There’s apparently a lot of interest in “Patriots Day,” the movie about the Boston Marathon bombings starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Peter Berg. Boston Casting’s Angela Peri held an open call for local actors and more than 2,000 people were in line Sunday when the doors opened at 10 a.m. There were police on site to manage the crowd. We’re told it is the largest turnout for an open call here in Peri’s 20-year history.
