Trying to Play Dead

So yesterday, I called the Central Casting hotline to check for any extra work that I can get. There were quite a few potential jobs and I actually replied to a call for a Filipino looking man, late 20s, to play a dead soldier for the upcoming movie Terminator: Salvation. The description is a dead soldier in the rain, lying on the ground, in just his boxers. The background is that the soldier was killed and his uniform was stripped off of him so that the bad guys could wear it. Wet and naked on the ground?! How fun would that have been! Obviously, I didn't get it... but it's just so cool that I CAN be doing things like this!

Oh no! How disappointing! I would have loved to have been able to buy the DVD, pause the scene and then proudly point out the naked dead guy as my good friend!

This may sound like sarcasm but I think you know me enough to know I'm actually serious lol.

I agree with the commenters above. :) It'd be cool to point to a dead guy with only his boxers on in a movie and be like, "Hey, I know him!" XD

You sure they weren't casting for a porno flick?

I never go to movies, rarely watch on TV, but If you had got the part, I'd have gone.

Good luck on future parts. Maybe you'll get one and be "discovered."

TO BE OR NOT TO BE, THAT IS THE QUESTION. Hahahhaha! I think that would have been a cool role to be in.

Love,

I was an extra in "I'll Believe You". I was eating at Slackers restaurant. The scene was cut. There was no exposed flesh.
If I had that part, it would have been wet boxers and probably a woody. LOL.
