Well, this is quite the surprise! It appears a major motion picture is set to be filmed in Western New York and guess what, they're looking for extras!

According to WIVB, Casting Buffalo has just posted a casting call for extras on what the website listing is calling a Paramount Pictures feature film!

Here's what they're looking for in regards to extras:

  • Anyone with an Amish-type beard or someone who could be shaped into having an Amish-type appearance.
  • The casting call is looking for Amish-looking extras of both men and women, along with all age groups, including children, teens and elders.
  • There's even a call for a "Youth German Singing Group," which you can see here.

The dates extras would need to be available for March through May, and COVID-19 testing is required prior and during filming.

Those looking to apply for these roles can visit Casting Buffalo's website or email submission@castingbuffalo.com.

This comes after Bradley Cooper and Guillermo del Toro filmed Nightmare Alley in Buffalo back in February of 2020, as well as John Krasinski filming A Quiet Place: Part II in Western New York in 2019.

There was a tease that more major movie shoots would be coming to Buffalo a few weeks ago, so this could be the first of those!
