[image-1] Based on the calls for extras alone, we’re pretty stoked for HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones, which is currently filming in the Charleston area. A few weeks ago, the producers of the comedy about a televangelist family were looking for “cyber goth” actors. And now they’ve got their eyes out for people with “’80s style and ’80s hair.”
If you are like, so ’80s, then get ready for filming, which takes place next week on Tues. April 16 and Wed. April 17. The show needs 300 people for that first day and 100 for the next — so your chances are pretty good.
Gemstones is also looking for people with vehicles from the ’70s and ’80s that are in good shape. All these people and good-looking cars will be used for a flashback scene of church goers, hence the need for selling the look.
All races and types of people are need and all extras are paid.
If you are 100 percent available for next Tuesday or Wednesday email TRGrequest@gmail.com with the date you’re available as your subject line. In the body of the email, include: Two photos, one close up and a full length; your name, phone number, age, height/weight, clothing size, and description of your car.
