Hobbit Extras Casting Call
This time around, being awkwardly short can be very rewarding. On Tuesday, the local New Zealand “craigslist”, Trade Me, had a listing for actors who would be interested in acting as an extra in the upcoming Hobbit Movies. Due to volume of responses, the listing was removed fairly quickly, however, we expect it to return as soon as the first round of applicants have been organized, so keep tabs on it.
If you are interested in the gig, here is the content of the original listing:
