Chicago Fire on NBC

The TV series “Chicago Fire,” will be filming a really large accident scene shortly and a casting call for extras has gone out. The production needs about 150 extras to play accident victims, pedestrians, looky-loos and more.

Producer John Roman will be filming the large accident scene at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union which is located at 7000 Olson Road. The series is now filming it’s second season and those that live in the area and are available to work this week and next are encouraged to apply as extras.

All extras must have open availability between October 4th and 10th for filming. All roles are paid non-speaking background and producers are looking for all ethnicities to participate including kids.

Any Chicago residents that are available for those dates may apply by sending a photo (current photo, snapshot), their availablity and contact info to extra.326@gmail.com. The subject line of the email must read “five day.” Include height, weight, age and phone number. They will be casting for this scene for the next day or so, so if you want to participate, you better get your info out ASAP.

The show’s producer said “We’re looking for people who live in the western suburbs.” Since the scene will be filmed at a railway museum, one must assume it will involve trains in some fashion.

“Chicago Fire” is a TV show that is based on, well you guessed it, a firehouse in Chicago. The show includes an amazing amount of fit, hunky men and as an extra, you may get a chance to stare at them from the sidelines. The show revolves around a fictional Chicago Firehouse, firehouse 51. The show explores the lives, both professional and personal, of the firefighters and paramedics of the Chicago Fire Department.

If you are a fan of the show, hope this casting call wasn’t a spoiler.

Chicago Fire airs on NBS on Wednesdays at 10PM and stars Jesse Spencer, Taylor Kinney and Monica Raymund.
