African American Extras Needed For Leverage

Tell all your black friends.

PORTLAND, ORE. Rutabaga Background Casting, a division of Lana Veenker Casting, is urgently seeking individuals based in the Portland area who are interested in working as extras in an upcoming episode of TNT's "Leverage," shooting in and around Portland.

In order to accurately portray the various locations depicted in the next episode, the casting company is particularly in need of African-American individuals, as well as all other ethnicities.

Instructions on how to register as an extra are posted on The Casting Scoop.

Extras earn minimum wage (eight-hour minimum, regardless of hours worked), plus overtime pay after eight hours. Shoot days are sporadic, but long (can be 12 hours or more) and extras are required to be 100% available on their work dates. Rutabaga Background Casting does not charge extras any fees to be listed with its company. There is no charge to create a basic profile and no requirement to upgrade to a premium account.
