Paid movie extras needed in the Bay area
San Francisco area casting directors are seeking SF Bay Area local Men available this Thurs 4/9 in for an overnight shoot in SF. This will be the last day of filming on the Steve Jobs feature directed by Danny Boyle, Starring Michael Fassbender!
The Steve Jobs film is now in production in the Bay area and has been releasing quite a few casting calls for extras. The film is set in the 80’s and the production is seeking background actors / extras who can pass for being from that time, longish hair, mustaches, for ladies… long hair, Farrah Fawcett do’s.
Universal Pictures is working on a movie about the late Apple founder Steve Jobs. Variety reports that Aaron Sorkin (Moneyball, The Social Network, and too many credits to list here) will be helming the project that he also wrote and that X-Men: Days of Future past star Michael Fassbender is set to play Steve Jobs. Seth Rogen will also star in the film as Steve Wozniak, Apple’s co-founder and the creator of the original Apple computer. At some point both Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale were considering the role of Steve Jobs but ended up passing up on the film. Universal Studios recently announced that the film will be opening in theaters on October 9th.
The film is being called “Steve Jobs” on its IMDB page and is inspired by Walter Isaacson’s biography. The “Steve Jobs” film will depict three Apple product launches in a series of 30 minute scenes, or at least, that’s the rumor thus far.
