A few weeks back James Wan’s Insidious Chapter 2 held an open casting call for their biggest fan. Whoever could prove their fandom the best (via YouTube) would be personally selected by Wan, Whannell and producer Jason Blum to receive an all-expense paid trip for two to Los Angeles where he/she will get a walk-on role in the movie
While all of the submissions can be seen at the Insidious: Chapter 2 YouTube, it was 21 year old Michael James Grise who emerged as the victor. In the words of James Wan, “We sifted thru tons of entries. Everyone’s a winner in my book, but like Connor Macleod said, there can be only one.”
Additionally, Danielle Bisutti (pictured above; “Parks And Rec”) has been cast in the film, though the nature of her role is being kept under wraps. She joins Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins, Jocelin Donahue, Barbara Hershey, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson, Andrew Astor and Grise in the cast. FilmDistrict will release Insidious Chapter 2 in theaters August 30th.
