Donald Glover made history at the 2017 Emmys when he took home the awards for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Best Directing for a Comedy Series. Now its time to get the ball back rolling for his hit series that he’s receiving all the accolades for.
Atlanta Magazine reports that they’ve spotted a film crew around the city and a casting website appeared, requesting for very specific extras to appear on season 2 of Atlanta. Some of these include “tan caucasians to portray Floridians,” “trashy white characters,” and a sketchy “caucasian mom” who “is cheering on someone getting beat up.” They’re also looking for specific cars , fast food workers, people with “high-end business attire” and a couple of people to play assistants.
Glover is tight-lipped in regards to all other details of the second season of Atlanta. He told The Hollywood Reporter, that he wanted to interest a larger audience with the controversial storyline.
I don’t want to go into season 2 [with the mindset of], ‘Enough people liked it so just keep those people’. Because then you begin to give your audience a methadone drip of bullshit that keeps them happy as opposed to, ‘We did something controversial and more people were interested.’
