Last fall I was a Background Extra in the Netflix movie Little Evil in the monster truck road block scene.
I was one of 3 sitting on the steps of a house, we were supposed to look bored when this monster truck made a jump.
Amazingly our scene made the cut albeit 1/3000 of a second.
Im the one on the top step.

That's awesome dude! Little Evil was a really fun movie to watch (which makes those super long days on set somehow seem more worth it when thinking back).

You totally nailed that scene!
I was an extra for Western about 15 years ago,got dressed up in a cowboy outfit and stood at the bar,I was in the movie for a blink of an eye.Long day for a few bucks and a box lunch.Was cool to see how it works though.

They just had open casting ,10 minutes from my house . I drove past the madness on the way to the club to do some shooting. There must have been 3000 people standing around.

This time I got more screen time.
This was from Assassins Code shot here in Cleveland.

I am seated next to Justin Chatwin (leather jacket) in a bar scene where he is talking to Mark Thompson.
I was supposed to look at the TV and drink my beer.

Found this online from some bootleg site....shame on me for not buying it

Geez. You all are getting better acting parts than me and I'm actually pursuing it as a profession!

Im waiting for the scene with Robert Redford, Danny Glover and Tom Waits from the film Old Man and a Gun due to release this September where I did a crossover as a prisoner.

Also just booked as a henchmen in a local indy film which looks like I will have some lines AND an IMDB credit.
IMDB credit is recognition that I was actually in the film.
Most extra work is always uncredited so im happy to tick this box in my goals.

Good advice. Tough career choice, but I’ll keep it pushing forward!

I recall a commercial that got a lot of play here.
Don't recall what it was for... Office building setting, or elevator?

Go for it! Don't let a little thing like fear, or common sense hold you back.

I always wanted to be an actor but lack of skill and a degree of ugly two bags can't hide forced me to pursue "other directions of employment". But it's cool you guys are doing it. Break a legsmile

Yeah, some have more of a natural tendency to be good at it than others, but like most things, one can work on it and get better. Many are surprised to find that it's much harder to be convincing at it than it seems.

As far as "ugly", it's kind of a non-issue. You would have had your "category" and worked within it...and then as you worked more you might have transcended your "category". I've lived in Hollywood for 20 years and trust me there are a lot of really beautiful women and handsome men that can't seem to get an acting job, an agent, in the union, etc. Looks are only part of it.
