Doin' it for the Fame
Hey, Houston: Be in (the background of) a movie!
If "appear in a real-life motion picture" is on your bucket list, it's time to cross it off, no acting skills required. Safety Point, a film starring Fantastic Four's Chris Evans and Law & Order's Jesse L. Martin and based on a story by Houston attorney Paul Danziger, is shooting in Houston for the next five weeks, and they are looking for extras.
Ok, so there's no pay, but what monetary compensation could equal a story to tell at parties that will last a lifetime? Shoots start Wednesday—as in, tomorrow—and go through March 12. Most days will last about five hours and include lunch, with different numbers of extras needed depending on the scene.
The movie is described as "A David-and-Goliath law drama about a drug-addicted lawyer who takes on a health supply corporation while battling his own personal demons," and will be filming courtroom, office, residential and hospital scenes around town—meaning no standing out in the cold or rain between takes.
