Big Thunder Mountain – ABC Pilot Castings

ABC Pilot Casting

ABC Pilot Casting

Saddle up Disneyland fans because ABC has picked up a new television pilot based on the popular ride Big Thunder Mountain. Located at Disney parks in California, Florida, Paris and Toyko the iconic runaway train coaster will serve as inspiration to writers Chris Morgan ( Fast and the Furious) and Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift). We have learned that the casting directors are now taking applications for male and female actors of all ages to play several roles in the exciting new ABC pilot. This is your opportunity to work with not only ABC but Disney as well. Do not miss out on your chance and apply now.

The ride takes guests into an abandoned mining town set in the American southwest of the Gold Rush. As with many Disney attractions, a disaster happens on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad that throws the ride into the chaos characterizing a runway train coaster. Depending on the version, the train and its passengers encounter earthquakes, flash flood or a tsunami – not to mention the oddball details along the way. Not much is known about the plot of Big Thunder Mountain is known but with the huge success that Disney had with  turning the Pirates of the Caribbean ride into an ongoing movie series we are sure that the show will be a hit.

Castings directors at ABC and Disney are now taking applications for both union and non union actors for several supporting and extra roles for Big Thunder Mountain so do not miss out your once in a lifetime chance. If you are interested in auditioning for the pilot send a recent photo along with a resume. Please keep checking back for more information on casting dates and times and as always leave us a comment and let us know what you think about Disney and ABC joining forces to produce a hit television show.

  3. My name is Carlos Valcarcel and I’m 18 years old. I’m originally from Santiago, chile but I’m staying at surprise, AZ. I came all the way to the US to find what I need, because Chile at the acting business is not the best, and this part will be such an amazing opportunity to finally accomplish what I wanted since day 1! I love roller coaster, I went to Disneyland and it just blew my mind. I’m very focus in work, I always do my best not to impress, I do it because I like it and I like the way it feels. I speak perfect English, high scores in my old school and ready to be at the top and just show that I have the talent and I have what it takes to be the best and be working non stop because, after all, is what I always wanted and I’ll get it. Thanks!

  4. Ever since I was a little girl, I have always wished to be a part of the Disneyland magic. I want to help bring smiles to a young child’s face. Creating unforgettable memories and experiences with families, ones that they will never forget. Disneyland is a place where hopes and dreams come to life and folks come together. My dream job lies within the Walt Disney Company. I want to be apart of this company, this creation, this wonder! I bringing other people’s imagination to life, now that’s quite the opportunity. “I am interested in entertaining people, in bringing pleasure, particularly laughter, to others” -Walt Disney. Much like Walt Disney, I want to entertain people. I want to bring them pleasure and hear family’s laughter together. This is my dream. Think of how big of a hit Once Upon a time is. This show would be spontaneous. I dont just want to work for disneyland but Disney. WOWZERS! wouldnt that be amazing. I am an actress, a singer and a funny girl, or woman…whichever you prefer. Im 5’0 tall. Basically a shrimp but hey being short is funny so i roll with it. Help me make my dreams come true. Its cliche i know. but its true. I want to be an actress for Disney and for abc. What better way to do that, then be apart of a collaborated show. I say brilliant!!! my email is, please consider me. Im very talented, not to sound conceded but its true:) Let me be apart of the magic. I live for entertaining. Seriously think about it. You wont regret it.

I am currently dealing with acne, but I’m willing to put on makeup. I have brown eyes. People tell me I have Chinese eyes. I am currently enrolled in dance classes, singing lessons and piano lessons. I would NOT mind being an extra or having a small role. I just need something so I can start making a resume. Plus this is my favorite ride at Disney World. I’ve been to Disney World twice and have ridden this at least 10 times.

  19. I absolutely LOVE the Idea of ABC and Disney getting together. This will definitely be a hit, and I would love to be apart of it. I’ve been a Disney fan since I can remember, ABC is very creative so the both together couldn’t be a better choice.
    I’m a 23 year old, with very little acting back ground but I am an extremely FAST learner! I’ve done some dancing and gymnastics throughout the years.

    Hi, I am fifteen and I am an actress at Roxy Regional Theater in Clarksville. I do have a lot of experience with acting and singing. I have been in over six plays this year at my school and at my work with the Roxy Theater. I absolutely love acting, and I would love to move my skills to a higher level than just live performing in front of an audience. I love anything that I get to do because I love acting. Ever since I was little I would make up my own plays perform them to my friends and family. But when I turned 13 I finally got the chance to live my dream. But as I said before I want to actually be noticed by people. I have been in a few plays this year as in Anastasia, A Christmas Carol, Spoon River Anthology, Peter Pan, Fable Fest, and General Valley Hospital. I badly hope that I can get a chance to be in this. I am going to attach an audition video of myself just so you can see me act. Again, I would do anything to get a part in this.

  36. Hi, my name is Davi Hutchins and I just recently turned 17. I have been a part of drama/ acting in my school for about two years. It was something that my grandmother did when she was younger, and as soon as I worked up the confidence to try it, I fell in love with the artwork. My mother, brother and I have been stuck in an unpleasant and rough situation for twelve years now, but through acting I found a way to escape whatever was going on currently.
    I have wanted to work on tv/film for a long time now, and would love to have the opportunity to work on such an amazing project as Finding Dory, and it would mean the world to my family.
    Thank you for your consideration,
    Davi Hutchins.

    thank you again.

  45. HELLO,
    My name is Camryn Capizzi, form San Diego CA,
    I am very recently 19 years old (as of February 16th, 2013), I am fair/light skinned caucasian female, with very curly fair blonde hair (I would be willing to temporarily straighten or dye my hair, even permanently dye it depending on the color), I have medium-big sized blue eyes (medium hue), I am 5’6″, 160 lbs, and have an apple-type body shape.

    I have always love to perform and have an extensive performance resume, but most of all I perform musically. I have a youtube channel with only one song as of now. I have worked and performed with The (Paul Green) School of Rock in Chatham NJ and Vista CA for 5 years as of graduation last year, and work and perform with the Chops Woodshed Academy in Solana Beach CA for 1 year, and play many-multiple instruments proficiently, including vocals.
    — – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
    Although I am very much into music, I have always loved to act and would consider it a major part of my career and life plan, but unfortunately do not have as much experience as I would like to in that department. In a way, I think that makes my performances more raw, and in certain roles that can be a very good thing. I can bring an animal real-ness and emotional honesty that must be shown through someone who desperately wants something they know they have to work extremely hard to even get close to, and I desperately want this. I also have been told that I have great comedic timing. I would put my whole heart and sole into making people love my character, and if you choose me, I promise I will come at it with everything I have got.
    -Camryn Capizzi.
