Casting directors are now casting actors, models, and talent to work on scenes filming in New York City.

 

About Godfather of Harlem:

Forest Whitaker will star in the EPIX series Godfather of Harlem. It has been reported, “The series is titled “Godfather of Harlem.” It will tell the true story of crime boss Bumpy Johnson (Whitaker), who in the early 1960s returned after 10 years in prison to find the neighborhood he once ruled in shambles. With the streets controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy takes on the Genovese crime family to regain control. During the brutal battle, he forms an alliance with radical preacher Malcolm X, catching his political rise in the crosshairs of social upheaval and a mob war that threatens to tear the city apart.”
