If you want to be an extra in a movie, this summer seems to be filled with chances. Just after reporting that “The Dark Knight Rises” needs extras this August in Pittsburgh, we can now report that "The Avengers" needs extras in Cleveland.
Cleveland.com is reporting on this exciting development for anyone who wants to be involved in the movie. The casting call is open, extras will be paid, and possibly up to 2,000 people are needed.
Unfortunately for younger fans, though, you must be at least 18 to be part of this. (If you’re under 18, you may still be able to get into “The Dark Knight Rises” as an extra.)
So what’s the next step? If you’re interested, go to the Holiday Inn Independence, 6001 Rockside Road, off Interstate 77 either between noon and 4 P.M. tomorrow or between 10 A.M. and 4 P.M. Saturday.
You don’t need an agent, but you are asked to dress well ( your "best business executive outfit," according to the article) and bring a pen to fill out paperwork. The actual filming should be done in August and September, so if you try out, it’s important to know you’ll be free during this time.
Extras are needed for crowd scenes and other unidentified roles.
“The Avengers” stars Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner. Directed by Joss Whedon, it’s scheduled to be released in the spring of next year.
