Getting a role as an extra in a movie or a TV show is one of my “just for fun” bucket list items.
There are a number of resources on the web that offer advice on how to accomplish this task.
This site at Yahoo voices, suggests you register with a reputable casting agency such as Cenex Central Casting.
Los Angeles or New York are mentioned as the easiest places to get work as an extra, but roles do crop up in other areas.
I will update the blog when I start looking for a role.
