“Aces” Sequel Draws Nelson, Kristofferson

Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson — the stars of CBS TV’s ‘A Pair of Aces’ will return to Austin, early next month for a sequel and the producers are seeking numerous extras for the filming.

A variety of ages and types are needed for several scenes in the movie, including a courtroom and press conference, and scenes at a political fundraiser garden party in which extras will need to be well-dressed, according to Helen Griffiths of Third Coast Casting. 

Clean shaven men in thier 40’s are being sought to pay Texas Rangersm as well, she said.  Extras are p;aid $40 a day and they could be needed on the set for several days.

A casting call for extras is scheduled Wednesday, December 19th from 2:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Sabine Room of the Stouffer Austin Hotel, 9721 Arboretum Blvd.  Griffiths said applicants should bring a recent photograph of themselves.

The movie will be called, ‘Another Pair of Aces’ and will begin production at various locations in Austin, and Pflugerville on January 7, according to Griffiths.  It will be directed by Bill Bixby, who has appeared in several movies in addition to television work in ‘My Favorite Martian,’ ‘The Courtship of Eddie’s Father’ and ‘The Incredible Hulk.’

Nelson plays Billy Ray Barker, a con man and Texas Ranger Rip Metcalf is portrayed by Kris Kristofferson.  Rip Torn stars as retired Ranger Jack Parsons.

‘A Pair of Aces,’ which aired last January to excellent ratings, was written by Austinites Bud Shrake and Gary Cartwright, who are executive co-producers for the sequel.

Farm Aid Plans for 2022

Sunday, January 9th, 2022

Happy New Year! 2022 is a critical year for bringing change to our farm and food system. Though we just entered into the new year, we’re already gearing up to accomplish some big goals.

We hope you’ll follow along as we help farmers and ranchers through the COVID-19 pandemic and natural disasters, by providing emergency assistance and long-term recovery strategies. We will deepen our ability to provide emotional, legal and financial expertise to better serve ALL farmers. As always, we’ll continue to fight with and for family farmers and rural people, with their voices at the center, to ensure a powerful 2023 Farm Bill, as well as address challenges like factory farms and climate change. And, that’s only the beginning!

We’re grateful to be doing this work with you. Together we are making real change for family farmers and our food system!
