Public Enemies Casting Call

Postby MadMind » Fri Feb 15, 2008 3:29 pm

Public Enemies starring Johnny Depp to hold extras casting call in Madison
So admit it, who wants to see their mug on the big screen? And then brag to all your family & friends like you're some kind of star or have made it into the big-time?

So who's going to the casting call tomorrow?
I admit it, it crossed my mind, but I don't have all the requested clothing (no overcoat, no one-piece suit, and probably no period-appropriate ties).

I'd go, but I hate wearing a tie. Also, I doubt if they'd want a guy in his late 50s with a beard and a pony tail.

I have to work tomorrow, otherwise I would. I've got the clothes, even a fedora to complete the olde timey look.

I am unfortunatly over the height limit of 6'1" which I assume is in place so I don't tower over the stars in any scene.


ah, shit. I'll call in sick. Only get one shot to be in a movie with batman and ed wood.

I just want to get close enough to have him sign my "P" record.

Guess I'll have to try and get in as an extra.


The cover of Dancing Queen is REALLY hard to make it through.

True. The wife and I were extras in The Grifters, which was shot in part in Phoenix. We were used in the scenes at the horse track, filmed at Turf Paradise. I got in a scene with Anjelica Huston (standing in line at the pari-mutual windows) for exactly that reason; I think she's like a foot taller than me, at least with heels on.

Well, I didn't make it out. That's alright, I was born to be a star - not just an extra!
Anyways, any of you other forons actually make it out?

I did. There had to be a couple thousand people present.

Nothing but waiting in a line and having my picture taken at the end. if casting likes my photo, I get a call.

It's a Waiting for Guffman version of life imitating art imitating life.

I went to the casting call. Does anyone know what the second picture was all about? Everyone got their picture taken once from chest up, but only some were asked for a second picture, full-length.

This happened to me, and I'd really like to think it's good news, that I'm on the shortlist or something.
