Do you think you have what it takes to be on TV? If so, you probably don’t. I hate to burst your bubble, but face it. Good actors are few and far between, and there’s just no way you’re the next Nicholas Cage. Fortunately, for those of you interested in being on the small screen, there may be an opportunity for you that doesn’t even require acting.
On Thursday, August 15th, you may get your one chance at a big break. Reckless, an upcoming CBS legal drama, is filming an episode in Charleston, South Carolina. They’re looking for extras, and here’s where you, the readers of this site, come in.
The makers of the show need extras between the ages of 18 and 25 for a scene that takes place at a fraternity house party. That’s not all they’re looking for, though.
Reckless is looking for extras who are real life couples who must be comfortable kissing on screen, male and female college types, and a “male frat bro to do a keg stand”. The bro must have keg stand experience, and will be drinking water or some other non-alcoholic drink.
Comfortable kissing a girl on screen? Fuck it. Why not? Keg stand experience? Does a bear shit in the woods? Pretend to be having a good time and drinking alcohol, while actually drinking water, soda or some other alcohol-free drink? Fuck that.
Look, CBS. If you want this to be an accurate representation, you have to let the extras drink real booze. It won’t work any other way. Trust me.
The folks over at CBS took it a step further. They need a little bit more than just keg stand experience.
Additionally, if the “frat bro” has a six-pack, he must be comfortable with no shirt on.
Wow. So, you want a shirtless “frat bro” who does keg stands and then makes out with his girlfriend? That’s very…uh…European of you, CBS. What the hell is this supposed to be, Twilight: Fraternity Edition?
Despite the odd nature of the role, extras get paid $58 for eight hours of work, and time-and-a-half for anything over that period. Honestly, that’s not too shabby, all things considered.
