Last Minute Casting Call for Extras

This was a casting call I found on the Sophisticated Ignorance site. I’m not sure about the reliability of the source, so just be careful, as always, if you respond to it. They’re looking for local actors/actresses who can be added to shots at the last minute. If someone finds out this is just a scam or something, please let us know! Good luck to whoever auditions!!

The Stephanie Meyers (Twilight Saga) novel “The Host” is coming to the big screen. The Host (2013 release) is now in production in Louisiana and will be shooting in New Orleans all week. The movie is seeking New Orleans residents who can be background extras on the movie. Specifications are below.

This is a paid job for movie extras. The pay is around $100 for a 12 hour day. Please only apply if you live in the New Orleans area and will be available to shoot next week. All extras must be 18 and over.

The Host – shooting from Monday Feb. 27 2012 to Friday March 2nd 2012.

The director is very specific about extras– we’re now taking photo submissions for fit, neat, put-together men and women of all ethnicities available for a day or two on set (possibly more), all ages over 18.

If interested, in addition, please send us the following info to :

Are you able to wear CONTACT LENSES?

Please give us your availability from this Friday through next week (there may be fittings on Friday).

And please attach 2 photos– one headshot and one bodyshot, as clear, straight-on and well-lit as possible. Please NO photo-shopped, dark, flattering angles or disguising clothes. It’s a waste of both of our time!
