On Location Casting has a very detailed post about what was supposed to happen today for shooting. If you live in New Mexico and are not applying to be an extra, WHY THE HECK NOT?! What I would give to have this being filmed in Texas. And if any of you Albuquerque fans get a gander at filming, let us know. They were filming at the Hard Rock Pavilion today. OLC was also looking for a stand-in for Saoirse while they are shooting in New Mexico, but that position has been filled. If you are curious about the pay rate for something like that, then the post is still up on their page.
They may need extras through the end of filming in April, so if you have the chance, get in OLC’s database.
This was taken from On Location Casting’s Facebook Page. It is long and detailed. Congrats to all who got a part!:
