If you got a fam, gather 'round and check out the description of the gig on Project Casting.

Casting directors are now casting real families to work on scenes filming in Chicagoland Area.

No word on when filming will begin, but usually, these types of casting calls aren't for months or years into the future.

Then again, when the rate is $700 per person to be involved in the scenes, I'm sure we'll be ready when producers come calling.
