    So you have to have acting experience to be an extra? I have no headshot except ones taken by family and friends etc… Also I work in the auto industry. Can I still apply?

  22. Ken Johnson says:

    I would very much like to be considered for extra casting. I’ve sent you my head shot and contact info. i’ve done comedy as well as “bad guy” roles

  23. admin says:


    No you do not need to have any previous experience. All that is required is that you are responsible, on-time and can follow directions.

    If you do not have a professional headshot, a standard photo is fine.

  24. denise brown says:

    when is the deadline for the resume and headshot

  25. admin says:

    An official deadline is not available, but extra casting should be open for at least a few months. Specific dates, roles, age requirements, locations, wardrobe, etc. are not even available yet.

  26. Mel says:

    I have a family member who is a huge drama queen, out of work and thinks that she should be famous. Im known as the comedian of the family but when it comes down to it, I think she tops the cake. We seem to get the biggest kicks out of her stories and drama in which she experiences daily. If you need assistance in contacting her, please feel free to email me. I would be glad to make this dream of hers a reality, since reality has slipped away from her brain:)
    I purchased a sweatshirt that reads “Drama Queen” for her as a joke last year and she wears it with pride.
    I would love to buy her one this year that says “Super Star”
    Good Luck with your production, GC is awesome!
