Casting calls for new Jason Bateman flick and “Drop Dead Diva”

You oughta be in pictures.

You oughta be in pictures.

Jason Bateman returns to Atlanta for another movie and the project needs extras. Previously here for “The Change-Up,” which filmed here in 2010 and early 2011, Bateman now will appear with Melissa McCarthy in “ID Theft.” It’s a comedy.

An open casting call is planned for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 31 at the Atlanta Marriott Century Center, 2000 Century Boulevard NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30345.

(I listed the address in its entirety for the ease of those Map Questing it on their smart phones).

The casting call will take place in the hotel’s Century East Ballroom, and both those with extras experience and those new to the game are welcome.

From the post:

“Men and women, ages 18 and over only. Non- union. ALL types are welcome, all ethnicities, but the following types are especially needed: Bikers (motorcycle), dive bar patrons, country and western bar patrons, skid row and prisoner types, business (men and women) and mall goers. Come dressed as one of these types for a photo!”

Bring your photo ID and Social Security number. For full details and to register online see this website.

In other casting news, “Drop Dead Diva,” which films mostly in Peachtree City, needs men 28 and older who can play basketball.

“You must have experience, we don’t want anyone embarrassing themselves,” the casting call gently urges.

Send three photos and your height, weight, sizes, experience playing basketball, and contact information to diva4atl@gmail.com with “Play” in the subject line.

The answer regarding EXTRAS is as follows: If this is a paid gig you will receive anywhere from $75-$100 a day for for a 10-12 hour day. Sometimes they will feed you sometimes not so bring some snacks or better pack a lunch. Also if your expecting to get ANY credit you won’tget any. I know plenty of people who go around from movie to movie making a couple bucks(example retirees and students). Also, be prepared that you may have to spend that time in not the best weather conditions inside(not always air conditioned if sheltered in a tent) or outside.

Jennifer, “Drop Dead Diva” films mostly in Peachtree City, not “Peachtree Center”…

Will Jason Bateman’s next movie be any better than that last crude, disgusting “feces bomb” of a movie filmed here with Ryan Reynolds?

I was an extra for a movie filmed here last summer. The days were long, and we filmed the SAME scene over and over and over…for 12 hours. It was so painful. I only got $80. So not worth it for me. The only part of me you can see in the preview is my forehead. Joy.

Hal: Let’s hope so. I didn’t see “The Change-Up.” I didn’t hear great things from those who did.
