Extras Casting Call for ‘The Host’ in Baton Rouge

One of our readers brought the casting call below to our attention.

RPM Casting in Louisiana is looking for “put-together” extras for the upcoming movie The Host, which is based on Stephanie Meyer’s best selling book of the same name.

Diane Kruger has joined the cast of the film, scheduled to shoot February 13, 2012 to April 20, 2012 in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, as this casting call confirms.

Check out the details (which are also posted on CraigsList) below:

The feature film, “The Host,” written and directed by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, In Time), based on the Stephanie Meyer (Twilight Series) book, will be filming in the Baton Rouge area beginning Mid-February.

We’ll need some athletic, attractive, well-kept, put-together extras on the tall side (Men 5’10” an up, women 5’6″ and taller).

Men and women of all ethnicities, between 18 and 50, who fit the above description are welcome to attend our Casting Call!

If interested, stop by our office (address below) and we’ll take your photo on site (please don’t bring one– we’ll just throw it away) and collect some information about you on a Size Card (height, weight, etc.) It’s a chance for us to see you “in real life,” which, because there aren’t very many extras on this show, is very important to the director, who is very specific about what he wants.

LOCATION: 9215 Interline Avenue, First Floor, Baton Rouge LA 70809

TIME: Between 10:00AM and 3:00PM– whenever you can make it. Should take about 20 minutes.

WARDROBE: Please, little or NO makeup/ hair product. The director is in to a more natural look. Please come in neat, clean casual to business-casual clothes that show off your body type, but nothing shiny or bright– natural/ neutral tones are best (think greys, browns and khakis)

RSVP at [email protected]

++ Please, no children under 18 years old
++ This is only for people available for work in the Baton Rouge area
