Filmmaker needs extras for historical scenes

Producers will be casting extras for scenes to be shot on May 10 and 11 in Peekskill for Wonderstruck, a film directed by Todd Haynes, who was nominated earlier this year for a Golden Globe for his film Carol. The casting company is looking for men and women for scenes that take place in the 1920s and 1970s.

For the 1920s scenes, they need women with shoulder-length or shorter hair and men with short hair or who are willing to have their hair cut. For the 1970s scenes, they need women with natural looking hair and men with longer or shaggy hair. They do not want shaved heads, extensions or chemically straightened hair. Extras also must be able to attend a costume fitting in Manhattan.

To be considered, email a recent photo, whether you are a union or non-union actor, contact information, height, weight and clothing sizes to [email protected] with “Peekskill Local” in the subject line.
