Casting Real Marines and General Extras for Amazon Show “Patriot” in Chicago

Casting Marines to work as paid extras in Chicago

Season 2 of Amazon’s “Patriot” is now filming in Chicago and there is a casting call out for REAL marines who have dress uniforms (see pic below).

This is actually a rush call and the show is looking for Chicago area marines that are available for a day shoot tomorrow. The show is casting 2 actual marines for a funeral scene in the show. The casting directors are not considering actors who are able to play marines, they are only looking for real life marines that already have a dress uniform that they are able to wear on set.  There is a second call out for extras available to work the same scene tomorrow.

The show premiered last year and is now filming a new season. Amazon has yet to state when new episodes will premiere and the series’ web page only says that new episodes are coming soon.  The series stars Michael Dorman, Terry O’Quinn, Kurtwood Smith, Michael Chernus and Amazon’s description of the series reads as follows…. Intelligence officer John Tavner’s latest assignment, to prevent Iran from going nuclear, requires him to forgo all safety nets and assume a “non-official cover” as a mid-level employee at a Midwestern industrial piping firm. A bout with PTSD, the government’s incompetence, and the intricacies of keeping his day job cause a barrage of ever-escalating fiascos that jeopardize the mission.
