Extras Still Sought for Lincoln Film in Virginia

October 3, 2011

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 osextrascasting@gmail.com along with height, weight and contact information or mail to Office Seekers, Attn: Extras Casting, 8080 AMF Drive, Mechanicsville, VA 23111.

Anyone who has previously applied or attended open casting calls for this film may not resubmit
