The Casting Call

Movie auditions bring individuals from Indianapolis, Kentucky

Lights. Camera. Action.

Russian accent.


Right look for camera.


Acting on point.


Twenty-five actors from all over Indiana to Kentucky arrived to Logansport recently to audition for a spot in a spy thriller movie, “Plausible Deniability,” that will be filmed in Logansport during a two-week period in late August.

Each actor was brought in one-by-one to part of the MagicHouse Productions movie set on Erie Avenue. The set consisted of a hotel room with lime green walls, a striped couch, TV, wall hangings and green curtains.

The room was offset with bright lights, a video camera filming the actors’ every move, and several behind-the-scenes individuals — director Mark Racop; assistant casting director, Sandra Shoemaker; first assistant director, Michael Williams; second assistant director, Andrew Ulrich; cameraman, Dan Gadberry; director of photography, Greg Fauvergue; assistant Chris Allen; and soundman, Chuck Budreau.

Lola Stone drove from Louisville, Ky., to audition for Katya, the lead female role.

The role requires a Russian accent. Most of the roles in the upcoming film require Russian accents. The story follows Alex, a computer techno nerd that is suddenly forced to become a field agent after his friend and mentor is killed. Alex faces danger at every turn while trying to track down a bio-terrorist that wants to kill hundreds of thousands with nerve gas. Thankfully, an ex-agent named Katya helps Alex through his trials and tribulations.

“Can you perfect your Russian?” Racop asked Stone after she read through Katya’s part. “You have the Southern accent down.”

After Lola read through the script again, Racop had made a decision.

“Probably not a Russian for you, but probably one of the other characters,” he said.

Stone, who hosts a Louisville talk show, didn’t go home empty-handed, though.
