I cast paid, extra roles for feature films, but you probably already know this. I cast the non-speaking roles. NON-SPEAKING.
Got this? Good. I can put you in a cool bar scene, or put you out on a beautiful city street, "Hey, is that, Katie Holmes?"
Or I can have you freezing your backside off playing a bum on Lower Wacker - it's all good, baby!
