Huge Casting Call For ‘Shameless’ Extras In Chicago
Some casting calls are so specific that you'll find yourself on the outside looking in when it comes to getting the role of that extra you've always wanted.
Luckily for us, Showtime's award-winning show, Shameless is now filming in Chicago and they need a slew of people for a whole bunch of different roles.
The age ranges start at 18 and run all the way to 65. 4 Star Casting says they also need people of all ethnicities. Extras will play homecoming attendees, reporters, field producers, camera operators, hipsters, and people just waiting for the bus.
Think you can do any of those things? I mean, you don't have to be qualified as a reporter to play a reporter as an extra in a TV show, so I'll answer that for you. Yes, you're qualified.
The pay is $104 for 8 hours and 4 Star Casting says they're also throwing in an extra $15 "weather bump."
Filming for Shameless begins this Monday and will shoot throughout the week.
To be considered for the role of an extra, 4 Star Casting asks that you please fill out an artist application first.
If you end up on an episode of Shameless, please let us know!
