"House of Cards" Baltimore casting call - Page 3

post #31 of 114
Thread Starter 
I had completely forgotten this. Given that there were over 600 people answering the same call, I figured the whole thing was a lark. I was just looking for a reason to wear the suit. Then I got a call today from someone from Central Casting informing me that my presence was requested as a "Featured Extra" this coming Tuesday and Sunday, respectively! Just think. I might actually be paid TENS OF DOLLARS!!! Oh man, where do they park the catering truck?


I'm supposed to call back Monday afternoon to confirm. I guess they'll tell me then what I need to bring but I plan to wear the exact same clothes that I went to the casting call in. Might as well dance with the one that brung me.


This was me later the day of the casting call. (Click to show)

Good for you.

This sounds like fun. Back when I was a student in Oxford, I was an extra in several episodes of 'Inspector Morse' (if anyone remembers that...) and a couple of films. It was always enjoyable.

Thanks, guys! The schedule keeps changing. I may be needed tomorrow afternoon/evening...or not! confused.gif

Anyhow, I was told to dress as a "reporter". Print or TV was not specified. Remember, I won't be speaking so likely not an interviewer/studio type thing.

Any suggestions?

I figure a sports coat/blazer so far. Probably either a white semi spread collar shirt or a light blue of the same.

I can choose from...
Hickey Freeman 2 button
P2230426.jpg

Brooks Brothers 3 roll 2 blazer

Brooks Brothers DB blazer with gray pants
P3250474.jpg

Sky blue H. Freeman and sons blazer

"346"
P9280026-1-1.jpg

I've got a couple of dark sport coats as well. Oddly, no pics.

Pants would likely be RLPL tan, Canali dark blue or Polo gray flannel (first pic at top) or the greenish Mabitex in the bottom pic.

Or I could go with the navy suit from the earlier posts that I wore to the call.

Roger. I'll bring both. I'm supposed to check in after noon to see what time the call is for. Then it'll be a long night, I suppose.

No. They kept telling me to call back at different times. Now I'm supposed to call tomorrow. Did you get in on any filming?
post #44 of 114
yeah, I was in (participated in - whether or not i'm in the cut remains to be seen) a couple. they probably pushed you to tomorrow because we ran late on the final scene (like 2.5h of shooting one short scene) and were losing sunlight.

a few notes:

- wear whatever fits the description they tell you. my description was a "wealthy churchgoer" - specified dark (not black) suit ,white shirt, muted tie. i thought i had a great tie but they changed mine to something not SF approved. turns out my original pick was almost exactly what Spacey was wearing. they also said no to my white linen tv fold PS frown.gif

- consider bringing alternate clothing. if you need something from wardrobe, it takes longer to check out when everything is completed.

- bring something to read. you will spend a lot of time doing nothing.

Congrats! Yeah, the Central Casting rep sounded pretty exasperated about the shooting delays.

I had 4 different complete changes in the car just in case they didn't care for option A, B or C. Good to know about the P.S but I'll have it ready in case.

BTW...did they have a policy about cell phones and cameras?
