D.C. Extras: Get Ready for Your House Of Cards Close-Up

Ever dream of seeing your name in lights? How about the soft blue light of a laptop instead?

There’s a D.C. casting call out for House of Cards, the David Fincher-led political drama based on a BBC series of the same name that’s due to premiere on Netflix later this year. It’s “the largest Hollywood project to be shot in the D.C. area since Transformers 3,” as per a press release, and casting agents are on the lookout for all sorts of stereotypes that glimmer in Hollywood’s eye about Washington. And who knows what may come next? The release hints, “You may also be considered for recurring or feature roles.”

There are all sorts of big-name actors tied to the $100 million series, of course, meaning that if you’ve got a thing for Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, or Kate Mara, the casting call could be your chance to, like, totally get ignored by them all.

So, if you’re a middle-aged “elegant Washington type”, or can pass as a 40-to-60-year-old politician/lobbyist/reporter or 21-to-34-year-old Hill staffer/aide/reporter, April 1 is your day to shine.

The casting call takes place at Hill Center, 921 Pennsylvania Ave. SE from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Is this for anyone, or must I be registered as an actual "extra" somewhere. Are we suppose to bring anything like a resume? --thank you!
