Casting call for Cameron Diaz-Jennifer Lopez movie

brooklyn_decker_jennifer_lopez_cameron_diaz_june30newsnea2“What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” the movie starring Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz, is holding an open casting call for extras from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Porter Sanford III Performing Arts. The address is 3181 Rainbow Drive, Decatur, GA 30034.

Not a lot of details this time: “They are looking for individuals, male or female who are interested in working as an extra in a feature film. All ages are needed.”

So basically if you have a pulse, you’re in. Past casting calls for this film, also starring Chris Rock, Chace Crawford and Anna Kendrick, have been more specific. Early on they held a casting call for new moms and their babies and moms-to-be.

If you’re interested here’s the contact info we have. Call Christopher Gray Casting at 678-894-3863 extension 410; or e-mail your a picture and contact information to: cgcastingatlanta@gmail.com (put CALL in the subject line.)

Sometimes casting call email accounts get overloaded and start bouncing back. If that happens let me know.

Also, a friendly reminder that although I write about movies that are filmed here I do not work in the industry and have no influence whatsoever in who gets picked for these extras roles. So no need to email me your resumes and booty-shot photos. My retinas are still scarred from the last time I posted a casting call and some folks (who all seem to have stripper poles in their homes for some reason) got confused.

The tagline of this movie should be “ridden hard and hung up wet” with those two girls.

I do recall you telling a blogger this week you were unpaid at your postion at the AJC. The statement above proves it.

Markie Mark,

All ladies so far, and all very fine people and I am sure, don’t get me wrong. Just a little more information than I need. I keep waiting for HR to come over and say uh why is there so much soft porn arriving in your AJC in-box?

Still recovering from working as an extra for Tayler Perry’s “Why did I get Married Too”! – Let’s be honest, if you have a pulse but ‘no commercial look’ I would stay away from this! Why? because the pretty boys and girls get to do things close to the talent e.g. walk-by’s or if they have sit down scenes at a restaurant or in my case the airport, they get to sit and do all the fun things. Little old dawdy looking me was in the background on my feet in a hot studio lot, barely doing much and I was bored to tears! Atleast we were fed (pre-packed sandwiches, no mayo or mustard) and the pay? $87 after taxes for a 14 hour shoot! oh, p.s. that was the day that Michael Jackson died and I was an extra for an airport scene for Tyler’s movie incase the fact checkers come popping out of the wood works! you know how that goes :-)

@ Marina… At least you have been able to get work as an extra. At 5′11 tall (without shoes)… I think my height is starting to hinder me…. But I keep trying anyway!

I am unable to come to the casting call on Sat(8/27)…I just found out about it & am scheduled to work @ my job. I would LOVE to be an extra. I also have 2 children(11y.o. boy & 6y.o. girl) who would love to be extras in any scenes needing children! e-mail me if you’re interested in any of us sending in pictures! Thanx & have a great weekend! :-)

No, I would prefer to be in something good like another Smokey and the Bandit movie. Those two gals are kind of rough looking and I bet in person with no makeup they are downright skanky.

@Marina…that’s not totally the case…..I’ve seen people that are not so beautiful get picked for speaking parts….actually (if *EXTRA* casting)–is gonna bump you to a speaking role, they want you looking like an “average joe”–honest to God, they don’t want anything to take away a “STAR”..it’s when you *INTERACT* with another star on screen they’ll want you to “match” (which makes sense)-but for all the wannabe’s out there…this is a lot of fun…..*IF* you take it at face value/what it is (ie. You’ll *NEVER* get to meet J-Lo or Cameron…if your *LUCKY* you might get to stand near them and if you’re *REALLY LUCKY* (and they’re having a good day)–you might get a courtesy smile if you make eye contact with them…that’s about all you can expect..and *NEVER EVER* show up to a Movie set as a “FAN Boy/Girl”—that will get you put so far into the background as to be a BLUR…just show up, stay quiet, do what you’re told..and the *MORE* you look like you want to “Hide”–the *MORE LIKELY* they’ll pick you (because they know you’re not gonna do something stupid to upstage a “Star”……just sayin…and sending Booty pics is about as PATHETIC as it gets…people, you’re applying FOR A JOB….you think if someone said include a pic with your resume they’d consider you with a Booty pic..not matter WHAT IT SAYS you’ll be doing…a nice conservative head shot like Ms. Brett has says 1000x more than your beautiful booty…TRUST ME on that one..

Oh and @Marina…*everyone* knows TP sets feed you worse than a Jail Bird..*laughing*..you should see some of the comments I’ve seen on that….(on the other hand)—I’ve been on sets and fed made while you wait Stir-Fry, Mahi-Mahi, really GOOD food…but yeah, don’t go to a TP set expecting a 5-star lunch…

Everyone should be an EXTRA at least once. It will make you appreciate even the worst tv shows or movies. THE WALKING DEAD really sucked. It is great for the un employed. By long days. Same pay as working at McDonalds. MCdonalds at least is air conditioned and usuallly will treat you with respect.. And you can forget the speaking part. If you believe u will be DISCOVERED in Atlanta as an EXTRA. you need a reality check. they come here to film cause its cheap. Once EXTRAS wise up and demand at least $7.50 and hour. Being an extra is equal to flipping burgers. EVERYONE SHOULD DO IT ONCE.

The last time I was an extra, I was 26. They made me wear a speedo. I’m 60 now and still have that speedo. Should I wear it? What about hair? I had hair when I was 26. I have hair now…but it’s moved. Should I try to move it back or leave it where it is?

After seeing CD up close, W/O makeup, I still find her somewhat attractive, in a ginchy sort of way. Will that help?

My point is. It can fun. DO IT. Doesnt pay much and take a book. Lots of hurry up and wait. For your day on a movie set be prepared to be treated as a third class citizen. Dont try and sneek a pic on your phone. They will escort u off set and not have you back. I also hear Speedos are in this year.

South Dekalb is not necessary a dengerous place! I live in the same zip code as the casting location, but I am totally safe here with my 13 months old son.

Hey I am interested in the movie now that I hear JLO is in it. I don’t mind keeping my distance from that other “Star”. I just found out I have the day off and can fly in for the casting call. I don’t have any pics with a pole but will be bringing several of my baseball cards, will that do? Pay is not an issue. I am way overcompensated for my regular job. I expect to be available possibly as early as September. See you at the casting call!
