The cast and crew of Chicago Fire is planning to shoot a big accident scene on Dec. 14 and they need extras to play evacuees.
The show is looking for lots of Chicago background actors – both men and women of all ages and ethnicities – to work in the outdoor scene that will include lots of smoke and fire.
All extras will be paid $80 for an eight-hour day, and time-and-a-half after that as a typical shooting day takes about 12 hours.
To apply, send a current photo (NOT a selfie) with your height, weight, age and phone number to email@example.com with “Dec. 14th” in the subject line.
If you aren’t called to be an extra, don’t worry, based on the show’s ratings, it appears there will be many more opportunities for Chicagoans to appear in Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago PD. Chicago Fire’s fall finale ranks as the series most-watched episode since March 3, while Chicago Med’s latest episodes have been rising 11% week to week, according to Variety.
