An anonymous source sent us this casting call for extras that was recently posted in Chattanooga, TN:

We had heard rumors that Water For Elephants, which stars Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon and has been filming in Ventura County, CA, would be filming scenes in Chattanooga too, but now we have the proof, and filming dates!

*Just to clarify, though it seems likely Rob will be in TN for the shoot, we have not had any confirmation of which cast members will be there.

You have to be in the right place at the right time. I want to reiterate that last night as the SUV left, Rob rolled his window down, waved, smiled and said “Hey Guys” to us. My daughter and her friends will never forget that special moment. We invested long hours this past week(Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday) looking for Rob with many disappointments. We were lucky. I’m sorry if you missed your opportunity. Just because you are scorn, please don’t berate Rob on the internet. Chattanooga is promoting the film industry in our area. You will have many more opportunities to see films being produced in our area. This is the beginning for us…

i know a person who saw Rob today at a guitar store in Nashville.

@desperatelyseeking? Rob did wave to his fans a couple of times. It was NOT his fault he couldn’t come talk to us. You have to remember he is WORKING. 20th Century Fox had a $10 million dollar insurance policy on him, therefore his publicist wouldn’t let him come meet fans. Very little people actually met him while he was here, many lied about spottings and meeting him, etc. So don’t be mad at Rob for not “showing his fans he appreciates them” because he seemed like such a nice guy.

Also, there were alot of fans screaming and running around acting crazy. If you’re a true fan of Rob’s, you know he doesn’t like pictures and crazy, screaming fan girls. The only times he comes out is AFTER he’s finished filming when there’s about 15 or less people that are acting CALM. So chill out, and quit blaming him.

All of this madness started after DL made the comment that Rob was numb to his fans. Apparantley he or someone in his camp read and felt her concerns as well as others and he came out. He did exactly what she said he hadn’t done. He let the window down, smiled, and waved at his fans.
With that said, I am impressed that Rob did do something. He really has alot on his plate and can’t please everyone. I have enjoyed reading everyone’s comments and sincerely hope Rob Pattinson as well as we the fans, understand he is AMAZING! and FINE and the BEST MUSICIAN since RAY CHARLES and the best ACTOR ever!

Rob, if you so happen to get this message, take a break, enjoy your life (private time) and get ready for the next wave of crazed fans wishing you well.

I have to say I hope he comes back to Tennessee. Not so I can meet him (although that would be grand!), but so that he can see all the amazingness that is TN. I particulary love Pigeon Fordge and Gatlinburg. He is an amazing, down-to-Earth, level headed, talented, and GORGEOUS actor, and I wish the best for him.
