You'll never be Bill Nunn, but you could be Spike Lee's next on-screen muse.

The "Do the Right Thing" director announced on Wednesday an open casting call for his upcoming Netflix series.

The 10-episode show, "She's Gotta Have It," is a "contemporary update" of his 1986 debut film centered on a Brooklyn-based 20-something artist juggling flings with a model, an investment banker and a B-boy obsessed with sneakers, according to a Netflix press release. 

Lee credits his wife and producing partner Tonya Lewis Lee with the idea for an episodic remake.

The agency casting the series will hold an open call for actors of all nationalities ages 18 to 80 on Monday, Oct. 3 at the Masonic temple at 317 Clermont Ave. in Fort Greene, Lee said on Instagram.
