouched photos.

If you want to include a brief introduction, bio or resume, please do! Edgar needs to be highly intelligent…. please note any related, special, or fun facts so we get to know him! –
