#Hollywood: Want to see your mug onscreen? Become an extra in ‘Fathers and Daughters’

Nancy Mosser Casting is looking old-school and trendy locals to play extras in “Fathers and Daughters,” starring Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and Aaron Paul. Crowe will play a mentally ill novelist in Manhattan; Seyfried will play his troubled adult daughter living in Manhattan 25 years later.

The agency will hold a casting call for men and women ages 18-40 March 27 in Point Breeze for the filming of a loft party scene; for their part, extras must be available for 12-14 hours.

If you don’t see yourself as an underground wild child, your time to shine may be next month, when the company is asking for “upscale” extras in scenes on April 9, 11 and 13.

See here for more information on compensation and booking.
