Lights! Camera! Action! While we can't promise this will launch you into movie stardom, it could be a pretty cool experience.

This Saturday and Sunday, April 28-29, The Missoula Food Bank and Community Center will be hosting open casting calls for those interested in working as extras in upcoming film projects at Montana Studios. Those hired will be paid $75/day. And the auditions will be led by someone with a pretty impressive background.

Executive Producer Michael David McGuire has worked on projects for Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, CBS, ABC and Disney. As an interesting footnote, it all began for Mr. McGuire 50 years ago in Missoula.

The open casting call will run from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. both days. You will receive some instruction time with Mr. McGuire, audition prep and casting photo shoot. Please note that these auditions are also a fundraiser! A $15 donation will be requested from each participant, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Missoula Food Bank. We have more information on the Food Bank and the casting calls here.

Good luck and remember all us little folk who helped make you a big star!
