Extras needed for ‘Contraband’ in New Orleans

The Mark Wahlberg flick Contraband is looking for extras and stand-ins for the movie, which begins filming in New Orleans on Jan. 17.

According to casting agent Tracy Kilpatrick, men, women and children of all ages and ethnicities are needed. Because the film will be set largely in Panama, however, Hispanic men — both Spanish and English speakers — are in particular demand.

Anyone interested in applying can send a photo and contact info to contrabandextras @gmail.com or stop by the casting office at 1215 Prytania St., Suite 371, New Orleans.
