    I go by Kaveh and they call me Mr. Natural as in I can act natural as an extra and not look weird. Not looking to steal a scene just to do something fun. I work at a bank… I know, boring. I am available whenever to film. My wife Jenny is beautiful. We would both love to be extras. If you need us to do a kissing scene or something like that, we are experts. Just kidding but you get the drift. We will send you some shots later today.

    Hi I loved the original movie and would be great for a guy getting exploded scene. I also have six brothers who arent doing anything do to the poor economy we would make a most excellent group of gun smugglers. long live the wolverines.

  15. Will Simon says:

    I have a real passion for films such as Red Dawn and Amerika. I have little acting experience but enough to know that its something I am good at. But even to get a part with no acting needed would be amazing. I would even play one of the damned Russians if it got me in this film. I also don’t need to be paid, although I recently lost my job so money would be good.

    I recently moved to Michigan from LA for work… yes I actually came to Michigan FOR work! While in LA I worked in the entertainment industry as a side job for a few years. I did everything from extra work to lead roles, commercials, and stand-in work. I was on the OC, ER, and multiple other shows. I could send in a resume and my head shot if I could be sent any additional info! Just thought it would be fun to do some extra work up here in this miserable weather… Thanks for the time and consideration!
