Want to try your hand at background acting? I've dabbled in it a bit here in LA (Burbank/Hollywood), but only worked with the Jonas Brothers. Haha. And I'd so be there next Monday, but this movie set is in NYC.
So if you're interested and have some time, maybe this is something for you. Don't get too excited about seeing Jon or other celebs, though. I would almost bet Jon won't even be on set yet, and I've learned from experience that the main stars are hardly ever at these open casting calls. And even if they are, they're virtually inaccessible. So please, don't head over there thinking you'll land autographs and pics.
