    Anyone know if they are accepting extras from out of state or is this just for Ohio residents only for this particular project?

  2. admin says:


    We have contacted the Cleveland Film Commission and confirmed that you do not have to be an Ohio resident to work as an extra on this film. Michigan residents can attend the open casting call.

  3. Dennis says:

    Do you know what ages in particular they are looking for? Also, what would the filming dates be?

  4. Rick says:

    Does SAG have juristiction requiring a union count on the calls, or is it all non-union extras?

  5. jason says:

  6. admin says:


    The open casting calls have not happened yet. They are on Friday, July 15th and Saturday, July 16th.

  7. Heather says:

    Do you know when the extras will be required to be on set in Cleveland?

  8. Casey says:

    I’m not 18 so does that mean my parents will have to bring in a headshot of mine? So i DONT attend the call out? Do I even have to be there?

  9. Lashana says:


    I have the same question as several other people. What is the age requirement?

  10. admin says:

    You have to be 18 or older to attend the open casting call. If you are under 18 you should NOT attend the casting call. A parent or guardian will have to attend on your behalf to submit your information.

  11. Sarah says:

    I think it’s pretty lame that one has to be 18 or older to apply. What about teenage actors like myself who aren’t of age yet?

  12. Melissa says:

    Can I email my son’s picture, resume and clothing sizes?
    This would save me a trip since gas prices are so high.
    Please advise asap if yes, and appropriate email to use -
    thank you – Melissa

    behalf of Thomas, child actor, age 10

  13. Terry says:

    For people that can not attend the extra casting call, will there be an email available to send their information to?



  14. Jean Grey says:

    Is there any way to submit via email?

  15. Aaron says:

    Is the open casting call strictly submitting information about yourself? Or is it a try out to make a certain role? (I am trying to figure out if it is worth driving 4 hours)

  16. Ryan says:

    Folks please read the info above before asking something. It seriously answers almost all of these questions. And @ Sarah, don’t complain about it. Be mature.

  17. admin says:

    At this time, no email submissions are being accepted. This may or may not change in the future. We would suggest attending the open call if you want to work on this film.

  18. Christa says:

    Can teenagers audition if they have a parent or guardian with them?

  19. Lauren says:

    What is the compensation for extras that are hired onto the film?

  20. Sandi says:

    If I am a parent dropping off a headshot for my son who is 11, will they need to take me as an extra being that he is under age?

  21. Tim says:

    Do I have to be there prior to the starting time or can it be anytime between 12-4:00 on Friday and 10-4:00 on Saturday?

  22. Cameron says:

    Are they acceping email submissions now? And if so, what email address do you send them to?
