‘Transformers 3′ Casting Call: Ukrainian men & women needed in Chicago


According to Seibertron.com, Joan Philo Casting put out a call last week looking for Chicago men and women from the ages 20 to 80 that look to be of Ukrainian descent.

Here’s a look at the official casting call via Craigslist:

Joan Philo Casting (Public Enemies, A Nightmare on Elm St., My Life) is searching for Ukrainian (looking) men and women (20 to 80 years of age) to work as paid extras on a feature film in April. This will be a one day shoot. This is for a major motion picture! If you are interested please send a recent color photograph (not professional) to jpextras@gmail.com. In the subject line please put “Ukrainian.” Include your phone number, name, address and all your clothing/shoe sizes.

Especially looking for Ukrainian (Or Ukrainian looking types) men 5’10” to 6’1″, clothing size 38 regular to 44 regular who know how to handle a gun. Please post all your sizes from your shoe size to your hat size [or head measurement] Please let me know if you know how to handle a gun.

Don’t be shy! Even if you have never been an extra before this is your chance. We love new people! This will be a fun shoot with an amazing crew.

Please only respond if you are Ukrainian. Please do not send any headshots, comp cards or refer us to a link to look at your photos. These photos must be e-mailed as an attachment as we need to forward photos to LA. PLEASE SEND ALL PHOTOS ASAP!

This may seem like a strange request for Transformers 3, but Seibertron.com explains, “it was also revealed this week that armies from Ukraine and Iran would be portrayed in the film.” So it looks like they’ll be shooting some of those army scenes in Chicago. Filming is expected to begin in Chicago in the next couple of weeks.

    I just moved here to Chicago from Hawaii, and was excited as hell to find out that they are shooting in Chicago. I missed the extras casting call as well, and I would love to play a bit part in the upcoming TF 3 movie! I am not Ukrainian or Iranian, nor am I in that height range, but I was in the US Army before and looked very sharp in uniform. I hope I get a callback. My e-mail is raymond.batara@yahoo.com

    I am the Ukrainian you are looking for. You put me in your film and I will bring the Pudaha and Holipchie. No one make it as good as my Grandmother Helen Sheppet Netzel from Whipple st, Belmont.

    Perrogies are Polish, Pudaha is Ukrainian—and they are not the same.
