While China’s next batch of action stars might be taking a more novel approach to potential superstardom, a much less glamorous, much less well-paid route awaits cfensi‘s American readers!
Slated to be a joint US-China co-production, the team for the upcoming Transformers 4 movie is looking for a whole bunch of Chinese adults (18+) for non-speaking roles over in its stateside filming. Sure, extras are usually uncredited, underappreciated, minimum wage earners. But an impressive performance can go a long way in launching a career in acting.
Helmed by director Michael Bay, Transformers 4 will feature Li Bingbing alongside Hollywood veterans Mark Wahlberg and Kelsey Grammer.
Filming will take place in the Lansing area of Michigan, so you might have to travel. Extras will be compensated for their work, however. (Plus, and I can’t guarantee the veracity of this, I heard that there will be free sandwiches available.)
Interested parties can sign up and submit their head shots, full-body shots and 3/4 shots with Real Style talent agency here. (The $15 registration fee is waived for applicants towards Transformers 4.)
