Central Casting is looking to cast people that can portray Japanese hipsters for the HBO show “How To Make It In America” from the producers of “Entourage”. This is a speaking role so you must have knowledge of the Japanese language and be able to have a Japanese accent speaking english. Age range is 20’s to 30’s with a hipster or lower east side look. The shoot date would be either Friday 11/20 or Monday 11/23. When submitting please include a picture and the best contact number.

Just what, pray tell, is the “Lower East Side look”?
