Casting Calls for TF3 in Chicago & Los Angeles, Filming Date

{mosimage}It looks like things are gearing up for Transformers 3. From the Extra Casting blog, principal photography will begin on May 1, 2010, in Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow, and Washington, D.C. Shooting and casting calls are going in Chicago, Illinois, and in Los Angeles, California.

The Windy City's casting call we've heard before:

  • "Ukrainian men and women, 20 to 80 years of age. You do not have to be Ukrainian, MUST look Ukrainian."
  • "Ukrainian or Ukrainian looking types of men 5'10" to 6'1", clothing size 38 regular to 44 regular who know how to handle a gun. Please include a note in your submission that you know how to handle a gun."

For those living in the City of Angels:

  • "Males, 66+, ethnically ambiguous, weathered, tattered, frail, featured roles. Talent will likely require an interview and/or wardrobe fitting in the near future. They will consider SAG and non-union for this as the look is very specific and they need very thin, very weathered men."
