Can you pull of the look of the 1950’s? Amazon needs you to be on their new TV show! A 2017 casting call for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is searching for men and women ages 18 -100! All types and ethnicities are needed to be background extras. Actors will be playing lawyers and defendants in the series. Filming will be in New York City so tristate local talent are needed. The shoot is scheduled to be on May 11th and May 23rd. A fitting will be held on Monday, May 8th in Brooklyn, New York.
According to Deadline, Michael Zegen and Rachel Brosnahan are set to star in the Amazon pilot. Set in the 1950s, the project centers on Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Brosnahan), who had her life mapped out for herself: go to college, find a husband, have 2.5 kids and throw the best Yom Kippur dinners in her elegant Manhattan apartment. But when her life takes an unexpected turn, Midge will have to decide quickly what else she’s good at. Going from uptown housewife to a stand-up comic in a grungy club in the Village is an appalling choice to everyone but Midge.
If you have been searching for a paid extras job to participate in, this is a great opportunity. Apply to the casting call for your chance to land a role! This is a paid job.
