If you’ve ever dreamed of sharing screen time with Al Pacino, this is your chance. There’s a casting call for extras and small roles for scenes being shot in the Bronx next week and in Westchester the week after.
The legendary actor is tackling the role of controversial Penn State football coach, Joe Paterno. Producers are looking for extras who look like college students and sports reporters, to serve as background extras and perform small roles in the film. .
The still untitled film is being produced by HBO and currently filming around the Hudson Valley.
As Michael Corleone’s father so famously said, this is an offer you can’t refuse.
