PORTLAND, Ore. -- The casting agency in charge of supplying principal actors for the TNT drama Leverage, which shoots around the Portland Metro area, has put out a call for street thugs.

The agency is interested in teaching thug, cop and security guard types how to say a line or two and maybe how to do an easy fight scene, according to Lana Veenker.

Aspiring thugs will receive information on applying for background, stunt and small principal roles on the show ... including a Thug Boot Camp, said a press release from Veenker.

A Thug Informational Meeting was scheduled for Tuesday night from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the University of Portland's downtown White Stag Building.

More information was available at the Leverage Thug web site.
