If you or your friends are interested in becoming an extra for the film Me & Earl & The Dying Girl, please contact MEDGextras@gmail.com. You MUST be 18 to 25-years-old and be available for a full shooting day in the East End area on Friday 6/27, Mon 6/30, Tues 7/1, Wed 7/2, OR Thurs 7/3. We will be raffling off prizes to those who participate, including an Apple TV, iPad, and iPod Shuffle . Additionally, author and screenwriter Jesse Andrews will be on hand for a (free!) book signing.
Though this is an unpaid opportunity, you will be a part of the making of a feature film based and set in Pittsburgh.
Written by Pittsburgh-native Jesse Andrews, Me & Earl & The Dying Girl (who also wrote the novel), is a coming-of-age comedy about three high school friends. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story) will direct the film. The cast includes Thomas Mann (Project X), Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel) and R.J. Cyler. Also featured in the cast: Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Connie Britton (Nashville, Friday Night Lights), and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, Wolf of Wall Street). Please note: some actors may not be shooting scenes on any of these days.
