    I’m not seeing where it tells what to wear?

  6. Mercedes

    I feel I fit the criteria. I’m 5’11 and fairly fit. I would even jump on a plane to get down there but I live in the Canadian prairies and I just read that you must be legal to work in the U.S. and I’m guessing a work Visa wouldn’t suffice.

  7. Terrence Lawson

    At first I got excited and was considering going to try for this, because it sounds fun…. until I read it… I’m too short for one thing, and probably don’t meet this definition of “slender,” even though I am slender. I bet they wanted to say something about breast size too, but thought better of it. It’s ok to be quirky or different if you’re a guy, but to be cast as an ALIEN if you’re a woman you have to be perfect? This is so disappointing on so many levels…and I’m not a feminist either.
    UGH. No wonder women suffer from depression and other mental issues and have more eating disorders so much more than men…because we’re constantly told that we’re not good enough!! I’m so sick of it. It’s not funny, it’s not ok, it’s got to stop! This crap, this indoctrination of what we’re supposed to be and supposed to look like. I’m not overweight, and I’m in reasonably good shape, but that should NOT MATTER! This just about makes me not even want to see the second movie. I really hope you have already cast all of the quirky females and aren’t just being typical ass wipes that objectify women and treat them like meat instead of people.

      Filming is months away…. next year. This open call is for the types that are hard to cast because they are atypical, so they are getting a head start on it. Once filming gets closer, there should be more opportunities… they are simply getting the hard to find roles out of the way. Usually, extras are cast a few days before a scene.

    So no short aliens?

    I’d love to be an alien but I’m only 5’4″
