Do you have beautiful skin (that is not Lira-pasty-white) like the lovely Brandi? Then submit to ABC's Casting Project where they pick actors to come in and do a showcase for them in front of all their casting folk. It's hard out there if you're an actor of color, so they do this every year!

As part of its ongoing effort to discover and develop culturally and ethnically diverse talent and actors with disabilities, the Disney ABC Television Group's Casting Project will hold auditions for consideration for the ABC Talent Showcase.
ABC's Talent Showcase has established an industry standard in creating opportunities for talent, with the majority of participants being given the chance to audition for a variety of ABC (and other networks') pilots and ongoing programming.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SUBMITTING:
1. PLEASE SUBMIT HEADSHOTS AND RESUMES ONLY. NO TAPES.
2. DO NOT DOUBLE SUBMIT.
3. NO PHONE CALLS.
4. NO SUBMISSION WILL BE ACCEPTED BEFORE OR AFTER THE SUBMISSION PERIOD.
Participants for the talent showcase must be at least 18 years old. Previous acting experience/training is required of all, but professional representation is not necessary.
ABC will contact selected actors to schedule an audition.
ABC has a long-standing commitment to promoting diversity in the entertainment industry through a variety of projects administered by its Talent Development & Casting departments. The Casting Project offers an excellent opportunity for talent that might otherwise go unnoticed.
I suggest you write on the envelope your type, for instance "18-25 Hispanic Female" etc. And if you speak foreign languages, be sure to have that on your special skills!
