You (and your car!) oughta be in pictures…

the_fast__furiousBuzz will not rest until all of you are famous.

Our latest opportunity is for you and, potentially, your car!

“The Fast and The Furious V” will be doing some filming in Atlanta. Specifically, the film will shoot some party scenes near the Georgia Dome.

That’s where you and your wheels come in. From 5 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20, at the Atlanta Marriott Century Center off I-85 near Clairmont Road, casting crews will be on the hunt for extras.

(The hotel’s address and phone number: 2000 Century Boulevard NE, Atlanta, GA 30345; 404-325-0000.)

Because the film, which will once again star Vin Diesel, is to be set in Brazil, the casting folks will be looking for people who appear to be from there. They’re interested in “good looking” folks ages 18 to 30.

They’re also looking for cars to star as automotive extras. “Custom street racers,” whatever that means, are especially welcome.

But the bottom line is this: hot looking people and hot looking cars, come on.

If you’re interested please e-mail pictures of you and your ride, along with your age and contact info to ff5extras@gmail.com.

“Fast and Furious.”

Usually describes the cell talking driver tailgating me on I-285.
Maybe they could film parts of the series there.

Could be the perfect opportunity for INS to bust a good number of folks. And the people that typically drive those cars are a joke, losers.

@Texas Tea, where are they going to deport the white suburban kids? They are the majority of the losers that you seem to detest.

I’d be willing to throw big dollars on the fact that there will be more Mexican and Latino types in the crowd, and some of the black persuasion. And I will say a few white kids that wanna be black.

@ Texas Tea, “wanna be black” lol!!!! That is true that white kids would love to be black!! Paying for tans, lip injections, butt injections, etc… So yeah, you are dead on!! And, I am sure there will be more white boys, or white girls with black guys on the set.. Enjoy your weekend :)

@Texas Tea, go sit your racist azz down somewhere. You are pathetic, you probably have no education, your a loser, you probably are not married and if you are, your wife is probably a fat porker and you two live in a Destiny Doublewide Trailer. Get a life, a job, and an education, speaking of INS they should deport your azz just for commenting.

huh, gmail address? That isn’t hokey, it’s the new rave….check it out and merge ‘all of your emails (hotmail, yahoo, comcast, etc.) into one ‘In’ box called ‘Gmail’….Come on ATL, get in the know. As for Fast and Furious…love it, love Vin, taking my hotrod down there, dying my hair black and putting on dark makeup…I’m so there!

This is absolutely legit. I have worked with the people who were awarded the casting on this project for years. They establish a new gmail account for every project they work on, to keep submissions manageable and separate as they are often working on multiple projects. Their past projects are many and have included: Stomp the Yard, One Missed Call, We are Marshall, Past Life, Due Date, The Walking Dead, etc. Extra work often involves 10-14hr days, minimum wage and lots of waiting… but its a lot of fun!

Brazil has many racial groups. “White” & “Blacks” as well as many citizens of Asian (specifically) Japanese descent so there should be a VERY diverse crowd in the extras scene. There should be no reason why all of the extras should be White Latino. I wonder how they are going to make the GA Dome look like Brazil? All I know is I want to see Paul Walker when he is here for filming. So Sexy!

What exactly do they mean by pictures? Like you trying to look sexy or just a normal shot?
