Extra! Extra! Casting call wants them all


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- While One Tree Hill is exiting stage right, Iron Man 3 is preparing to set up shop in Wilmington.

A production of superhero size needs a lot of extras, and Premier Casting is fattening up its database of extras to be ready for upcoming films.

Gerald Thomas is one of the hundreds that showed his face this weekend. He works full time as a dental tech but says he enjoys doing extra work on the weekends. He’s especially excited about the chance to work on a Marvel movie.

"It's definitely an all day event,” extra hopeful Thomas said. “Be prepared to wake up early and kind of go home late; pretty fun on set. You get a chance to meet a lot of good people and network. I'm enjoying myself."

Like Thomas, many of the folks who applied over the weekend are comic book and Iron Man fans. Iron Man 3 is set to start production soon, and the release date is scheduled for May of 2013.

If you're interested in being an extra, the open casting call is going on at the Community Arts Center in Downtown Wilmington Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
