We are excited to announce a national casting call for Sheriff Bob, a supporting role in our Western SHE WAS THE DEPUTY’S WIFE.

This is a paid role and this will be a SAG project. Submissions are accepted from anywhere in the U.S.


All video submissions are due December 28th by the end of day. Please read all the guidelines and the description of Sheriff Bob below:




  • Age Range: 50 to 70
  • Ethnicity: Caucasian
  • Physical Attributes: big, strong presence.
  • Skills: experience with firearms (not required but a plus).
  • Description of Sheriff Bob: He’s the law around town but doesn’t always have the upper hand. Bob is a boastful, bragger who is truly insecure about his authority, especially when confronted by stronger men like Paul or Marshal Graham. He must prove to himself and his peers that he still has power.
