Paid Film Extras Sought 

Staff Report

A major feature film, Granite Mountain, will be shooting a large scene in Los Alamos Friday, Aug. 5 and is looking for paid extras to work in the film.

The production, starring Josh Brolin, Jeff Bridges and Miles Teller, is the story of the real-life Granite Mountain Hotshots, an elite group of wildland firefighters that courageously battled one of the worst wildfires in history to save an Arizona town.

The production is looking for men, women and children, dogs and cats, people with horse trailers and boats and cars. They are casting police officers and firefighters as well as families evacuating their homes. 

Anyone interested in applying to be an extra should email a photo with name, height, weight and phone number to, and include the year, color, and make of their car. Put “Los Alamos” in the subject line.

Elizabeth Gabel previously worked on such projects as “Let Me In” in Los Alamos along with  “Lone Survivor”, “Lone Ranger”, “Cowboys and Aliens” and “Sicario”.
