So if you haven’t heard, Kevin Costner is filming a tv series near Hamilton later this month. The best part, they are needing a lot of extras for this.
Speaking from personal experience, it is a kick to go be an extra just for the experience and to see all that is involved in shooting a movie or television series. Some get lucky, as I did, and get to double for actors and do even more than most. I have worked on several projects that have been filmed in Montana and have enjoyed every minute of it.
If you have a couple weeks, or even a couple days, to kill later this month, I highly recommend you go to one of the two casting calls this weekend. My buddy RJ Burns is handling the extras casting and is wanting to be flooded with plenty of interested people.
Here is the info about what you need to do and what the series is about:
From RJ Burns, Yellowstone Extras Casting
OPEN CASTING CALL
Open casting call for background actors/extras for a new TV series “Yellowstone”, follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders — land developers, and America’s first National Park. It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny — where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world’s largest oil and lumber corporations.
