Extras Casting Call – Casting all ages – kids, teens, adults and seniors!

“Promised Land” will be shooting in Pittsburgh, PA and a casting call has gone out for paid extras and background actors. The Feature Film, “Promised Land” stars Matt Damon (The Bourne Trilogy, Good Will Hunting, The Departed), John Krasinski (The office, Big Miracle) and Frances McDormand (Almost Famous, Transformers:Dark Side of the Moon). “The Promised Land” is about a salesman who experiences life-changing events after arriving in a small town. “Promised Land” will be released in theaters in 2013.

The movie is currently in production and casting directors are searching for males and females, all ages and ethnicities, to work as paid, non-speaking extras!

Casting directors are especially interested in people with great character faces, farmer looks, senior citizens, baseball players, upscale men and women with formal wear, teens and kids.

We love casting people who are new to the business; don’t worry about not having any acting experience. To work as an extra no acting background is required.

The film is casting people to work one and two-day shoots (including multiple day shoots) in the Pittsburgh area from late April through early June, 2012.

Casting directors are also looking to cast a little league team from the area (10 year old boys). If you know of a team please have the team contact send information to and put “baseball team”
