Producers for the mob movie "10th & Wolf", starring Val Kilmer and former MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee, are seeking extras before the movie begins filming Sept. 7 in Pittsburgh, PA, according to the Pittsburgh Gazette. They still need another 200 Italians, or people who look Italian, teenage and older, producer Suzanne DeLaurentiis said.
The best way to get a role as an extra is to look the part, said Stephen Black, co-founder of Talent Group in the Strip District. The company casts lead and supporting roles in films. Bring diverse changes of wardrobe that might fit the scene, he said.
"It may not sound fair, but sometimes they may take somebody over someone else because they have a good suit," Black said.
"10th & Wolf" is about events that led to a mob war in South Philadelphia.
The war was between young mobsters who expected to assume control of a crime family. Filming in Pittsburgh ends Nov. 1. The star-heavy cast also includes Brian Dennehy, Lesley Ann Warren, Dennis Hopper, Giovanni Ribisi, Piper Perabo and John Leguizamo.
