From working the beat with the Baltimore police to warding off alien invasion, an assortment of roles for area actors are popping up as Baltimore becomes a popular filming location. Two major projects, the HBO series "The Wire" and the upcoming film "Invasion," are auditioning hopefuls for filming this September.

"The Wire," a Baltimore-based police drama written and produced by David Simon of "Homicide: Life on the Street," will begin filming 13 episodes for its fourth season in September. If you are interested in auditioning, send a resume and photograph to Pat Moran and Associates, Attention: HBO's The Wire, 1301 S. Baylis Suite #425, Baltimore, MD 21224.

"Invasion," an Oliver Hirschbiegel film, will star Nicole Kidman as a Washington psychiatrist fighting to save her son, who is the only person on earth able to combat an impending alien invasion. Many roles will be cast locally, including two major children's parts, which call for a Caucasian and Asian boy between the ages of 8 and 11. Filming for this film will also begin this September. All types are encouraged to submit. If interested, send a resume and headshot to Pat Moran and Associates, Attention: Invasion, 1301 S. Baylis Suite #425, Baltimore, MD 21224.

For both auditions, include a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you would like confirmation. Also, the agency requests that no one call or drop by without an appointment.
