Filming for Danny McBride’s HBO comedy, The Righteous Gemstones, begins this week and continues through September. Casting directors are still seeking extras of a variety ages, ethnicities, and types of people.

The show follows the travails of the Gemstone family of Southern evangelical preachers, and stars McBride, John Goodman, Edi Patterson, Walton Goggins, Adam DeVine and others. Crews have already been spotted filming in the Park Circle area this week.

On top of hourly pay, extras will receive $50 for each additional COVID test taken after the initial two tests, paid for and arranged by the production crew.

Interested? Send two current photos (one close-up and one full-length) and your name, phone number, age, city/state in which you reside, height/weight, complete clothing sizes (for wardrobe purposes) and description of any visible tattoos or piercings to with heading being your name, ethnicity, gender and city/state.
