Thursday, January 5, 2012

Hear ye, Filipinos with the big Hollywood dream: As you may know, the latest installment of the Jason Bourne movie series, Bourne Legacy, will be shot in the Philippines; Shooting locations include the famous Jones Bridge, the Navotas Fishport, the San Andres market, Intramuros and El Nido, Palawan. In light of this, its official casting agent, Casting Calls Manila, has made a call to all Filipinos out there who want to play extra in this huge Hollywood film. They need a thousand extras, so go on and take your chance now!

Interested candidates may send their profiles (name, age, height, vital stats and contact numbers), and picture to ASAP. Deadline of submission is on January 6. Minimum age is 13 years old. There's now maximum age limit; Anybody can send in their profiles as long as he/she can walk!

For those of you who may think this casting call is dubious, check out Bourne Legacy star Jeremy Renner's official tumblr post about the audition himself  HERE.

Again, submissions are only till this Friday, January 6 (Manila time, of course), so get your asses moving, people!

I almost fell off my chair reading that call in a friend's Facebook wall. A chance to see Edward Norton, in the flesh *drooling*. I'm not ashamed to admit that I've the biggest crush on the guy since high school. Have always adored him, even as a tattoo-ridden, hardened Nazi criminal in American History X, or the cunning psychopath in Primal Fear. Now if I could only get Jigs to approve of this stint with my 6 1/2 month-pregnant belly. 

Until then, I'll see you in my dreams, Edward Norton. Sigh.
