Casting extras in Pittsburgh to play recurring FBI agents and recruits
The Netflix original series is currently filming in the Pittsburgh PA area and is looking for new talent to work as paid background extras on the show. The show is interested in finding some locals who would be available to work on set as a core group of extras for scenes that are filming next month and the roles may be recurring through December. The show’s casting directors at MHC (Marinella Hume) are looking for men living around the Pittsburgh PA area to play FBI recruits (Ages 20 to 28). The roles are featured and may work quite a few days through the season so talent applying should have a flexible schedule which would allow them to work on set as needed. Please see the casting notice below for the specific role information.
David Fincher and Charlize Theron are working on a new show together. The man behind Netflix’s political drama “House of Cards” has a new series coming to Netflix. The show called “Mindhunter” will follow FBI special agents as they try to solve some of their toughest cases.
Fincher and Theron will serve as the show’s executive producers. “Mindhunter” will air on Netflix sometime in 2017. The upcoming streaming series is based on the 1996 book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit. The book is written by former FBI special agent John Douglas and Mark Olshaker and recounts some of the countries most notorious crimes. For years Douglas went after FBI’s most wanted serial killers and rapists and developed profiles for these notorious killers. According to the show’s IMDB page, the cast includes Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany and Cotter Smith.
