The extras casting business is, in our opinion, the greatest industry in the world. Anyone can "be in the movies!" All shapes. All sizes. All looks. All ages. All ethnicities. Your “type” is needed daily! Anyone can be cast as a background actor/extra, stand-in, photo double or look-a-like, it’s that simple.
You don’t need fancy-schmancy headshots. You don’t need acting classes. You don’t have to be a sexy model or a size zero. Background actors range in great diversity. Think about it. Go watch your favorite TV show. Watch the diner scene where the two lead actors discuss a bank robbery. See the people in the background sitting at the other tables. They are you - real people.
