Extras also needed to be in the background of an episode of the HBO miniseries “Olive Kitteridge,” that will be filmed in Worcester, Mass on Monday, Oct. 21.

According to film organizers, the casting call is looking for men and women “of all races and ethnicities” and will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m on Saturday, Oct. 12, at All Saints Church, 10 Irving St. You must be over 25 years of age, and bring a recent photo of yourself that will not be returned.

Frances McDormand was the star of movies like “Fargo” and “Almost Famous,” and will be the star of “Olive Kitteridge,” which has already filmed four episodes, including one in Gloucester, according to IMDB.com.
