Make an audition flyer, put it on craigslist, and then e-mail it to local college theater departments

You'd be surprised how well it works for non-union actors. Even if the students themselves don't fit the role, they always pass around the info to everyone they know.

Give mandy.com a shot as well. We've had good luck, either directly via Mandy or by having an agency pick up on our production via a post on Mandy.
