LEVERAGE Casting Notice

In a city with over 11% unemployment, you'd think more people would be looking for whatever gigs they can find. Here's one for anyone who's curious about the world of television, lives in Portland, Oregon, and has some free time on their hands:

CASTING NOTICE - TIME SENSITIVE

LEVERAGE, TNT’S HIT TV SERIES IS STILL SHOOTING IN PORTLAND AND HIRING HUNDREDS OF EXTRAS!!

EXTRAS ONLY is still currently casting all the extras, featured extras, stand-ins and photo doubles for the third season of the hit TV series, LEVERAGE.

The series stars Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton and is a drama about a team of thieves, hackers and grifters who act as modern-day Robin Hoods, taking revenge against those who use power and wealth to victimize others. Produced by Dean Devlin (“Independence Day”, TNT’s “The “The Librarian”), John Rogers (“The Cosby Show”) and Chris Downey (“The King of Queens”). They are filming 16 episodes for season 3 from now until mid-August in Oregon.

“We are hiring thousands extras from our database who are getting paid to be background actors on a hit prime time show! It’s a great opportunity to make some extra money and have fun being involved in the process." We are booking ALL TYPES! Log on to the website as soon as possible and make sure everything is current including your photo, sizes, current email and contact info, and vehicle info.

You do not need to be available during all shoot days as the work for extras is sporadic, and the schedule can change at a moments notice. Some people will work only 1 or 2 days and some will repeat in different scenes working multiple days. However, the more available one is, the better chance of being cast. Please update your info as soon as possible! Preference is also given to those who complete the free online workshop on what is expected of a professional extra.

*Please post this or forward to anyone you know who might be interested. If you are currently signed up with Extras Only, DO NOT REAPPLY OR SIGN UP ONLINE, you are already being considered! However, if you feel you fit one of the above descriptions and have not been contacted by our office, please e-mail casting@extrasonly.com include your name, photo from your profile and membership status. We will contact you if interested.

I've done this a couple of times, and it's a great way to catch up on books and podcasts. Most of your time is spent waiting around (and getting paid for it! w00t). It's also given me new respect for film crews. They're the ones doing all the heavy lifting--often literally--and anything I can do to help them on set is capital-G Good.
