Extras are still being sought for Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln," which will be filmed in Richmond and Petersburg.
Casting director for extras Billy Dowd tells The Progress-Index that the casting crew is looking for men at least 18 years old, no taller than 6 foot 1 and weighing no more than 200 pounds. African-American men are especially being sought to play Union soldiers.
Restaurant experience is a plus for extra roles as servants for White House scenes.
There also are still openings for women.
Dowd says the jobs are a good opportunity for people who currently are unemployed. Extras will earn $79.75 per day for up to 10 hours. Sometimes they may be required to stay on set longer.
Applicants may send a recent photo to firstname.lastname@example.org along with height, weight and contact information or mail to Office Seekers, Attn: Extras Casting, 8080 AMF Drive, Mechanicsville, VA 23111.
